A venture dedicated to American manufactured home goods and soda is up and running in the Church Hill area.
Roaring Pines, a soda counter and shop that sells everything from boomerangs to mop buckets, opened this month at 2025 Venable St. as an extension of the online retail and web development company owner Drew Dayberry launched in 2014.
Its soda counter has six taps and pours flavors like black cherry, ginger and root beer, drinking vinegars with harder to find flavors like black pepper and Thai basil, and cold brew coffee. Patrons can drink at the bar or take their drinks to go.
“We’re just a neighborhood corner store at this point,” Dayberry said. “It’s kind of an old-fashioned model.”
Dayberrry said the shop has been well-received by the neighborhood. He said he has sold about 50 brooms since opening. It has more than 200 different products for sale.
Dayberry said a soft serve ice cream machine is on its way to the shop and he’ll open the patio once the weather warms up.
Roaring Pines’ 1,200-square-foot space is on the ground floor of a property renovated by UrbanCore Development, with apartments above it.
