Located at 195 N. Trade St. in downtown Matthews, Carolina Beer Temple is a craft beer store with a craft beer bar. We are fiercely dedicated to only carrying beers made by breweries that are independently owned.  At Carolina Beer Temple, you can shop for great craft beers to take home or sit and enjoy a fresh beer from one of our twenty six constantly rotating taps.

In support of the exciting craft brewing scene taking place in North Carolina, Carolina Beer Temple strives to have the best selection of craft beers made in North Carolina- we also carry a fantastic selection of craft beers from across the country, Belgian ales and many great international brews beyond Belgium.

We also carry a large selection of meads, as well as some ciders.

While our selection of beers is constantly growing and changing, we specialize in featuring many rare and hard-to-find brews from around North Carolina, across the country and around the world.

The Carolina Beer Temple Story!

While traveling through Belgium, seeking out some of the finest beers made in the world, owners of Carolina Beer Temple – Rob and Megan Jacik – learned that 96% of all beer consumed in Belgium is brewed in Belgium. Rob and Megan were impressed with Belgium’s amazing beer culture and devotion to locally brewed beer. Back home, with 80+ breweries currently in operation in North Carolina (as of January 2014), Rob and Megan thought it would be fantastic if North Carolina embraced its beer industry in much the same way as Belgium.

To contribute to this spirit of consuming fresh, quality local beers, Carolina Beer Temple was born – a retail craft beer store that specializes in beers made in North Carolina. While a consumption rate of 96% is a lofty goal, Carolina Beer Temple intends to be part of the tidal wave of change already occurring, where more and more residents of North Carolina seek out and drink beers made in the Carolinas.

With the success of the original Carolina Beer Temple during its first few years in business we’ve since expanded, making downtown Matthews a craft beer destination. We opened Carolina Beer Temple in Charlotte at the Town of Ayrsley shopping center in 2017.

We hope you will visit each of our locations for a fantastic craft beer (or wine or cider or mead) drinking experience! At the Carolina Beer Temple Family of Businesses we do craft beer better than anyone else!
