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.

Big building that is divided into the main beer hall and a reception hall that is available for rentals. Couple of fire pits out front, as well as some cornhole boards and plenty of seating. Inside, the place has a great vibe, with an open, beer hall feel. Long, L-shaped bar all the way towards the back of the main room, and you can see in to the brewing area behind the bar. 6 taps going, with a decent rotation of seasonal offerings. Swing top growlers are available of a few of the tap offerings, as well as some bottles of the other taps. Didn't get around to any of the food while we were there, but I did spot some of the pretzels, and they looked pretty damn good. The staff was fairly helpful behind the bar, and friendly. Looking forward to getting back there again for some more of their winter releases.

Friday night visit saw a somewhat sparse but happy crowd of all sorts of folks and families. I did not get immediate attention as to how things work here. It's a nice open atmosphere that's clean and relaxed with ails German theme evident. I requested help and received very friendly attention and prompt service. The beer is pretty much all German derived so if you're craving a hopped up American IPA prepare yourself for different pleasures. And the beer was very good based on the three varieties I had. They had 6 or 7 different styles available at the time and you could order a half pint or full pint at reasonable prices. The food includes some American sand which type faire as well as some nice wurst / weiner options. I opted for the wurst with several sides and it was very tasty. Served on paper plates at big picnic tables, or beer hall type tables. All in all, a very enjoyable dinner and beer experience which you need to make part of your Charlotte experience. It appears they will Beijing to a bigger and better location just down the street from their current site. Should be exciting. I think they should make the greeting of new guests a little more efficient and they need to work on their tee shirt inventory!
