Spicket River Brewery Is Opening in Lawrence

Another new brewery is on its way to the local area, and this one will be located in an historic mill complex that's actually on an island.

Eater Boston is reporting that Spicket River Brewery is planning to open in Lawrence, with an earlier Facebook post from the place indicating that it will reside within the Island Street Studios at Union Crossing, which is located on a small island between the Merrimack River and the North Canal and is part of the North Canal Historic District. Eater and the brewery's Facebook page mention that the Spicket River is setting up a tap truck and mobile kitchen for events as the brewery gets ready to open, with the grand opening of the brewery--which will also have a taproom--being slated for July 13.

The address for this new brewery in Lawrence is: Spicket River Brewery, 56 Island Road, Lawrence, MA, 01840. Its website will be at
