Visit Lone Pine Brewery's website and you might think you've stumbled upon an active livestream. Visit a second time, though, or watch long enough, and you'll realize the slightly-blurred video of a man painting is simply a long loop. It's a clever conceit, and does convey the intended message that Lone Pine is under construction now at 219 Anderson Street in Portland's yEast Bayside neighborhood.
According to a note from an August "Beer Muse" column, Lone Pine's founders are Tom Madden — who runs Madden Beverage in Saco — and John Paul. The partners hope to open in December with "a spacious taproom" stocked with American-style beers. The company will join two existing breweries in the popular neighborhood, Rising Tide and Bunker, as well as a handful of other yeast-based businesses.
