Year Recap and Top Sellers of 2021 January 26 2022, 0 Comments
Another pandemic year has come and gone, and we are still here happily providing your favorite craft drinks. 2021 has been all about adapting to challenges, and Bier Cellar underwent our biggest change yet as we enter the new year, rounding into our 10th year in business…
New Year, New Owners!
The start of December Bier Cellar owner and local legend, Greg Norton, stepped away, selling the company to two of his entrepreneurial employees, Justin and Don. The legacy that Bier Cellar holds is monumental, Don and Justin couldn't be happier to carry on Greg’s original dream born in the Summer of 2012. We look forward to meeting you all, long time customers and new. Please feel free to stop by either store, Portland or Gorham, and pull us aside for a chat!
All things considered, we are striving to plan a community celebration of Bier Cellar’s 10th Anniversary. A lot of factors are going into these decisions, and we truly want to be able to celebrate with the community. Currently, our ideas for the celebration are to host an event in June full of tastings, giveaways, special bottle releases, and possibly even catering or food trucks. We'll keep you all updated as things start to come together in the coming months.
Thank you all for your continued support, especially during these difficult pandemic times, we wouldn't be around if it wasn't for all of you!
