Craft Beer Cellar has signed a lease to open a store next to Panera Bread in Newton Centre, according to a press release.
Craft Beer Cellar is a specialty beer shop that offers craft, micro, and artisanal brewed beers from around the world with a focus on local breweries.
Its new location at 1241 Centre St., currently occupied by the 344 apparel shop, will feature New England, national, and international beers, a variety of fine wines, “beer food” including sauces and marinades, various cheeses and other snacks.
The new location also plans to hold weekly beer and wine tasting events.
“Craft beer has been taking Massachusetts by storm and we are passionate about bringing delicious craft and artisanal beer to Newton," said Brian Shaw, the Newton store's proprietor. "Our entire staff will complete extensive beer certification and wine training, so we’ll have knowledgeable staff available to help you choose the right beer or wine for any occasion.”
This is the third location for Craft Beer Cellar, which currently operates in Belmont Center and Winchester.
