Self-Serve alcohol is trending in Charlotte, and here's where you can find it

Posted by Amanda Erskine • Where To Drink

Here in Charlotte, we appreciate simplicity and efficiency. We opt to take Lime Scooters because they are quicker than walking, we love fast-food concepts like Yafo and Cava because we get to eat faster, and we LOVE self-serve alcohol.

While the self-serve concept has been around for a handful of years, with old friend, Fidelli Kitchen, introducing us to self-serve wine and even earlier that, TCBY introducing us to self-serve fro-yo, in the past year, we have seen a handful of businesses open up centered around the self-serve business model.

So far in the upcoming year, we are expecting to welcome at least 1 self-serve business, and it’s possible that this will be the newest growing trend for the Charlotte neighborhoods, as opposed to new brewery concepts, which have slowed down substantially in the past year. So where can you find self-serve alcohol?

-Hoppin’

The first self-serve tap concept to come to Charlotte by Two Scoops co-founder, Rich Moyer. Located in South End's Gold District on the same street as Bulldog Beer and Wine South End and Wooden Robot Brewery.

-The Pinhouse

Another one of Rich Moyer's businesses, this socail house is coming soon to South End, and will also include bowling and games.

-Pour

The country’s largest collection of taps with 118, located right here, in Plaza Midwood.

-Sabor South End

Taking over Fidelli Kitchen’s old location, they have kept the self-serve wine station for your utilization!
