When Heaven and Ale was located at 304 Cherokee Blvd. it was “a staple” in the North Shore neighborhood, said Bryan Hunter Hart, who also owns Brewhaus Restaurant on Frazier Avenue. He told the beer board that when he heard Heaven and Ale was moving to the Southside, he felt a bar should continue at that location so he has taken it over. The new name will be Leroy’s, after his father’s nickname. Peanuts and pork rinds will be served with the beer. Menus from nearby restaurants will be available and “runners” from Leroy’s will deliver food that is ordered to customers in the bar.
Mahoney’s Grub House, 8701 E.
Brainerd Road, was also approved Thursday for a new beer license due to a name and ownership change. This is the former location of “The Great American Filling Station.” Owner Robert Adamezyk said the space is being remodeled and there will be a different menu from the old restaurant.
El Sol Supermercado, 1911 Watauga St., was approved by the beer board for a carryout beer permit. And Akbar Bhamani was approved for a carry-out beer license at two locations of his convenience stores, Hop In & Out. These will join three other locations that were given beer licenses at the beer board meeting on Sept. 19.
