Dylan and Samantha Bashore have slowly been making progress on the future home of their brewery, which will be located at 300 E. 2nd St. (gmap) Old-timers will remember the place as Sanford baseball legend Buddy Lake’s gas station.

A resolution by the Sanford City Commission in 2005 made Budweiser the official beer of Sanford, but the city is quickly becoming the king of the craft beer scene.
