Employees worked Tuesday to arrange a shipment of products in the new Top Shelf Brews, a craft beer store that has its sights set on opening later this month.

The business, which is a part of the Hampton area's rapidly expanding beer scene, is opening in old Hampton Copy building at 826 Lafayette Road. Hampton Copy, owned by Beverly Mutrie, closed earlier this summer.

Top Shelf Brews' official Facebook page says the business has targeted Tuesday, Sept. 18, as a possible grand opening date. The page also indicates the business, which has been building out the interior of the storefront, will offer local and New England-based snack foods in addition to supporting regional craft beer makers.

Pictures of the in-progress renovations can be found on Top Shelf Brews' Facebook page.

More information about Top Shelf Brews is available on the company's website or by contacting the business at 601-2894.
