The Scoop: Beer bottle shop to open on Cherokee Street

There’s no shortage of places on Cherokee Street to kick back with a beer or cocktail, but stopping to pick up a six-pack of craft brews on the way home is a bit of a challenge. Co-owners Justin Harris and Ryan Griffin aim to change that when they open Saint Louis Hop Shop at 2606 Cherokee St., this month, as reported by St. Louis Magazine.

A longtime craft beer enthusiast, Harris said that Saint Louis Hop Shop shop will supply St. Louisans with a wide selection of canned and bottled brews from local favorites like 4 Hands, Schlafly and Urban Chestnut. “We want to get as many (beers) from the city as we can,” he said. “We’re looking for something from everyone that does … bottling or canning.” Harris also wants to bring in a selection of national and international craft brews.

The 850-square-foot shop will also have a small tasting area with four taps, enabling customers to sample beer from breweries who don’t bottle, like The Civil Life and Modern Brewing. “We didn’t really want a huge space,” Harris said. “We wanted somewhere that was small, but gave us room to grow into. As we expand our selection, we can make sure we always have the freshest beer available to our customers.”

The duo chose Cherokee Street as home to Hop Shop because of its location in St. Louis city, as well as the vibrant cultural scene and cooperation among business owners in the neighborhood. “Cherokee (has) a different vibe. (It) is so authentic, and so much culture,” he said. “Everybody is so willing to work with each other and help each other out.”
