Sea Dog Brewing Company Opening New Location Near Cabela’s in Scarborough, Maine
As the Scarborough Downs development continues to progress, several businesses have been eyeing vacancies and potential opportunities in the burgeoning area. CostCo was first to strike, announcing plans to open their first location within the Downs development. Last week, Hannaford announced that they would be filling the vacancy left behind by Shaw's in Scarborough. Allagash Brewing announced plans for a brand new tasting room as well. Now, another notable Maine businesses will fill the long-vacant Famous Dave's Barbecue restaurant in the Cabela's plaza.
According to MaineBiz, Sea Dog Brewing Company plans to open their sixth location in Maine, at the front of the Gateway Shoppes near Scarborough Downs and right near exit 42 of the Maine Turnpike. Sea Dog Brewing has already begun work on the interior of the restaurant, with plans to do a minor facelift on the outside of the building as well. The Scarborough Sea Dog Brewing will have the look and feel that is the same as other locations of the chain.
Sea Dog Brewing Company takes over a building that has been vacant for nearly three years, since Famous Dave's closed down in 2020. The Scarborough location continues Sea Dog Brewing's rapid growth. In 2019, they took over Easy Day in South Portland and transformed it into one of the most unique Sea Dog Brewing Company locations that exists. Beyond their six Maine locations, Sea Dog has two New Hampshire locations and three in Florida.
Sea Dog Brewing Scarborough is expected to open in late October or early November.
