Local Craft Beers

Eleven Lakes Brewing

The Catawba River flows from the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina to the coastal plains of South Carolina. The eleven major lakes that form along the way provide an unparalleled source of life, growth, energy, and recreation to the people of the Catawba Basin. At Eleven Lakes Brewing Company, the mission is to brew exceptional craft beer in hopes of providing opportunities to bring others together in a celebration of life and community.

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.

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.

Regional Craft Beers

Wicked Weed Brewing

Craft beer is, by nature, an expression of the people.

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. We are committed to letting the wildness of beer, the nonconformance of craft, and the conviction of creativity lead.

We are blessed to do something we love.

Devils Backbone Brewing Co

We take inspiration from the classic brewing traditions of Germany, England, and Belgium as well as our peers in the craft brewing industry who bring vibrant new flavors and ideas to the world of beer. We have the ability to utilize traditional ingredients and processes for classically inspired beers as well as the flexibility to use unconventional techniques and ingredients for more eclectic brews, we love to do both.


Rusty Bull Brewing Company

We love to make good beer. We are excited that our beery dream has come true, and appreciate everyone who has helped make it possible.

We like our beers to focus on being themselves. You have to raise them up that way, so they have a sense of individualism, in a world filled with categories and those who would "pigeon hole" them. Sure, they'll come across others that seem to resemble some of their characteristics, but in the end it's all about getting to let it all hang out.

Sierra Nevada Brewing Co

Ken set out with a simple goal: brew the beers he wanted to drink. He started small, with a homebrew shop, a love of American hops and plenty of passion. In the process, he changed the beer world forever. Decades later, he's still at it, and the passion burns brighter than ever.



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.

When confronted with two options, you always have a choice. A choice between quality, artisanal products and the mass-produced. A choice between dedication to an age-old process and cutting corners. A choice between beverages made with real, farm-fresh products and others created with the artificial



Bold Rock Cider


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.
