Report: Convenience store answers call to craft beer with tastings
SEATTLE — A lot of convenience stores sell beer, but one in Seattle has found an interesting way to draw customers with quaffable brews, according to a published report.
In a first-person article, Seattle Times reporter Tan Vinh wrote Tuesday that Super Deli Mart is hosting craft beer tastings, featuring pints for $3 and growler refills for $10, which customers can fill at in-store taps. The store also features “brewery of the week” events in which brewers sign bottles for customers.
Perhaps it’s a sign that tastes in a country better known for cheap, mass-produced lagers are changing. On the other side of the country, New York retail pharmacy chain Duane Reade recently opened its second location to feature beer taps where customers can fill their growlers.
