Wooden Robot Brewery opening barrel-ageing facility in NoDa district

Wooden Robot Brewery is prepping for a busy 2019. The Charlotte brewery will expand with a second location in NoDa — known as The 36th Chamber by Wooden Robot. It also plans to grow its South End footprint, says Josh Patton, co-founder. Patton recently shared those plans with the Charlotte Business Journal. He and Dan Wade — friends since middle school — opened the original Wooden Robot location at 1440 S. Tryon St. in July 2015. Construction on the NoDa space is set to begin in mid-January, with a roughly three-month upfit expected.

That puts a potential opening this spring, Patton adds.

“We want it to be recognizable as an extension of Wooden Robot,” Patton says. “But we are hoping to reach out to a different clientele a little bit.”

The 36th Chamber name is a nod to plans to cellar and age beer at the facility — as well as the classic Wu-Tang Clan album, 36 Chambers, and its location on 36th Street.
