Salty Brick Market has opened at 35 Main Street in downtown Bangor.

Talk about a soft opening. One minute the door was locked and closed, and then it wasn’t.  Welcome.

James Gallagher is the owner. Sound familiar? He also owns Bangin’ Whoopie down the street.

The plan was to open last month, but you know the drill by now. Supply chain issues for building materials. And other delays.

However it opened last weekend, and all’s good going forward.

Salty Brick Market. Interesting name, right? Step inside.

Welcome to downtown. Where should you be wanting snacks or basic groceries or sodas or beer and wine they have you covered.

Any guesses what the number one selling item might be?

And for those living right downtown one less occasion to have to get into the car when ‘a need’ hits you.

There are plans to add things to the market, and soon. Breakfast sandwiches. Coffee bar. Salad bar.

More beer? I kid.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
