Booze news: South Hill coffee shop anticipates beer and wine to menu | Business
The owners of the Perry District coffee establishment, The Shop, confirm they’ve applied for a liquor license to bring beer and wine to their menu.
The coffee shop went under new ownership about five months ago. This fall, co-owner Yvonne Archer, hopes to extend their hours into the evening to bring live music, an open mic and even a rotating artist wall.
“Kind of hand-in-hand with those sort of venues is having a nice glass of wine or beer on tap,” Archer said.
As long as their liquor license is approved, in either late October or early November, neighbors can expect specialty beer and wine.
Home brewers test their feats of strength
Making beer isn’t rocket science, but it is biochemistry. For months, local home brewers have been slaving away on hoppy creations for this year’s SpoBrew contest. Contestants range from amateur to professional brewers and will face a blind taste test to see who created the best ale.
The brewing contest takes place on August 25 at The Porch starting at 4 p.m. Veraci Pizza will be on site to provide food to help refine your taste palate.
There’s no cost to attend the brewing event, but donations will be taken to support The Porch’s humanitarian work with Haiti. You can RSVP via Facebook.
“I hate a drunken rogue”
Those are the words of Sir Toby Belch, a character in Shakespeare's play, Twelfth Night. Actors from Montana will be in town to perform the comedy at Pavilion Park on August 25.
If you’re not familiar with the play, a woman is shipwrecked on Illyria and pretends to be a man so she can work. Then there’s a love triangle, mistaken identity and of course drunken behavior.
The show takes advantage of the summer heat, hosting the performance outside. You’re welcome to bring your own chairs, blankets and even a picnic dinner to make the evening a fun experience.
The show is free of charge and begins at 5 p.m. Pavilion Park is located at 727 N. Molter Road in Liberty Lake.
