‘Beer store coming soon’

This is not surprising. The retail space at the southwest corner of West Davis and Polk is going to be a “beer store.” It looks like there’s still quite a bit of construction left to go inside.

This is the building that used to be painted blue, and the sign used to announce antiques and tobacco, which I always found amusing. Once the antiques and tobacco place closed, and the wet/dry referendum passed, we guessed this might be a convenient place for a “beer store.” By the way, does anyone call it a “beer store” outside of Texas? Is that a Southern thing?

    Any chance it’ll be a craft beer store? We’ve got Eno’s and the Moth real close, but no decent store selections.
