Olde Mecklenburg Brewery Craft Beer

Olde Mecklenburg Brewery

The Olde Mecklenburg Brewery (OMB), located in the heart of south Charlotte, produces premium, all natural beer and delivers it fresh weekly to bars, restaurants and retailers in the region. OMB uses only the finest ingredients available worldwide and employs traditional, intensive brewing methods to transform them into world class beer that’s full-flavored yet amazingly refreshing. Although our methods are more costly, we think you’ll agree the results are worth it. Look for OMB on tap throughout the Charlotte region, in growler bottles at your local retailer or just come straight to the brewery and taste the difference.

Sugar Creek Brewing Co.

Bringing Belgian-inspired beer to the Carolinas and beyond,  Sugar Creek Brewing Company combines the watchful eye of a Trappist Monk with the technical precision of nuclear engineering to craft fresh, full-flavored  beers that are immensely satisfying and intensely drinkable.

Three Spirits Brewery

At Three Spirits we make what I like to call "comfort" beers. Beers that are easy to drink, moderate in alcohol content, and high in flavor, just like your favorite "comfort" foods.

So why are the beers a bit hazy, like a typical wheat? We choose not to filter our beers. Filters are great, except that they don't just remove the bad components of beer; they also remove some of the good as they remove anything that does not fit through their screen threshold. At Three Spirits, we choose to use gravity as our only filter after the whirlpool. All of the beers are previously unfiltered homebrews that people loved. Therefore, we decided to keep that philosophy in the brewery and produce beers as close to their prototypes as possible. So again, what is that haze, flavor!

Our aim at Sycamore Brewing is simple: use the freshest ingredients possible and brew all-natural, extraordinarily tasty craft beer.

If you love good beer as much as we do, we hope you'll enjoy a pint of our craft beer.

BirdSong Craft Beer at the BeerMe Beer Festival

Bird Song Brewing Company

Birdsong was founded in 2011 with a quest for better beer and a 5-gallon soup kettle. Our vision is similar to many of our favorite craft brewing mentors who have inspired us to open our own brewery: we strive to brew flavorful, unfiltered, quality craft beers for distribution in the Charlotte, NC.

We are located in NoDa at 26th & North Davidson. Our goal is to create outstanding beer, to have a low impact on the environment, and to create personal relationships and ties to the local community.

Our inspiration comes from the popular and innovative styles of the West Coast brewers and is fueled by brewerr's passion and ability to construct unique yet sessionable recipes. We're excited to add to the growing craft beer movement in Charlotte and the Carolinas.

Primal Brewery

Primal Brewery can trace its’ roots to the sidelines of a Huntersville soccer field that Co-founders, Ray Steimel and David Hoy first met on… We were home brewers, who not only enjoyed the process of brewing but also the overall experience. Our home brewing sessions were always a gathering of friends, family, and neighbors. For us it’s always been about the experience of bringing people together and having a good time with great beer and good food. At our core this is the underlying belief that influences every decision we make at Primal Brewery.

Olde Hickory Brewery

Great beer is the result of meticulous attention to detail throughout the brewing process. Our beers begin their life as fresh water that flows from the granite slopes of the Blue Ridge and culminate in small batches.

Our beers are and have always been, brewed using only select gains, robust hops and cultured yeast, with no additives or preservatives.

These basic ingredients are added with time, passion & the undying thirst for knowledge to produce our quality brews that we're sure you'll enjoy!

Highland Craft Beer @ BeerMe Beer Festival Charlotte

Highland Brewing Company

Asheville's first (legal) brewery! To achieve our goals it takes great beer, made consistently, and more... It takes caring about how the beer is made, for the people involved, and for the beautiful area in which we live, brew, hike, paddle and pedal. Operating within these lines gives rise to a culture around a product. A culture that is sustainable for our employees, our customers and the environment.

ASHEVILLE, NC Gaelic Daycation IPA

Catawba Brewing Company

Western NC's only family owned/operated brewery is 15 years old. Now open in two locations: Asheville and Morganton, NC.

When Billy opened the box he said “what is it, a pickle jar?”.   Of course it was a carboy, the fermentation vessel of the homebrewer.  That Christmas in 1994 started the journey that would become Catawba Brewing Company.

Our belief in that drives us to make beer for the people. We strive to brew not only what the people want, but what will tantalize them to experience something new. We will always push to be better brewers, brew better beer, and inspire our patrons to fall in love with every pint.

Lone Rider Brewing

You can sense it before he sets foot in the room and it lingers long after he's gone. Tight-lipped and stoic, this man isn't impressed with fads or trends. He prefers beers that are more like himself—serious, strong, and uncompromising. Beers like Lonerider. Let other brands cater to the whims of the crowd. Lonerider answers to the man who isn't afraid to drink like an individual, to the outlaw in all of us.

Bold Rock Cider

BE BOLD.
TREAD LIGHTLY.
MAKE IT HAPPEN.

Building a new cider company from the ground up with a vision for hard cider to regain its rightful place as the #1 alcoholic beverage in America—that’s bold.

Using reclaimed materials in our new construction, giving apple pomace left after juicing to a local pig farmer, and raising money for the Rockfish Valley Foundation are some of the ways that we tread lightly.
