In December of 2012, we (Vicki Reich and Jon Hagadone) struck on the idea of opening a beer shop in Sandpoint, Idaho. We have been beer lovers and homebrewers for years and thought Sandpoint needed a store where people could gather to share good beer, talk about beer and then take a few home. It didn’t hurt that Jon was ready for something new after 21 years in the building supply trade. With Jon’s years of sales experience and Vicki’s experience in retail, we thought we could make a go of it.
Over the next few months, we put together financial projection and beer lists. We completely remodeled the inside of our store and decided that carrying some cheese and chocolate to pair with the beer would round out our offerings.
At the end of May 2013, we opened for business. We are so thankful for the incredible reception and support we have received from our customers. We plan on continuing to supply Sandpoint with great beer for the foreseeable future.
