Trinken Brewing is opening soon in West Bath. Sande Updegraph / For The Forecaster

Tyler Inman and Ryan Bisson are busy putting the finishing touches on their new brewery and pub, Trinken Brewing Co., at 144 State Road in West Bath. Opening this winter with kolsch-style brews (a brewing style which originated in Cologne, Germany), the beers will be pale in color with a crisp, clean finish. The home to Trinken Brewing is being completely re-furbished and will offer seating inside and out in season. Food trucks? Yes – in the summer. More to come about this new venture in the next few weeks.
