The Murphy group applied for a micro-brewery licence and president Kevin Murphy said it could be selling beer by Wednesday next week.
"It's exciting before Christmas and it should be busy here the next couple weeks," he said.
"We're very pleased at the way it came together … we're looking to provide an experience to the consumer and provide a little bit of a one-stop shop when they're out grocery shopping."
The P.E.I. Liquor Control Commission said there wasn't much available to comment on as the application for the brewery isn't fully complete.
