Craft Beer Cellar, "the little beer store" in Belmont, has announced plans to expand and open three more stores by the end of 2013. The store, founded in 2010 by Kate Baker and Suzanne Schalow, has quickly become a go-to destination for craft beer fans in Boston. Their selection of some 1,100 beers from 300-plus craft brewers is anything but small.
The plans to franchise the store will center around Lowell, Swampscott, Chelsea, and Needham, Schalow writes in a press release. If all goes well, Craft Beer Cellar could expand to other parts of New England or other parts of the country.
