Pennsport is getting a new sports bar and restaurant this spring.

Heather and Cosimo Tricarico own Pennsport Beer Boutique as well as Italian BYO Caffe Valentino at Wharton Street and East Moyamensing Avenue.  They’ll open Charlie’s — named for the late, beloved Doberman who served as mascot and unofficial bouncer for the beer garden-slash-bottle shop — as an extension of Pennsport Beer Boutique, adding an entrance next to Herman’s Coffee.

Charlie’s will feature several large televisions and offer a pub-style menu. It’ll serve lunch, dinner, and brunch along with the 600-plus beers on offer at the bottle shop and imported Italian gelati.

The Tricarios are shooting to open by May 1st.
