Announcing Temple Mojo – Growler Shop, Craft Beer Bar, Bicycle Shop!

Carolina Beer Temple is proud to announce our new sister store, Temple Mojo – a craft beer bar, growler shop and bicycle shop located in the heart of historic downtown Matthews!!!

Temple_MOJO_Main2CWe’re partnering with our good friends at Mojo Cycles to enhance the existing bike shop format to include a craft beer bar and growler shop! We will be located at 195 North Trade Street in downtown Matthews!

TempleMojoFrontA Few Questions You May Be Pondering…

When will you be open? Still a few things to finish up…we will be open “some time” this summer!

What will your hours be? We plan to be open from 12-11PM every day, except Sundays we will close at 10PM. We are also considering being open early on Saturdays as we’re sure some early morning cyclists may want to stop in for a beer at the end of their ride.

How many taps will you have? We will have 26 taps!

Will all beers on tap be available for growler fills? Yes

I love Mojo Cycles, what is happening to the existing bike shop? Mojo Cycles is still open! Some bicycle inventory and accessories will still be available for sale inside Temple Mojo, but Mojo Cycles will be operating primarily out of the repair building immediately behind Temple Mojo.

Will you be selling retail craft beer products to go? Just growler fills. For all retail purchases, please visit Carolina Beer Temple just a short walk away (less than a 3 minute walk)

What kind of beer will you be offering? Temple Mojo will focus largely on local craft beer. We will most often feature beers that are not available in bottles or cans, so you can enjoy them at home.

Carolina Beer Temple is known for it’s fantastic Belgian ale selection, will Temple Mojo feature Belgian Ales on tap so I can fill my growler? Sorry, Temple Mojo will be focusing heavily on local craft beer and will not be offering Belgian ales on tap. However, we will have a solution for this in the near future – stay tuned for further announcements.

Will you fill anyone’s growler or just Temple Mojo branded growlers? Temple Mojo branded growlers (both 64oz and 32oz) will always be available to purchase for a small fee. However, you are welcome to bring in your growlers from other locations or breweries. We only ask that you take special care to ensure your growler is clean using appropriate sanitizers (no soaps) prior to asking us to fill it.  Temple Mojo will provide detailed cleaning instructions and supplies on site for purchase.

Will you be offering pints? Yes, Temple Mojo will be operating as a full craft beer bar. All of our beers available for growler fills will also be available for on-site consumption. We will have a full size bar with ample seating (even more seating than Carolina Beer Temple). Like Carolina Beer Temple, expect exceptionally clean, crisp, fresh beers on tap at all times, served in glassware appropriate for the beer style (when available).

Will you have outdoor seating? Yes – lots of it out front, out back and on the lawn!

Are You Hiring? Yes! Contact

Will You Be Offering Flights? Temple Mojo does not plan to offer flights at the beginning (this may change) – we encourage everyone to visit Carolina Beer Temple for flights on Sundays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Will you have Live Music? Yes – one of the advantages of Temple Mojo is that we will have more space to host live music – especially outside. We intend to have live music frequently at Temple Mojo.

Are your social media sites ready? Yes, please Like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter (@TempleMojo) and follow us on Instagram (TempleMojo).

Will you have food? Like Carolina Beer Temple we will have a small selection of sandwiches and snacks. Also like Carolina Beer Temple we encourage our patrons to bring in food from the local area restaurants. Just a short walk away are Sante, Cafe 157 and Moe’s Original BBQ. Primavera Pizza will deliver during all hours and of course just a little further down the road are the Royal Cafe & Creperie, Thai Taste, Beantown Tavern, Kristopher’s and Ming Fu!

How committed are you to craft beer? Like Carolina Beer Temple, Temple Mojo will focus strictly on true craft beer from independently owned breweries. We will not offer any products from the major domestic corporations or products disguised as craft beer.

We look forward to being your premier Growler Shop in Matthews and the southeast Charlotte area!
