Crafted in the Carolinas
Pop the Top is a craft beer shop located in the historic South End district in Charlotte, NC. We offer and highlight amazing handpicked craft beer (and wine) of North and South Carolina as well as other regional products.
We believe that good craft beer is not just a commodity; it is a passion that begins from the ground up. These products are created by everyday people who followed their dreams of creating and selling their own beer or wine and are made with a genuine passion.
As owners, we strive to bring that same pride and passion to every aspect of our shop. From our local sourced chips and cookies to our custom made beer flight paddle boards and dog treats, we are truly proud to be a small business and to work with other small business in and around the area.
We are always available to chat or educate about craft beer, and the growing Charlotte area.
On a personal note, we have both lived in North Carolina for over 30 years and met during our senior year at NC State; GO PACK! Our logo is a tribute to our late black Labrador, Louie, who taught us how to slow down and enjoy the simpler things in life. Our shop is aimed at being patio pet-friendly and we hope you feel at home anytime you stop by.

"Pop the Top has a great selection and they really care about offering a great customer experience."
Whether it’s by light rail, bus, car, bike, or your own two feet via the Charlotte rail trail we are accessible by any mode of transportation that you choose!
The South End District is located on the southern outskirts of uptown Charlotte. We are at the corner of Camden Road and West Blvd and adjacent to the East/West Blvd light rail stop and approximately 1 mile from Bank of America stadium. The area is in the middle of a major development boom that will continue to build into a highly dense community with plenty of walkability and bicycling!
We know and love great beer. Our appreciation goes beyond personal preference to understanding the ground up process from envisioning to creating and distributing beer that is as unique as its brewer!
We also love a good Carolina-made wine and seek out the ‘best of the best’ when it comes to what the Carolinas have to offer. We are so proud to highlight our region and are excited to share our knowledge with you. We believe that treating the customer the way that we would like to be treated and beyond is the cornerstone to our business.
