Sandwich shop to open axe-throwing and craft beer facility

A sandwich shop in West Virginia is set to open ‘Axes and Ales’ this month, a new facility comprising five axe-throwing courts and a bar.

As reported by WSAZ News, a sandwich shop and deli in West Virginia is to open not one, but five axe-throwing courts where people can also buy locally-brewed craft beer and wine.

The Lucky Dill Deli on Capitol Street in Charleston told the news site that the range is due to open on 14 December.

Speaking to WSAZ, owner Chadrick Harper said: “I’d love to bring more foot traffic to Capitol Street. Anytime you have something different, people’s going to want to try it.”

Aside from the five axe-throwing courts, the facility will also include an area where people can buy and drink craft beer and wine.

Harper, however, was adamant that the new venture was not a recipe for disaster.

“We’re here to have fun, but we’re also here to be safe,” he said.

Potential axe-throwers, and indeed beer drinkers in the US, must be 21 years of age. Before entering a court, participants go through safety training. A projector, which displays the target, also tells people when to throw and when to pull their axe off the target, to ensure no-one is injured.

The courts are separated by Plexiglas dividers, a shatter-proof alternative to glass, to guard against wayward axes. It will cost $40 for a one-hour session, with one court hosting four players.
