Pig Liquors, which was closed for a couple of weeks, has re-opened with reduced hours and some new social distancing policies. Owner Anet Alaniz closed the store on March 21st because she needed time to work out procedures to keep customers and staff safe in the small store on Presa. 'We’re small, with tight aisles,' she explained, 'and we needed to figure out how to handle business so that people wouldn’t be on top of each other.’ 'So now we’re admitting only two people at a time, who are directed to marked spots. The staff retrieves and bags the bottles for each customer.’ Pig Liquor has operated in the neighborhood since April 1, 2010, first on Presa near Eager, then on S. St. Mary’s in space that today is Maverick restaurant, and now in a wood frame house on Presa, right behind the old Maverick location. The store reopened on Wednesday, April 1, its ten-year anniversary. Although small, the store has a good selection of liquor, wine and beer. And since the store features many local San Antonio offerings, it's possible to support local businesses twice when shopping there.
Locally-produced beverages include Freetail beer, Ranger Creek beer and bourbon, Dorćol Distilling Company rakia and beer, Rebecca Creek blended whiskey, Seersucker gin, Enchanted Rock vodka, Cinco vodka, TLC vodka, and William Talus rum. The store stocks many products from other parts of Texas as well. The store is now open Thursday, Friday and Saturday from noon until 8 PM.
