Above, the new double IPA is poured; it's one of many "taproom exclusives" offered to visitors. PAWTUCKET – The opening year for The Guild, at 461 Main St., was a success by every measure, say its owners, and they're set for aggressive expansion in 2018. Jeremy Duffy, founder and co- owner of the craft beer consortium, said The Guild this year is looking to add another 10 employees to the 20 already working there, double its brewing to some 40,000 barrels of beer, an "incredible number," said Duffy, and develop new amenities. The departure of tenant Living Well Adult Day Services in the latter part of 2017 opened the door to devel- oping The Guild's beer hall. Also planned this year are a new beer garden in the outdoor courtyard area of the complex, a new event center By ETHAN SHOREY Valley Breeze Managing Editor On tap at The Guild: New breweries and more amenities in 2018 See THE GUILD, Page 2 Crowded field shaping up for special election Declarations for Doyle's District 8 Senate seat due this week; primary Feb. 27 PAWTUCKET – Election season is getting a surprisingly early start in Pawtucket, where a race for a Senate District 8 seat long held by veteran city lawmaker Jamie Doyle is draw- ing plenty of interest. Potential candidates in the race will have to decide quickly whether they will run, as declaration papers must be filed this Thursday and Friday, Jan. 18 and19. A special primary election is set to take place Feb. 27 if more than one candidate from either party qualifies with enough signatures to be on the ballot. The regular election will be held April 3. A primary on the Democrat side appears likely, with two pre- vious candidates for the Senate seat, Matthew Fecteau and Mark By ETHAN SHOREY Valley Breeze Managing Editor See ELECTION, Page 8 Does your child like?
