About Van's Liquor Store

Van's Liquor Store has proudly served the Tri-States since the mid 1930s. Originally started by John Vanderah, it remained with his family until 1987 when Ron Jansen became proprietor. It was Ron's commitment to wine nearly two decades ago that made Van's "The Tri-States' Wine Specialists." Throughout the years, Van's has increased wine awareness through wine dinners, weekly wine tastings and our large, twice yearly wine tasting. Annually, we hold one wine tasting in the spring and the other to kick off the holiday season about two weeks prior to Thanksgiving. Our seasonal wine tastings are really a great experience; they allow people to sample over a hundred different types of wine from all over the world and do their own food pairings with the hors d'oeuvres we serve. Check out the Upcoming Events page and watch for the next wine tasting won't want to miss it.

If you are not sure which beer you would like, ask one of our helpful employees to help you find a beer to suit your taste. You don't have to travel the world for a great beer...Van's brings them all to you!

Domestic Beers

Beer...what else is there to say? When the weekend comes and your fridge is empty, you don't have time to shop around, so just come to Van's and ALWAYS get the best deal. We buy in volume and pass the savings along to our customers. We always have an ample supply of ice cold beer in our coolers, ready to quench your weekend thirst. Stock up and save when our weekly specials drop our already low prices even lower. Our helpful employees will even help you carry your purchase out to your vehicle.
