We at Carolina Beer Temple are happy to announce we are getting really close to opening our 2nd Carolina Beer Temple location in the Ayrsley shopping center in the Steele Creek part of Charlotte! Like Carolina Beer Temple in Matthews, we will be a premier craft beer store with a craft beer bar specializing in North Carolina craft beers, Belgian ales and more!
At Carolina Beer Temple it is our goal to take your craft beer experience to a new level! We take pride in every beer we serve! We serve our beers in either proper glassware or a Belgian style glass which always improves a craft beer experience, out of clean lines and into clean glassware. We specialize in beers crafted locally and our tap list changes almost every day so we can bring a new beer for you to try every day! We also specialize in Belgian Ales – some of the finest and most highly rated beers in the world!
Here are some answers to some frequently asked questions:
When will you be open?
Our goal is to open sometime in December 2016, but absolutely no later than January 2017!
What will your hours be?
We will be open 7 days a week from 12PM-11PM, except Sundays we will close at 10PM
Where exactly are you located?
We’re at 217 Ayrsely Town Blvs. Suite 101-B. We’re behind Harry’s Tavern & Grill, next door to Rooney’s Market, beside Portofino’s and across the lot from Piedmont Social House.
How many taps will you have?
We will have 26 taps. Like our flagship shop in Matthews we will feature craft beers made in the Carolina’s, but we will also feature 4 taps dedicated to Belgian beers, 1 tap dedicated to cider and 1 tap dedicated to mead. We will also offer a selection of hard to find international beers on tap as well!
How many beer will you stock?

We plan to follow a similar schedule to our store in Matthews. Expect Tap Takeovers on Thursdays, Belgian flights on Wednesdays, a Run Club and even a Yoga club!

Yes! Outside food is always welcome at Carolina Beer Temple – keep us out of the kitchen! We’ve got some great neighbors, like Rooney’s Market, Portofino’s Italian Restaurant, Harry’s Tavern, Piedmont Social House and many more from which you can grab a To-Go order and bring it in while you enjoy your beer!
Do you have a patio?
Yes! We have outdoor seating – and more than we do at our original location!
Will you fill growlers?
Yes! All of our taps will be available for growler fills (with a few rare exceptions from time-to-time)!

We plan to offer a small selection of wine by the glass either when we open or soon thereafter. We will not offer wine to-go (please visit our neighbors at Rooney’s Market for a selection of wines to go).
