Craft Brewery Craze: Charlotte Edition

Some of the best-kept secrets in craft brews are local labels that can actually be found in your own city! We’ve decided to loop you in and provide the 411 on some of the best hidden gems in Charlotte, NC to kick off our Brewery Series…

  • Lenny Boy Brewing Company: Want more than a drink? Stop by the Lenny Boy Brewing Company where culture comes first and the beer is certified organic. Not only will you be surrounded by an endless selection of beverage selections ranging from Beer to Kombucha, but also weekly art shows, food trucks, fitness events and so much more. While you enjoy the experience, make sure to try Lenny Boy’s “Dat Pale American Pale Ale” (we dare you to try and say that 10 times fast!).
  • Legion Brewing: Whether you are shopping the high-end retail of Southpark or moseying down the eclectic streets of Plaza Midwood, you can’t help but notice the legion of love coming from our friends at Legion Brewing. If you’re not going for the fan favorite, Juicy Jay IPA, then check out these other go-to’s: the citrus filled Orange Chick Saison Farmhouse Ale and the feisty “Bite Me” American Amber Ale, all brewed in house.
  • Heist Brewery: Last but certainly not least, Heist has stolen the Queen City’s heart since its opening in 2012. Heist is officially Charlotte’s only Craft Brewpub. Starting small out of a 10HL German brewhouse, they have shown exceptional growth and have now added a 30 barrel production facility!  Heist focuses on small-batch beer ranging from traditional Hazy Belgian Table Beers and Saisons to IPA’s and Double IPA’s. You’ll also find some very solid Porters and Imperial Stouts. If you prefer to mix things up, there’s an extensive Craft Cocktail program with over 100 whiskeys, as well. Heist is the go-to brunch locale with wood-fired specialties and signature home brewed beers like their “Zeal of Approval” pineapple infused IPA.

No matter what hidden gem you choose to visit, continue to support small businesses and invest where you nest!
