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.
