Five Years Ago Today, Main Street Brewing Company Arrived in the Heart of Mt. Pleasant

Can you believe it’s been exactly five whole years since Main Street Brewing Company launched in Mt. Pleasant? For this edition of #ThrowbackThursday, we present a series of Scout photographs from when the neighbourhood brewery was getting ready to receive its very first customers. Note the stocking of the merch, the walls bereft of menus, and the other evidence of the opening’s imminence. Sneak in for a pint today and give them a high five!
