Notes:
The Olde Mecklenburg Brewery (OMB) was founded so that people in the Charlotte region could finally enjoy world class beer fresh from the lager tanks. The way beer was meant to be enjoyed. We use only the highest quality ingredients and employ traditional, intensive brewing methods to transform these ingredients into beer that's full flavored yet light and very refreshing. In short, beer that will satisfy all of your senses. Though more costly to produce, we think you'll agree that the result is worth it. And because the brewery is located in south Charlotte we are able to deliver ultra-fresh draft beer weekly to your favorite local establishment.

Olde Meck is tucked away in an industrial park. Outside the front door sits a handful of picnic tables, umbrellas, and beanbags. Stepping inside you are greeted by a high-ceilinged, open, beer hall-esque seating area. The bar sits at the back left corner with a nice display of glassware and a tv opposite. On my recent visit there were only three beers available due to their packing up and moving.

Service was friendly though there wasn't much interaction, simply ordering a beer and pretzel. The pilsner was top notch, clean and delicious as most of Olde Meck's beers seem to be. The pretzel was hot, chewy, salty, and served with a delicious spicy mustard. Prices are very reasonable. I went during the day on a Saturday so there were a couple picnic tables full outside and a few tables full inside but it was quiet for the most part. A nice place with, from what I hear, a good selection. Seems I went at the wrong time considering the move. I would highly recommend.

This place is literally on the other side of the tracks.

For what it's worth the interior is reminiscent of a German hunting lodge/beer hall. I believe the owner spent quite a bit of time in Germany and modeled the taproom on beer halls he visited. Massive dark wood wall panels (oak or walnut) rise up 10 + feet and have an aged look. Banquet hall chandeliers and flags of the German provinces add to the aura. You can definitely picture some antlers, a fireplace, or bear rugs here.
I did not try the food but everyone else seemed to, which might suggest that it is good. They have tours of the actual brewery which can be seen through the glass behind the bar. Very casual, you can hop on and jump out as needed to get a refill.
The beers only elevate the experience, and make this an outstanding establishment . Pils, dunkel, and christmas seasonals were amazing. Not too impressed with the weiss and underwhelming style to begin, this and underwhelming flavor. I didn't have much interactions with the service staff, but they flaunted their southern hospitality well.

Stop # 447 on my world brewery tour.

Very well done German-style establishment. Classy with tons of cash behind it. Lots of beer hall tables, no stools at the bar to watch the world series on on the three big screens.

Did all four beers in a flight and went back for the Alt (copper) and Pilsner. Very well done and as enjoyable as a place with no IPA's can be.

Great new place they have here (they recently moved into a larger location and are still renovating some areas). Very spacious. Great place to have a large gathering (you can reserve large rooms for private parties) and they have a huge outdoor space for eating and playing games as well as a large bar and dining hall. German roots, authentic, 4 beer types on tap and 4 wines on hand at a time. Limited food options. They have stuck to their German roots and have a wonderful product.
