We love it !
Of all the uses for former textile facilities, warehousing being one, enterprises such as an internet sales of beer and wine making don’t usually top the economic development list.
Alternative Beveridge has been around awhile and recently moved operations to Belmont, and the Gazette highlighted the operation in East Belmont in a recent article.

In our humblest opinion, the entrepreneurs of the world are at the top of the list. Several of our blogsite readers and commentors own these types of businesses and are quite successful. Some grow to become giant organizations, others provide a comfortable living for the owners and employees within a community. So, kudos to ya’ll who have those types of visions and determination to make a business grow and thrive over time.
What we like about Alternative Beveridge is the simple way of teaching and servicing their customers.
A simple way to homebrew
Belmont’s thriving downtown businesses include two places where wine aficionados can seek out their favorites. The Belmont Banner — or “Bannernews” — as it is now called, ran a delightful article about the Emporium on Main, and the new Cork and Candle stores in this week’s issue.
Unfortunately, the Belmont Front Porch cannot link the source article in this case, so we will try as best as we (hiccup) can to describe some of the upcoming events.
Both stores offer wine tasting and can order your favorites. Cork and Candle has a good selection of NC wines. For wine drinkers in the area, each store has knowledgeable sales people and are happy to help your discovery process.
