The Carolina Beer Temple ~ Matthews, NC


The Carolina Beer Temple located at 131 Matthews Station St #1C, in Matthews, North Carolina is Beer and Bottle Shop with rotating taps of craft brews.  They also carry hundreds of cans and bottles of beers from around the world. 

Not only do they carry great beer, their knowledge of beer styles and varieties is unmatched in the area. In fact they are so good at what they do, they’ve opened 2 new locations to spread the word, including Temple Mojo (also in Matthews) and a 2nd Beer Temple in Ayrsley off S. Tryon in Charlotte.  Both locatuons, but we love the original is our favorite.

They are celebrating 4-years and because they know their Craft Beer, we have no doubt it is just the beginning.  #HappyBirthday! #FolksWeLove! #PlacesWeLove!

It’s called the Birds Fly South Ale Project because they look at each new beer they design as as ongoing project on their quest to design the perfect modern beer.

Located in Greenville, SC, (1320 Hampton Ave Ext), Birds Fly South is a fantastic brewery with an amazing taproom. They’re housed in a converted cotton warehouse and they specialise in old school farmhouse brewing.  We stopped in to briefly checkout their pet friendly taproom and stayed to enjoy live music, food trucks, and some great brews.

The Full Spectrum Brewing Company ~ Fort Mill, SC
