Notes:
Founded in 2009, The Olde Mecklenburg Brewery is Charlotte’s oldest local brewery, igniting the ultra-premium beer scene in the region and continuing to be at the forefront of the local market ever since. OMB adheres to the oldest purity guidelines in the world, the German “Reinheitsgebot.” This law states there can be only four ingredients in beer: barley or wheat malt, hops, yeast and pure water. OMB was recently named to the Inc. 5000 list, one of only nine breweries included and the only in North Carolina. The brewery’s tour was named best in the country by the readers of USA Today. Try OMB because it’s local, drink it because it’s fresh.

Dec 2017 - outskirts of Charlotte but reachable by the light rail with small walk. German bier hall ambiance, large open space, bars, table and extensive outdoor area. About 6-8 brews on tap, but samples not available when the place is busy. Good mixture of the german brews you'd expect. Well organized menu of german fare, reasonable priced, everything we ordered was tasty. Recommend a visit/.

This place is amazingly authentic German! You can't get any more real feel than their massive biergarten. The beer is perfect spot on to the German styles. The food amazing as well. This was my favorite of the 7 breweries I visited in Charlotte. Cannot wait to go back. We have the 1st Hofbrauhaus in the U.S. close to where I live, and this place is BETTER!

My wife and I ate here on a Wednesday around noon, it was not very crowded and the service was very quick. I loved the outside beer garden and the picnic style seating. I had the Mecktoberfest and Copper and both were amazing, it was my first time having both. The food was excellent as well, my wife and I split the butcher block pizza and the soft pretzel. They had roughly 10 beers on draft and the food selection was great.

This is a great lunch spot. Has the feel of an old pub, darkly lit but still with plenty of space and several televisions. The quality of the beer is excellent, they adhere to German purity laws and it is an awesome change of pace from all the crazy breweries out there. The service was helpful and attentive. Selection was low. Only 4 beers to choose from and then a couple shandys. The food is honestly the best part, a lot of authentic german food. The wurst and sauerkraut is excellent!

The (fairly new) outdoor beer garden space is one of the best places in Charlotte to enjoy a sunny day. If you've ever been to a German biergarten, this place will feel very familiar. It's a wide-open outdoor space where families, kids, dogs are all welcome, which makes for a great relaxing vibe.

The beers are all German-style, so no IPAs, but their flagship brew, OMB Copper, is one of my favorites. The seasonal selection rotates as well, and the Fruh Bock and Dunkel are two I would recommend highly.

I'm a hop head so their beer selection is not the best for me but the traditional German beers they have are very good. They need a Gose. But this is the best beer garden I've been to (and been to several east coast to west coast and Colorado, Hawaii) with huge oak trees.
