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...

It might have been timing as they were moving into their new facility, which I heard is great. But they only had 3 beers on tap and while they were good, they were very straight forward. We left and went to some other more exciting breweries in Charlotte.

Visited the new brewery location on their first week of operation. The beer was as good as ever. This is one of my favorite microbreweries in the country - and I've visited many. In the new location they are now offering food....and that's where things went wrong. The food was overpriced, not very good and served in unbelievably small portions.... More

The beer was great. I would have tried the food, but I was saving room for more beer. I did try a pretzel and it was great. I'm looking forward to seeing the new facility.
