Brew-print for Success

Apple's Wine & Spirits to open Monday

(Continued)

Somerset —

In recent years, that’s changed slowly however, piece by piece. A couple of local wineries received the permission of voters in their respective precincts to sell their products, in 2003 and 2007 respectively. In 2004, the City of Burnside voted to allow drink sales in restaurants only, and reaffirmed that decision in a 2007 re-vote by a wider margin.
But only Somerset now has the capability to sell alcohol in stores — although until now, only malt beverages were available. On Monday — to the pleasure of local wine-lovers and Kentucky bourbon aficionados alike — that’s all about to change.
“This town’s needed this for years and years,” said Jordan Absher. “We all knew it but didn’t think it would happen though for a few more years. When it did, everybody was tickled to death. We’re just ready to turn it around.”
