Another good beer source gone?

By Joe Ruvel · April 28th, 2009 · 4 Comments

Yesterday, I was walking home and decided to pop into Coit Liquor in North Beach to see what they had in stock. I was sadly greeted by this sign:

coit is closed

While Coit Liquor may not have been the best bottle shop for beer and wine, it was in my neighborhood – and they cared about good beer. When something new came out, they worked to get it. And more times then I can remember, they recommended a beer to me I had never heard of. North beach has very few options and it is sad to see this one go. Hopefully they figure something out and open up again.

Thanks for all the good beer, Coit.

    Argh! They were my long distance access to Russian River hard to finds!

    I hear ya Jeff – if you ordered from them online there is a chance they will still fill orders – who knows maybe they will fill those straight from the distributor – too early to tell I guess

    Have you heard any update from the owners? I think I may have seen a “For Lease” sign in the window, which can’t be good. Odd how they shut down so quickly.

    Haven’t heard anything from the owner but yeah just saw the for lease sign – so i think it it is done for now.
