Ale House Bar and Grill expanding soon

Co-owner of the Ale House Bar and Grill in Shamokin Forrest Curran stands in front of the soon-to-be-expanded restaurant in the downtown.

SHAMOKIN — A downtown staple will be closed three days next week in preparation for a grand reopening Nov. 8 upon expanding to a neighboring building.

The Ale House Bar and Grill, owned by Forrest and Amanda Curran, made a purchase of its adjoining building (formerly a Chinese restaurant) to expand the restaurant, which Forrest Curran said came as a direct result of the proposed healthcare facility on East Independence Street.
