The team at Sycamore Brewing released new details Tuesday that give a peek at the expansive 10,000-square-foot space they plan to open in South End this May.
According to a Tuesday release, the taproom will span two stories with a 6,000-square-foot second-floor patio and bar overlooking Charlotte’s Rail Trail and the Uptown skyline. On the ground level, Sycamore visitors can expect a beer garden, a full-service taproom with food offerings and the brewery’s new coffee shop.
Sycamore’s custom-built Airstream food truck will also be stationed upstairs as a nod to the original taproom space that was located across the street and closed in October 2022.
Sycamore Brewing owner Sarah Brigham said she hopes for the new location to be more than just a space to get drinks.
“Our bigger and better taproom has so much more to offer our customers including regular weekly specials, unique events and our new coffee shop,” she wrote in Tuesday’s release. “Its free-spirited aesthetic exudes a welcoming and laid-back vibe, and we look forward to welcoming everyone very soon.”
Sycamore’s new coffee shop, aptly titled Sycamore Café, will serve house-brewed coffee, a selection of house-made cookies and pastries supplied by community bakers and chefs.
“We started to house-roast small batches of our own coffee to add to select coffee beers, and we fell in love with the house-made cold-brew coffee that went on tap at our production facility,” continued Brigham. “After perfecting our roasting process, we knew we had to make coffee a part of the new taproom and that’s how Sycamore coffee was born.”
Along with coffee and beer, the taproom will serve frozé, cider, a curated wine list, cocktails on tap (some coffee-inspired), boozy popsicles and beer floats with soft-serve ice cream.
Sycamore’s full food menu will include pairings with featured beverages each week. Grab-n-go breakfast, lunch and dinner options will be available at the coffee shop or in the beer garden daily, while brunch will be offered on weekends.
