Chance to Win Free Beer for a Year at our October Patio Party!

A Liquor & Gift Store that

Feels Like Family

Located in Cresco, Iowa visit The Ox & Wren Spirits and Gifts.

Come visit our local gift and liquor store. A fun shop born out of sibling rivalry. The ox in our logo represents Aaron Wemark the audacious younger brother who was aspired to transform the long-standing Cresco Liquor Store into a unique specialty shop for his older sister Maria Larson (the wren) to fill with all her treasures. It's one of those things where you kinda have to know them to get it. We feature a weekly beer tasting show on our Facebook Page called, "Beers from the Wrens Nest." 

On the show, a local father-son pair who work at the Ox & Wren share their thoughts about their favorite alcoholic beverage- beer. We are proud that the show has turned into a local hit with a strong following! There is so much to do at the Ox & Wren. Those who stop by can shop a wide variety of home decor and seasonal gifts, in addition, a huge selection of alcohol and beer.
