(Oct. 19, 2012) The town of Berlin is getting another new business, but this one is not located downtown. Pitt Stop Beer & Wine will be located in the former Sherwood on the Shore building on Route 113.
Owner John Derrickson told the Board of License Commissioners in Snow Hill on Tuesday that his new store would be “something really classy.”
The board granted his request for a seven-day beer and wine license. Because a person may not have an alcoholic beverage license in Worcester County in addition to another county, Derrickson’s license for Pitt Stop Beer & Wine in Pittsville in Wicomico County would be transferred to his father.
Derrickson said the new store, also named Pitt Stop Beer & Wine, would attract people leaving the county ball fields across Route 113 and from those picking up their children from daycare, another business on his property. He would like for the store to be open “for the spring market.”
Berlin has two businesses, Cheers and Your Store Market, which sell beer and wine. Both are on Old Ocean City Boulevard. Many years ago, another business sold beer and wine on the property of what is now Worcester Preparatory School. Known as Menszaks, it also sold ice cream cones with three large scoops of ice cream for 12 cents.
