I have wanted to include some breweries as part of my Southern Purveyor series and took a look around Charlotte. Charlotte has an amazing craft beer scene with at least 7 breweries and more coming all the time! I decided to do an off shoot project about the Charlotte breweries. This is the first one, The Olde Mecklenburg Brewery. This arguably, if not factually, the largest brewery in Charlotte and getting bigger. The brewery is getting ready to open up a new facility this year that will enable them to greatly increase their capacity. Their beer is awesome! It is “brewed using premium quality ingredients and comply strictly with the world famous German Beer Purity Law of 1516 (the “Reinheitsgebot”), which prohibits the use of inferior ingredients. Barley, hops, water and yeast. Nothing else.” They have a great brauhaus and host many events and have a party every time they release a new beer. If you have not been over for a fresh, local, awesome beer, I’d say get on it and grab one!
