Looking for a new place to grab some beers? A new bottle shop called BeerLOVE opened last week at 714 S. 4th St.
This new shop, which we first told you about in April, specializes in local, craft and rare varieties of beer.
At BeerLOVE, there is a selection of about 500 beers to choose from, sorted by type in the fridges at the back of the store. Owner Kristen Cevoli says, “there’s a cooler for everyone.” The selection includes categories ranging from organic and gluten-free to IPAs, stouts, Belgian beers and more.
In addition to the beers in the fridges, there is also a rotating list of beers on tap. There are 8 taps, with the selection changing every week or so. BeerLOVE will also be installing a Randall system soon, which will infuse the beer with specialty flavorings.
One of the specialty offerings at this bottle shop is a membership program. This program, which costs $250 for the year or $140 for 6 months, gives members the opportunity to try out a specially-picked six pack each month. Other perks of the membership includes first pick of specialty beers that are in limited quantities, along with some other special tasting events.
They also plan to host tasting classes and specialty samplings. The first official event for BeerLOVE will be their grand opening party on August 28, with some tastings, giveaways and fun for Fabric Row’s 4th Friday events.
BeerLOVE also has a small food menu, including a few sandwiches, s’mores, beef jerky and pickles that are made with Victory beer, gourmet popcorn from MoJo’s Pop Co. and more. Since they don’t have the largest of food menus, Cevoli says that they encourage customers to bring in their own food from other restaurants or order from GrubHub while enjoying some beers here.
BeerLOVE also hopes to add some seating to their small outdoor space in the near future.
BeerLOVE is open from Tuesday and Wednesday from 12 p.m. to 9 p.m., Thursday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sunday. You can check out BeerLOVE on Facebook here.
