Earlier this year, it was announced that Elevation Church planned to purchase the shopping center that housed its Matthews campus.
That shopping center was also home to Custom Home Pubs, a bar with a small bottle shop and an assortment of home bar necessities like kegerators and CO2 tanks. Founder Geoff Goss quickly had to look for a new location.
He found that a few miles north at 1640 Sardis Rd. N., in the Galleria Shopping Center off of Independence Boulevard. It was the second move for founder Goss, who opened the store in SouthPark before moving it to Matthews years ago. His new location will have a dozen taps (up from eight), a slightly-larger bottle selection, lots of local brewery memorabilia (t-shirts, stickers, hats, glassware, etc.) and the bar from Sankey’s, the restaurant that Goss operated beside Custom Home Pubs.
There will be no food served at Custom Home Pubs, however Goss said customers can have food from nearby Boardwalk Billy’s delivered to the bar.
The bar will hold a grand opening celebration on Thursday, July 2 from 6-9 p.m. The taps will be pouring “rare Charlotte draft beers,” and attendees can enjoy unlimited samples for $20 (with $10 going back to The King’s Kitchen, which is supplying food for the event).
Unlike the bar’s popular monthly tastings, this event does require that you pre-purchase a ticket by calling 704-315-5223 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
