First Street Tavern, a concept that has been in the works for years. Dave Schearer, founder & operator, has been developing this plan for quite some time.. Seeing other bottle shops, wine spots and working in the industry has helped make First Street Tavern what it is today. The Southern Tradition House, as it is known in Clayton, is a historical home in Downtown Clayton. Built in 1912 it has so much charm and history that it made for the perfect fit for First Street Tavern. A comfortable setting to enjoy a glass of wine, a cold beer or a smooth glass of bourbon. Our "Never Leave a Stranger" motto just describes who we are. When you take the time to come see us we will take the time to know who you are and you will never walk out of our doors a stranger to us.

Meet Dave

Dave Schearer

I started working in the restaurant business 24 years ago. I have been a Kitchen Manager, Bar Manager, General Manager & Regional Manager but always wanted ownership. I came to a point in my career that it was now or never. Two young children, Emmi & Jackson, and a beautiful and talented wife, Courtney, it became clear to me that it was time to lay all the chips on the table and take a leap of faith. I believe that if you never leap you will never know your full potential as a man. "As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates other"

Our Beer

Here at First Street Tavern we’re all about the love of beer. New and bold flavors enter our doors every week, and we can’t help but show them off. While we enjoy the classics, we’re always passionate about discovering something new, so stop by and experience our craft at its best.

We offer rotating taps and 20 or more bottles of local favorites and seasonal brews. Call or come by to see what our newest flavors are!

Our Bourbon

Many of life’s great pleasures are acquired tastes and worth the pursuit. For many, whiskey is just as much an adventure as it is a drink. It invites you to explore and indulge in its diversity. Each country traditionally produces its own style of whiskey, but even within that style there is an incredible range of whiskeys to choose from.
