The Cellar's Move to Oshkosh

I mentioned last week on Facebook, that the Cellar Brew Shop will relocate to Oshkosh. Doors to the homebrew supply shop will open here on Tuesday, August 30 at 1921 S. Washburn. Here's a look at the outside of the place. The Cellar will go into the space formerly occupied by Ruff Cuts.

A bit of background: The Cellar is currently located on S. Main St. in Fond du Lac. It's been in business there since 2009. This is a full-scale homebrew shop selling everything for brewing and packaging beer. The store also offers a full-line of winemaking supplies. The owner is Dave Koepke. He’s been in the homebrew supply business since 1997. For more backstory, go here.

The Cellar’s last day in Fond du Lac will be August 27. Koepke says if you’re looking for bargains on brew supply’s you’ll want to visit The Cellar that day. When the Oshkosh store opens on August 30, Koepke anticipates that he’ll still be working to get things organized. “The doors will be open, but it’s going to look like a construction zone,” he said.

The new space is 3,200 square feet. Large enough for the brewing demonstrations and classes Koepke plans to offer. The easy access provided by its location just off Highway 41 will likely make The Cellar the hub for homebrewing activity in this region. Here’s a look at the interior, currently being remodeled.

This should provide a tremendous boost to the Oshkosh homebrew scene. Considering how many homebrewers there are in this city, it’s surprising we haven’t had a store like this before. I’m looking forward to finally having a local homebrew shop.
