This Brewery is great -- they do everything well. If NoDa's were the only beers available to me, I don't think I would miss anything else.
My personal favorites (so far) are:
Hop, drop and roll
imperial Coco Loco
Cold Crash Winter Ale
Beyond these, I still haven't been disappointed -- they are all great.
Quality beer that can compete with any.

I have always loved NoDa Brewing company because they have a wide variety of beers, and during the summer have a nice atmosphere. The Coco Loco quickly became one of my favorite beers once I tasted it's coco nutty goodness. They fill growlers and have tours. Within walking distance is Bird Song and a nice little food place. Their types of beers always pushes my palette and on weekends they have events like bands and such. Great place. Will always go back.

Cool warehouse feel to this brewery in the NoDa district of town. When I arrived, only the bar was full and all the tables were empty. Got my brews from the 'tender and then the doors bursted open with all the peeps taking the brewery tour. Needless to say, the place livened up quite a bit.
The beer was good. Hop Drop 'n Roll is a staple at my house, so I tried the Imperial HDnR. Good, but the single IPA is much better. I've become quite the Berliner Weiss-guy lately, so tried the Tart Attack and was pretty disappointed. Not very sour and there wasn't that good malty backbone that the quality BW's tend to have.
Then had about 10 different options on tap, including some kambucha, if that's your thing. 6 or so regulars, and then about 4 imperial versions.
Overall, its a cool little place. The food truck is right outside, but I didn't try anything. Hung out for a couple brews, then headed over to Birdsong next-door.

NoDa had the highest reviews of any brewpub in Charlotte on Beer Advocate, so I had high expectations going in. And while I think it's certainly a solid establishment, it's completely overrated online. Probably because Charlotte is new to the whole microbrewery scene and doesn't really understand what's outside of North Carolina.
As far as taprooms go that are attached to the actual brewing operations, NoDa has their space down. Lots of exposed brick, an open floor plan, easy access to the bar, a few televisions, and a seemless integration of being both hip and mellow. It's certainly a great place to hang out.
As far as the beer goes, however, I found their offerings a bit lacking. They have plenty of options - ranging from the traditional categories and meandering into sours and barrel-aged brews - but all of them completely failed to captivate me. Don't get me wrong, it's all very good, but it's all more of a B+ range than a solid A.
I tried everything they had in samples and settled on a full pour of an oak-aged ale - I don't recall the specific brand now. In any event, it wasn't great. If it were, I'd have made a point to remember.
The bartenders are helpful though, steering me toward the cask aged version of the brew rather than the regular version I had originally ordered. And the food trucks outside are pretty solid too. But in the end, I've been to better spots, although it is definitely the best option in Charlotte proper from what I've tasted.
