New neighborhood butcher in Brewer celebrates grand opening

BREWER, Maine (WABI) - There's a new neighborhood butcher in Brewer.

Emery's Meat and Produce is a family-owned company.

They're located in the Twin City Plaza on State Street.

The owners say they pride themselves on supporting local farmers and being a friendly place people can turn to daily.

They carry a wide selection of meats including local grass-fed beef, free-range chicken and farm-raised pork.

Friday they celebrated their grand opening at their newest location.

They say the city of Brewer and neighboring businesses have helped them get up and running easily.

We spoke them about what they plan to add to the area.

"A smiling face. A friendly conversation. You can get the meats cut the way that you want them cut. If we don't have it, we can help you try to find it. At first, nobody knew we were here and then, all of a sudden, word of mouth, it caught on and we've increased every single week. It's exciting. Very exciting," said Amanda Nason, manager at the Brewer location.

They're already giving back. Customers who brought in canned goods Friday to be donated to the food pantry in Brewer got discounts.

You can find Emery's on Facebook.

They also have locations in Gardiner and Waterville.
