Meet Won Williamson, the man responsible for Thomas Street Market's impressive beer selection:

You have a huge variety of beer. What motivated you to provide a more extensive selection of intoxicants at your convenience store than the standard Natural Ice, 5-hour Energy, and rubber cement?

It's better to have more variety, especially of craft beers. I want customers to think, "Wow, this is a great place to buy beer." Wine, too—I want ladies to shop here.

[Laughs] Do you find that ladies prefer wine?

I want them to feel comfortable here—it's more like a supermarket than a convenience store. I also support small, local wine distributors.
