WELS The CORE Took Over a Bankrupt Bar.
Closed churches find second life as breweries - The Salt Lake Tribune.
In the future, churches and bars will merge. In WELS, that has already happened.

 WELS is not so different - providing excuses
for meeting in a bar.


WELS The CORE Took Over a Bankrupt Bar. Closed churches find second life as breweries - The Salt Lake Tribune:



"Youngstown, Ohio • Ira Gerhart finally found a place last year to fulfill his yearslong dream of opening a brewery: a 1923 Presbyterian church. It was cheap, charming and just blocks from downtown Youngstown.

But soon after Gerhart announced his plans, residents and a minister at a Baptist church a block away complained about alcohol being served in the former house of worship.
“I get it, you know, just the idea of putting a bar in God’s house,” Gerhart said. “If we didn’t choose to do this, most likely, it’d fall down or get torn down. I told them we’re not going to be a rowdy college bar.”"

 Former churches seem to be cheaper than bankrupt bars.
WELS put about $500,000 into The CORE, including a loan
to pay for cleaning up the stench. Fatal fact - The CORE
kept the beer and wine license.
