Meet friends from the area here for a drink before dinner. Very good beer and soft pretzels. There wasn't much going on when we were there on a Friday evening, but our friends said it is really hopping on the weekends. The doorman at our hotel also highly recommended it.

We went for the brewery tour and spent most the afternoon hanging out drinking beer, playing corn hole and eating delicious food. This is a great option to spend an afternoon with friends.

We were a group of 4 people and we came for a beer and a light dinner. The place is nice and has a great atmosphere. However, the beers I tasted were only okay - nothing extraordinary. As a beer-lover, I was hoping for a better experience from such a microbrewery. The beer is lacking in taste as it is... More

We stopped by on a Sunday afternoon to take a tour on our last day in town. The place was very crowded with families, couples, and groups of friends. The atmosphere was lively and fun. My husband enjoyed a few of the good German craft beers, and we took a tour of the operations. There were fire pits in the... More

Visited this brewery while on work travel. I happened to be stranded in Charlotte overnight so wanted to visit a local brewery. Very pleasantly surprised! Extremely good beer, excellent German food and cool ambience inside. I am betting the biergarten out back is a blast in the spring and summer! If I'm ever in Charlotte again I'll definitely be back!

The parking lot was packed. That usually tells you that it must be a good/fun place. It was confirmed. We had a very fun experience, indeed. We would LOVE to go back sometime soon to take the tour. It was open on New Year's Eve for food and bev, but no tours were given on the day we went. The... More

This place is huge! It wasn't very busy while we were there but I can imagine when it is packed it is a live and loud place. The outside seating area is huge and beautifully done. Had 4 or 5 beers on tap that they brew in-house and about that many wines on the drink menu...the Copper beer I had... More

Nice attempt to bring a Bavarian Bierhaus to NC. Traditional seating indoors and out. Traditional Bavarian style bier, there were 6 on tap. Menu sufficient enough to meet most tastes. Remember, this is a brewery and not a Bavarian restaurant. The menu is more extensive and diverse than a traditional bierhaus, but you won't find schnitzels, sauerbraten etc. We really... More

We visited on a Saturday afternoon. The place was packed. We immediately got a beer and got on the tour of the brewery. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour, the tour guide was pretty fun and gave us tastes of the beer during the brewing process. The beers we had were very good, I don't think there were any we didn't...
