Moosehead Breweries looking for plan after deciding agains a small batch brewery in Saint John

Moosehead Breweries says it will try to come up with an alternate plan after deciding against building a small-batch brewery on the Saint John waterfront.

The company said earlier this year that it was looking for a building to house the brewery, which would have featured a tap room and retail outlet.  

But following a re-evaluation of the costs, Moosehead says it become clear that the project wasn't possible within the planned budget.

In addition to it's large brewery  in Saint John, the company  also owns a smaller operation in Ontario called Hop City Brewing Co.
