ST. CLOUD - The St. Cloud City Council has approved the liquor licenses for three new businesses.

- Lupine Brewing Company, in the former O'Hara's Brewhouse location, has been granted two special liquor licenses. One will allow them to start selling their beer in 64 ounce containers, also known as "growlers". The other license will allow Lupine Brewing to give out samples in their tap room.

This will become the second tap room in St. Cloud, the first being Beaver Island Brewing, which opened last week in the former Bo Diddley's building downtown.

- Konrads is a new wine bar and bistro that will be coming to a historic building in downtown St. Cloud. Owner Guy Sprenger is opening his business at 27 7th Avenue North, which is the former "A Taste of Seattle" coffee shop.

Sprenger says his hours to start will be from 4:00 p.m. until midnight on the weekdays, and until 1:00 a.m. on the weekends. He says he'd like to offer a lunch menu by this fall.

- The new Pizza Hut bar that's being planned at 305 5th Avenue South, in the 5th Avenue Live building, has also been given their liquor license. They will have a 1:00 a.m. closing time. The owner says the project has run into delays, but he's hoping to start construction in the next couple of weeks, and be ready to open for business in about two months.

Once the new location opens, the Pizza Hut Wing Street on 7th Avenue in downtown St. Cloud will close.
