Some of our readers weren't happy when we announced the forthcoming of a new beer and wine store in downtown Homewood. Here's what folks are saying now that is finally open.

  • "Love it!"
  • "it's beautiful and I have only heard positive reviews!"
  • "Love it! The place is fabulous and the staff couldn't be nicer."
  • "Who wasn't happy? I love it. Excited to go back. I think that some of the staff could probably be a little better educated on beers and breweries, but, I'm sure that will come with time."
  • "Can't wait to try it"
  • "... very happy.. A beautiful store with great brews!"
  • "so glad they opened, super new addition to Homewood."
  • "I thought it was beautifully laid out, great decor! I enjoyed sitting at the bar sharing a bottle of wine with my daughter and friends!"
  • "Damn fine place, cheeky and powerful beers on tap, decent selection of ciders."
  • "The place is just what we need. I have heard nothing but positive reviews."
  • "I loved it!"
  • "It's a great place and I had a very nice time trying new beers with my husband. The owner and employees are very friendly and knowledgeable too. I'd go many more times."

Earlier this week, we posted the swearing-in ceremony of Homewood Police Department's newest addition, Officer Michael Kozlowski. Many of you had messages of congratulations for the newest member of our force. Here's what some of you had to say:

  • "This is a proud moment for Michael and a proud moment for Homewood ..."
  • "Congrats!!"
  • "Congratulations to officer Kozlowski!"
  • "Homewood is very lucky to have such a fine caliber of police officers!"
  • "Congratulations, Mike! We're lucky to have you!"
  • "Michael is going to be an asset to the HOMEWOOD police dept. He is an upstanding young gentleman who will serve your community well! Congratulations Michael!!!"

Thanks again to all our friends for your continued readership and support.
