I know, I know breweries are perhaps the most basic Charlotte thing ever. But they are popular for a reason. If beer isn't your thing Kings Mountain is home to a good winery and the Yadkin Valley is just a short drive away.

These self-pour bars are my favorite. This gives me the option to try a little bit of everything. South Charlotte is getting its own self-pour beer and wine bar.

Many self-pour places use an iPourIt tap system. This is what tracks your pours and charges per ounce on those fun little bands. This will be the case for a new fun craft beer and wine bar opening in South Charlotte. Near Pineville-Matthews Road on Carmel Center Drive, OpenTap will open. There will be 64 beers on tap and a treehouse mezzanine, as well as a shade garden and a village green. You can check it out in their Instagram post below.

There will be many beers and wines to choose from in this bar. OpenTap will be opening at 5010 Carmel Ctr Dr, Charlotte, NC 28226. I can’t wait to try it out!
