Hammy’s Spirits holds grand opening

A grand opening celebration for the new location of Hammy’s Spirits was held on Saturday, Nov. 16.

The south half of the old Kinsmen building, facing Hamilton’s IGA, was been fully renovated and transformed into the liquor store’s new home, complete with a remodelled exterior and interior that holds over 1,500 varieties of wine and more than 500 craft beers.

There were slashed prices and special offers for the opening, as well as a wine sampling station and a growler station, with local brewery Siding 14 on site.

The north side of the store will eventually be completed to have the same look and feel as Hammy’s Spirits, according to owner Jim Hamilton, adding he is currently in negotiations over that portion of the building.

The remaining uncompleted portion of the building is 4,500 sq. ft.

Work on the building was completed by local contractors with Calanah Builders handling the remodelling and all 5,500 sq. ft. of the interior of the liquor store’s tile floor being installed by Spelrem Flooring.
