The food is fantastic, I highly recommend the brat with curry ketchup. The beer is great. But, the atmosphere is absolutely fantastic it's like a German beer hall.

Dropped in for the early afternoon tour . Sampled the beer several different kinds got a flight so I could try them all. Fat boy and captain jack tied for first. Short tour very informative they seem to strive for quality. Then hung around for another beer and some conversation with a local great afternoon.

This is a wonderful place with great beer and snacks and a very decent blues band. Just perfect for that late sunny afternoon relaxation fix. There are games, a field to play in, a food truck, several kiosks to get your beer... And there is a grand inside that I just glanced on the way to...well it's a beer garden!... More

Tour was casual and longer than advertised. Dinner was fast food caliber. Service was lacking. Beer was OK, wine was limited. Disappointed with experience as we were expecting more from a name connected with Mecklenburg and Charlotte.

With the weather being what it is we were able to use the outside seating area which can hold hundreds of people. There were umbrellas for shade, corn hole, beer trucks, and food trucks all at your fingertips. I highly recommend for a great time oh and I don't drink alcohol but still had a great time so don't hesitate... More

Friendly Staff, great atmosphere. Excellent Beer, food is typical German Style just there to accompany the beer. Outside seating area great for families with young children. Live music. Wonderful relaxing Saturday afternoon.

We had the beer at a local tavern prompting us to visit the brewery. The bar/restaurant reminded us of a german beer hall but American style. The beer was great and purchased a case to go. The Brewery serves traditional bar food. We were disappointed with the service. We entered through the back entrance and a waitress said it was... More

This place is a lot of fun. In addition to lots of great beer the outdoor area is nice. There is corn hole also. It's a nice way to spend an afternoon.

Stopped here to eat before the race on May 29th. The food was ok but the beer was awesome. Service was a little inattentive and slow. However, wishing it was closer to home and would visit there again if ever we again get to Charlotte.
