Liquor stores are always good business and never wane in productivity. A liquor store proprietor is in the business of selling packaged and bottled alcoholic beverages that will be utilized elsewhere. Alcohol for homes, for restaurants, for events, and parties are just a few of the venues for which liquor stores supply their wares. Ale, beer, wine, and different types of liquor are basically the types of beverages that are purchased at liquor stores.

Weddings are held in a wide variety of locations nowadays. Wedding venues can include restaurants, catering facilities that accommodate several large parties at one time, beaches, and more. It seems that couples are continuing to find new and unusual wedding locations all the time. Weddings at home are most times catered, and the caterer will most likely have particular liquor stores they prefer to work with and have developed relationships with. Liquor stores will supply in bulk for special events, and are also great for the purchase of that one bottle of wine that is needed for a smaller special occasion.

Employees hired to work in liquor stores are best to have some knowledge of the product they sell. Customers will come in to the store with questions, sometimes unsure about the type of alcohol they need to buy or the kind that would be best for their occasion. A liquor store clerk must be prepared to check ID’s and to refuse service to anyone who is under age.

Liquor stores do business most of the week, and weekends are, of course, their busiest time. Approximately 44,230 weddings take place every weekend, not to mention hundreds of other events at which alcohol is served. In the United States alcohol sales have reached about $219.52 billion. It is a fact that at an event where there is an open bar, at least 20-25% of the catering bill will be devoted to alcoholic beverages.

A restaurant bar will purchase their alcohols, wines, and beers in bulk from a supplier which is more cost effective for them than buying retail. Catering facilities and restaurants that host large parties such as weddings, bridal and baby showers, and anniversary parties may also use a supplier, but could sometimes use a liquor store that they like to work with.

Many bars and restaurants purchase different types of beer directly from a brewery. A popular purchase from a brewery is local beer. There are also microbreweries that produce beer on a smaller scale. These breweries will sometimes manufacture what are called “boutique” beers that are a blend of certain ingredients, or beers made for a particular theme or season. A microbrewery, because of its size, has limited distribution, but, if it begins to grow in popularity, it could be bought by a distributor. When that happens it will lose the classification of microbrewery.

Another type of brewery is the craft brewery. This is typically limited to the production of less than 15,000 barrels of beer per year. There are at this time upwards of 150 different styles of beer. Craft brewers will take traditional beers and put their own twist on them to give them a uniqueness that no other beer has. Small craft brewery proprietors are usually involved in some way, or ways, in the community that surrounds their facility.

Wineries are an extremely profitable business today. Throughout the United States there are over 7,700 wineries. A winery is a location where wine is produced. Many wine companies own their own wineries. These locations house wine making equipment and, if the building is large enough, they may also have their own bottling lines, warehouses, and laboratories. Winemakers are hired to handle the production of the different kinds of wines, beginning with the fermentation of the grapes. The juice is then blended and aged in order to produce different types of wines. There are five top wines that have risen to the highest in popularity. These are Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon.

A microwinery, like a microbrewery, is a smaller facility than a typical winery and produces less wine in volume. A microwinery does not have its own vineyard, however, which has resulted in its slow acceptance by the wine-consuming public.
