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.
