Our Story

We believe the best ideas are born over a pint…

Since 1999, our founder, Papa Lou, had a vision for a sports bar. A neighborhood place rooted in the community serving incredible, fresh housemade food, a ton of cold beers, and so many TVs you could watch three games at once. All in an energetic atmosphere full of high fives, smiling faces, and the friendly, Carolina spirit of hospitality.

The Carolina Ale House team is committed to the universal principle of taking extra special care of you, our guest. Whether it is turning the channel to your game, preparing your order exactly the way you like it or simply giving you a high five after your team wins the game. We call that the Ale Yeah!® Attitude!

Papa Lou also strongly believes in giving back to the community which supports our passion. Through regular fundraisers, sponsorship of local sports teams of all ages, donations of food, time and funds to a variety of charitable causes, we take immense pride in being a respected community partner. We say THANKS for choosing us today and we look forward to taking care of you… Ale Yeah!®
