The new Hopkins store will serve the trinity of great literature: books, coffee and beer
On Thursday, February 28, Cream & Amber will open at 1605 Mainstreet in downtown Hopkins. The new and used bookstore will house a diverse selection of genres and authors designed to be a place for people to read and work over coffee and beer. Featuring spinning brews from Fulton, Enki, and Indeed, among others, the space will also feature caffeinated candies from St. Paul’s Bootstrap Coffee Roasters and a tea section from Minneapolis’s Bingley’s Teas. When hunger strikes, customers can satiate their cravings with pannini, salads and other light snack options from Cream & Amber.
âWe love reading, good beer and the Minnesota community,â says Katie Terhune, Co-Founder of Cream & Amber. “We saw an opportunity to strengthen the Hopkins community, which lacked a bookstore, by creating a space where you can grab a book in one hand and a black roast, or stout, in the other.”
âWe look forward to meeting more of our neighbors and building relationships in the days and weeks to come,â adds Kacey Hruby Wyttenhove, Terhune’s partner in the business.
After the launch, book lovers will be able to stock up on literature from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday to Saturday and from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday.
