In June, we reported, and confirmed with the City of Brewer, a "country style" restaurant on Main Street in Brewer.

An update from the restaurant, along with a new Facebook page, introduces it as the Whiskey River Smokehouse and will feature barbecue, music, local beer and spirits.

The restaurant posted an update yesterday:

The post reads:

WHISKEY RIVER Smokehouse will be your locally owned, go-to barbecue restaurant, specializing in smoked foods and steaks!  Follow along here for updates and news as we bring vision of a community staple to 95 S. Main St Brewer, ME.

Brought to you by the Shanos and Bazmpas families, WHISKEY RIVER will be a lively, welcoming spot with something for everyone.  Beyond our wallet-friendly barbecue, guests will also enjoy live music, local beer, craft cocktails, and picturesque views of the Penobscot River.

There's still a ways to go on this journey, but we invite you and your friends to like this page to stay up-to-date with our progress.

We look forward to serving you in the near future!
