What are your goals for the future of Scratch's Pub? "We are looking to provide the Fowler community with continued service, local entertainment and above all be a relaxing place for locals to unwind and socialize," said new owner Chris Montoya.

Do you plan on keeping it Scratch's Pub? It remains Scratch's Pub. For the past 30 years it has been Scratch's Pub and the Montoyas look to not only keep the bar alive, but bring a new spirit to the bar. Montoya plans on scouring the bar with Grizzly memorabilia.
