We can all use more good beer, and Yellowbelly Brewery is known for serving good beer. Things are going so well, in fact, that they’re expanding their services up and over into the old Prescott Street Convenience building.
“We’re going to call it The Hop Shop,” chuckles Yellowbelly’s owner, Craig Flynn. “It’s going to be a combination between a convenience store and a brewer’s retail. We’ll be selling our own beer out of there, and accepting our bottles, and we’ll also sell convenience store products and, eventually, some products that we’ll do out of our restaurant, like pizza doughs and breads and gourmet sandwiches.”
All the beer will be brewed at the Yellowbelly Brewery and then transported to the store, where it will be bottled on site.
“We’ve been toying around with the idea of having a second location where we could sell our beer for a while,” says Flynn. “This came up, and we figured it was a great fit.”
