Pinhouse, a pour-your-own bar with duckpin bowling and 72 self-serve taps, is coming soon to Plaza Midwood.

January 23, 2019 – iPourIt increases its lead in the market with the installation of a 72-tap self-serve tap system using its technology to offer a unique tasting experience at Pinhouse in Charlotte, N.C.

Rich Moyer and Drew Nesemeier, owners of Hoppin’ in Charlotte, are launching their second self-serve bar using iPourIt beverage dispense technology in Plaza Midwood. Plaza Midwood is an up-and-coming trendy neighborhood known for its nightlife and music venues. Patrons can expect a warm atmosphere with an old-school bowling alley look designed by Vignette Interior Design; the same designer of Hoppin’. Pinhouse will offer something for everyone with a huge selection of local and national craft beer, wine, prosecco, cider, kombucha, and spirits, as well as duckpin bowling. Similar to Hoppin’, Pinhouse will also offer a permanent food truck for patrons to enjoy.

Rich and Drew opened Hoppin’ in December 2017, bringing the first self-serve taproom to Charlotte. After seeing tremendous success with the self-serve concept and iPourIt technology, the two entrepreneurs decided to open a new location with a similar concept and the addition of bowling. Charlotte is craft-beer-centric with new breweries opening every month. Rich and Drew recognize and share the love of craft beer, and their businesses give patrons total control over their drinking experience. The pour-your-own concept allows customers to make their own buying and pricing decisions, pour their own beverage, avoid long bar lines, and try a specialized offering of their choosing without having to purchase an entire pint.

“With over three million ounces poured in a year’s time and receiving several awards, Hoppin’ is a great example of best practice within the self-serve market. Rich and Drew know how to properly implement the self-serve concept to improve their operations, increase profits, and enhance the patron’s experience. We are very excited to continue this journey with the opening of Pinhouse”

– Darren Nicholson, Vice President of iPourIt

Pinhouse expects to open mid-April.
