A joyful message posted on the Maltose Express Facebook page gave us the 'hoppy' news:
"Happy Friday fellow Maltoseans! We went to the P&Z meeting last night and they approved us to have a brewery in Monroe! WOO HOO! It's been a great week! We want to thank everyone for all of their support. We have amazing customers and are so grateful for all of you!"
