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.

A great little piece of Germany transported into Charlotte, NC. Tables even imported from there. Only inhouse brews available and one of the seasonals had just run out, leaving three beers to sample (plus an extra from an archival bottle).

I met the owner and Mr. Self, who showed me around and explained the brewery's philosophy of making German style beer true to the 1516 purity laws. Also keeping seasonals actually seasonal.

The pils was great, reminding me a lot of my years in Germany. I would put it up against anything imported (and the plus is that it's fresher). The dunkle was also very nice and had exellent mouth feel. The amber (the flagship beer) was also nice, although alts are not my favorite.

The food was typical German fare (not the best thing for a vegetarian) and the service was friendly, knowledgeable and fast.

Worth a visit.

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.
