Brewer Rink Under New Management 

A Brewer ice rink is under new management.

As of Friday afternoon, George and Linda Bishop are the new owners of the Penobscot Ice Arena.

George is a hockey coach, and knows just how much work the rink needs.

He says he’s up for the challenge, though and it will be a slow process.

The couple plans to do some extensive cleaning and painting.

They are also looking to repair or replace the chiller and re-open the concession stand.

The Bishop’s purchased the arena for an undisclosed amount.

The rink is open.

Bishop says the gradual improvements are due to the fact that hockey season really picks up in mid-October.
