Only a slight difference between bread and beer.  Here is hoping the monks follow the Trappist tradition for brewing

No, no, Maine is the Black Bears, Providence is the Friars.

Se we are sent to Yahoo to read an AP re-cap of a Bangor Daily News story. Rube Goldberg would be amused.

BDN: Franciscan friars closing Bangor bakehouse, opening tap room in Bucksport

Well, Bucksport still thinks it's 1990, so this should work well for the friars.

I'm sure that this will become the plot to a Stephen King novel.

Originally they were going to open a flower shop. People weren't happy about it and went to the city council asking its president, Hugh DeLaney, to put a stop to it. He cast the deciding vote, resulting in the headline, "Only Hugh Can Prevent Florist Friars".

Yes that is the religious brother who cooks at the local fish and chips stand. I can't remember if he is the fish friar or the chip monk.

Will they be serving beef sandwiches? I always liked the Friar's club roast.

Hugh and only Hugh can prevent florist friars

This place is barely a quarter mile from my house. Hope they make stout!

I see the problem. You don't fry in a bakery, guys.
