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.

Outstanding!! Great beer, excellent service, cool atmosphere. Has the feel of a true German beer hall. The servers are friendly and quick to make sure your glass never runs dry.

The beer is reasonable at $3.50 a pint or $1.75 a 1/2 pint. The growlers are quite reasonable also at $13.50 for 37 ounces and only $4.50 for a refill.

They have three offerings: the Copper is an alt beer, the Kolshner is a kolsh, and then a rotating seasonal offering. The current seasonal is a light Bavarian ale. Having tried the alt and kolsh I can say the beer is very high quality.

Loverly place, terrific beer. Inside looks like a German beer house, outside like a beer garden. Folks are friendly and it has long tables...(like a Bier Garden). I usually meet up with some Bavarian friends there (as Charlotte has an undue number of German businesses...). There are handmade benches on the wall (German style, of course) as well as German state flags hanging from the ceiling. Special hours were reserved for World Cup action....all in German tradition. John Marino, the CEO has a particular nack for choosing beautiful servers as well... and of course they are always fun.

Olde Meck is family friendly....I see people bring kids all the time, as it is no smoking inside (and outside there are plenty of breezes...) as well as dog friendly (outside).
