Pictures of the Wops Hops Brewing Company Grand Opening in Sanford

Attention all beer lovers: Wop’s Hops is at last officially open!

Walking in Downtown Sanford

By Sumalee Eaton of Sanford-Centric I get mixed reactions from people when I tell them that I walk everywhere. For me, this is the best thing ever.
