I’ll be in Charlotte Tomorrow Afternoon

Recommended Posts

Anyone want to join me for beers and lunch? Driving North from Miami and in Savannah for the night. Any great breweries/BBQ joints that I could grab lunch at with some Panther fans? I need to kill a few hours in the Queen City tomorrow afternoon so any recommendations or ideas are welcome.

Brewery wise I like wooden robot the best. 

This is one of the worst breweries in Charlotte. Their setup sucks and so does their beer. Brass tap next door is a better hangout than WR.

Wooden Robot does actually make some good beer. I would have suggested some others, maybe. Heist, Salud, Resident Culture, etc.

We werent exaclty thrilled with the atmosphere. We got there at like 2pm and the places was packed. Super packed. People acting like idiots and I’m in my early 30s and we felt like we were the oldest people there. Not my scene. 

PS the only beer I got there wasn’t good, either. Forgot what it was called.

Yeah, I can understand that. They do some very good sours and some solid IPA's as well. I have been seeing some of their sours start popping up in the beer trading scene, so their name is starting to get out there in that world. 

I haven't done a Charlotte brewery tour in a while, I need to roll down there because there are a lot of good spots popping up that I haven't been to.

It’s to the point now that I’m basically done with craft beer. With a few exceptions. The hangovers I get from them are awful. I went to Olde Meck a month ago and started slamming their Frubach and has to force myself to get off the couch the next day after eating 4 Advil. I’m to the point now where I just have a few drinks and that’s it.

Go to Heist. If you like NEIPA's, their current tap list is stupid. Uberquenchl, Citraquenchl, Not From Concentrate, Blurred is the Word, MO-J. Great, great stuff. They have a very good blackberry berliner style weisse. Great mouthfeel. Nailed the heavily fruited kettle style, IMO.

Wooden Robot has a solid lineup currently but nothing to write home about. Mainly some good sours and a few above average IPA's.

Salud has a good beer list currently, mostly good NEIPA's. They do have a good milkshake style IPA, if you are into that trend. Also, they have a bottle shop attached with some guest taps that are pretty awesome. Mexican Cake on tap currently among other really good options(some Heist is on tap, some Fonta Flora). 

Resident Culture has some more very good IPA's and kettle sours but I don't think they open until 3 PM.

Divine Barrel I have not been to but have heard good things. Looking through their tap list, it looks like they have some solid saisons and kettle sours available.

High Branch is in Concord but what little from them I have had, I have been pretty impressed with. I don't see their tap list up, so I don't know what they have right now. It would be more of a gamble. Also, they don't open until 4 pm.

Well you can't exactly slam a lot of the craft beers because they are higher ABV in a lot of cases. Plus, the older you get, the higher that hangover penalty is no matter what you are drinking. I am pretty heavily involved in the craft beer world, so I enjoy it quite a bit but it's funny how a lot of the people operate(myself included), you rarely see a lot of "full pour" orders. If I have a 4-6 oz pour option available to me, I will take that every time. I would rather "taste" a bunch of beer rather than try to hammer down 7-8 pints, end up trashed, beer logged or worse.

 I like sours that's why I like it.  Most breweries have a douchey crowd.  I went to lenny boy the other day,  it wasn't bad

In Rock Hill so almost there. I have my dog with me and the rain isn’t ideal. I want to stop in Charlotte to grab food and a drink. Any dog friendly spots with covered patio seating that anyone knows of preferably near the stadium?

I don't get too much of a douche crowd at most breweries I have been to. Fonta Flora for sure, Veil on occasion. I think a lot of it depends on when you go. If you hit a brewery on a Friday or Saturday night, you are going to get douchey people. That's just the nature of the peak crowds.

I haven't had a bunch of Lenny Boy. They get some of their stuff out in my area(Triangle) and I just haven't gone out of my way to try it yet.
