Central House of Brews is set to open this fall in Middletown.

The new 4,000-square-foot business at 2213 Central Ave., next door to Combs BBQ, will be a sports bar with a focus on darts, according to co-owners and lifelong Middletown residents Bill Maupin and Kevin Frame, who said they have thrown darts together for several years.

It also will feature two pool tables on which to play the game free of charge.

"We're reserving a space for a kitchen for future use," said Maupin, who has owned The WELL at 4371 Dixie Highway in Middletown for nearly six years. "We'll also have the largest walk-in cooler for a bar in Middletown with all beers on display.

So what made the two friends want to open Central House of Brews in the first place?

“There are no bars in Middletown large enough to hold dart tournaments,” Maupin said. “We’re fixing that.”
