South End’s newest brewery brings taco, coffee concepts

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Resident Culture Brewing Co. is ready to tap into South End.

The brewery’s second Charlotte location marked its grand opening on Jan. 7. That spot at 332 W. Bland St. also features taco concept El Toro Bruto, with a coffee bar still to come.

The former 1920s bus maintenance facility in South End’s Gold District has been transformed. The result captures Resident Culture’s personality, which celebrates arts, culture and originality, while still honoring the building’s history, says Amanda McLamb.

“We weren’t looking for the next place. We were looking for the right home for the next place,” she says.

She, husband Phillip McLamb and Chris Tropeano — also head brewer — are behind that venture.
