https://www.wibw.com/content/news/Area- ... 53092.htmlWhat started as a hobby for an area couple, turned into a thriving business and now they have decided to retire with hopes of handing the reins to a new generation.
Walt Darling has made his own beer for as long as he can remember.
When the only place in town for supplies closed, it was difficult.
"We began driving to Kansas City to get supplies, and that's a long trip just to pick up some fairly inexpensive ingredients," Darling said.
With urging from members of his beer club, Walt and his wife Pam opened a home-brewing store out of their basement.
Seven years later, they never expected All Grain Brewing Specialists to be where it is now.
Darling said, "It kept expanding and right now we have over 500 different items in stock. So, the level of work is much higher than what we had ever anticipated."
Which is why the Darlings have decided to close the store at the end of the year.
