The Olde Mecklenburg Brewery
Fresh beer is just better beer — that’s why at Olde Mecklenburg, they believe that all beer should be made local. Not only that, but Olde Meck beers are made with only 4 ingredients: water, malt, hops, and yeast. Just like with baking bread, less is more.
NoDa Brewing Company
Founded on a culture of homebrewing, NoDa’s founders approach every bath the same way — whether it’s a small-batch novelty or a year-round brew. Watch for new releases every Tuesday! Sample one of their year-round brews like Jam Session, an Ameican IPA, or one a seasonal brew like Gordgeous, a well-balanced pumpkin ale.
Birdsong Brewing Company
Co-founder Chris Goulet started Birdsong Brewing in 2010 because he thought Charlotte needed a small neighborhood brewery where locals could stop by for a fresh pint, and take a growler home for later. Use their beer finder to see where your favorite craft brews are on tap in the Matthews area.
