The History And Growth Of Charlotte's Beer Scene


Friday, September 26, 2014



Something started happening in Charlotte a few years ago that continued to brew and bubble and is now reaching a head: beer. But not any beer- beer crafted, brewed, served and enjoyed right here in the Queen City. Every few months, new breweries are opening or moving into larger spaces.  Craft beer is taking off, creating a new culture in the process. We talk about how we got here and what's ahead in a special program recorded at Olde Mecklenburg Brewery.
