The words I am currently typing have been long awaited and much anticipated (by myself and my neighbors). Heist Brewery and Barrell Arts has opened!!! Located at 1030 Woodward Avenue, nestled behind the (fairly) new Double Oaks Pool and a block away from Camp North End, sits this amazing new area hot spot. It is vast in both its indoor square footage, very cool beer garden, and parking which gives it many attributes that make for an appealing hang out location.
Owned and operated by the same folks as Charlotte’s OG brewery, Heist, the Barrell Arts location does not disappoint on its offerings. Having officially opened on February 21, the location has wasted little time in bringing on the fun and events to the area. They have already held: a grand opening party, ACC game watches, animal adoption events, a can release, and organized a great calendar of weekly and larger upcoming events.
Already scheduled is something every…
Day/Evening is a food truck! Eventually the location will have its own full kitchen (fingers crossed for another amazing BRUNCH buffet!!!) but for now there is a great rotation of trucks and snacks available behind the bar (crunchy Cheetos are all I had eyes for).
Monday at 6:30 pm, starting on March 25th, will be the Heist Brewery Run Club. The initial run will also be a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society with raffle tickets and $1 donated from every beer sold.
Tuesday night at 6:30 pm, one can enjoy some yoga and a beer. Then, you are going to say, “namaste” (sorry, I had to) because trivia starts at 7:30 pm.
Wednesday night at Live Music night where they will feature a local artist either in the taproom or out in the beer garden.
An additional event to keep on your radar is Friday, May 3 1pm-11pm for the Official Unofficial Untapped Pregame that is being held to kickoff first ever Untappd Festival at Bank of America Stadium.
