The Craft Stand ~ Lancaster, SC
We stopped in at The Craft Stand located at 134 S Main St, in Lancaster, South Carolina to meet up with its proprietors, Don & Brandy Geraghty. The much anticipated addition to the downtown area officially opens its doors on August 25th at noon with a Tap Takeover by Benford Brewing.
The Buzz at Bulldog Beer & Wine ~ Charlotte, NC
Bulldog Beer & Wine located at 2447 Park Rd in the Dilworth area of Charlotte is not your typical watering hole, but one step inside and it will keep you coming back time and again.
We first experienced this joint at a recent beer festival during craft beer month. They weren’t technically open, but the staff was on hand as well as the big boss (Rob) and their uber-friendly Bulldogs: No bark and all love.
The setup is like visiting your best friend’s converted garage. Almost a man-cave feeling going on here that includes a very large bar area. The bar itself probably seats 30 or so patrons and includes TVs to keep you constantly entertained. The seating area just off the bar is complete with whiskey barrel-styled tables and simple metal stools. You can’t fit a large group around a barrel, but a few folks can gather in small groups to sip on one or several of the rotating local craft brews they have on tap .
