CHARLOTTE, N.C. - NoDa recently gained another spot for craft beer with the addition of Wooden Robot Brewery’s second facility in the Queen City.
The brewery, based in South End, quietly opened the space at 416 E. 36th St. last week and is holding a grand-opening event Saturday. Rather than producing beer at the new location, which is directly adjacent to the Lynx Blue Line’s 36th Street Station, it serves as the central hub for Wooden Robot’s barrel-aging program, complete with a taproom, large outdoor patio and rooftop biergarten.
The Chamber by Wooden Robot Brewery is a retail component of the Novel NoDa project, with other nearby tenants including Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams, Idlewild cocktail bar and Rush Bowls. Upfits to the building have been ongoing since mid-February.
“We’ll actually have a better variety here than we do at South End just because we have more draft lines,” said Josh Patton, who co-founded Wooden Robot with Dan Wade. “We’ll have a little bit of everything. We’ll still have the core beers ... we’re really focusing on the Belgian-inspired farmhouse, funky saison, sour beers here.”
