A reportedly sober driver crashed into the strip center at the southeast corner of S. Shepherd Dr. and W. Alabama St. in the early hours of Sunday morning, according to KPRC. The unplanned beer run left the Jugs Draft storefront shattered open, and gave the Shepherd branch of Jenni’s Noodle House a new side entrance. Strip center neighbors Burn Smoke Shop, Mega DJ, and Mattress 1 are seemingly undamaged; all involved humans are reportedly undamaged as well.
Rare beers, however, were a major casualty of the event: The SUV crunched into Jugs’s bottle coolers, prompting the craft beer shop to liquidate what was salvaged of its chilled inventory in a $2 firesale yesterday. (Jugs is named for its 64-oz. growlers-to-go of draft beer, but also sells bottles and kegs.)
A post to the store’s Facebook page indicates that the shop plans to reopen; less-damaged Jenni’s anticipates closing its newly acquired door and reopening the old ones as soon as Saturday. The accident took place across the street from the former home of Ruchi’s Taqueria, Roeder’s Pub, Fly High Little Bunny, et al. — now replaced by a CVS and a parking lot.
