Southern Pines Brewing to open taproom in downtown Fayetteville – The Fayetteville Observer

One of the area’s most prominent craft breweries is planning to open a taproom in downtown Fayetteville. 
Southern Pines Brewing Co., which operates a production brewery and downtown taproom in Southern Pines, is planning on purchasing and revitalizing 123 Hay St. with the goal of turning the building into a taproom serving beer, wine and cider. 
Plans for the taproom are detailed in a special use permit application filed with the city of Fayetteville. The application is set to be addressed at the City Council’s Monday meeting. 
The proposed taproom will be similar to the one Southern Pines Brewing runs at 205 W. Pennsylvania Ave. in downtown Southern Pines. No brewing is done at either taproom — all the beer is produced at the company’s brewery on Air Tool Drive on the outskirts of downtown Southern Pines.

The Hay Street location will serve light snacks, in order to comply with state ABC laws, but will encourage guests to bring outside food. Beer will also be sold to-go for off-site consumption. The taproom will not sell liquor.
According to the permit application, Southern Pines Brewing plans to purchase the Hay Street building and make structural repairs to stabilize the building and its façade, “preserving the building’s character, historic, architectural, and aesthetic features and further preserving the City’s heritage.”
Brewery ownership did not immediately return a request for comment on their plans for the Hay Street space.
Southern Pines Brewing has to apply for a special use permit in order to move forward with the taproom because the location is within 500 feet of a school, which is not allowed, according to the city’s Unified Development Ordinance. The proposed taproom would also be within 800 feet of a pair of churches. 
In the proposal, Southern Pines Brewing said Capitol Encore Academy, located almost directly across the street at 126 Hay St., does not oppose the taproom and will provide the city a letter of support in favor of the taproom project. 
The renovation work will be done by Critical Path Solutions, of Fayetteville. 
The taproom plans to be open from noon to 10 p.m. Monday to Wednesday; noon to 11 p.m. on Thursday; 11 a.m. to midnight on Friday and Saturday and from noon to 10 p.m. on Sunday. 
After serving together with the 3rd Special Forces Group at Fort Bragg, co-owners Micah Niebauer, John Brumer and Jason Ginos started Southern Pines Brewing Co. in 2014. They opened the downtown Southern Pines taproom in 2020.
