With beer brewing only becoming more popular it was about time a liquor store decided to take matters into their own hands. Hanover Wine and Spirits decided they would not only carry the typical alcohol beverages and wines but that they would also become a brew supply store.
According to the state liquor inspector, they are the only one in the state.
Hanover Wine and Spirits, owned and managed by Chadd Perkins and Dan Larson, opened this past May and has been well received by Hanover and the surrounding area.
"The guys both really enjoyed brewing their own beer and wine and had talked about possibly opening up a store and the idea just snowballed," Jenna Larson, Dan's wife said last week. Jenna who comes from a construction background was able to help the business a lot as they did the build out.
"We were able to do a lot of the work ourselves and if we couldn't do it, we hired local," she said.
The store carries over 350 craft beers including 13 different brands and 30 different selections of Minnesota beers. They are part of several local brew clubs and also offer a monthly wine club at the River Inn.
Hanover Wine and Spirits is located just off of Labeaux Avenue at 10971 4th Street NE in Hanover. They are open every day except Sunday.
