Went on a mini brewery crawl this weekend stopping at Birdsong, Heist, and finishing with dinner at Growlers Pourhouse. But the first stop of the day was the newly opened Triple C Brewing Co.

Located in the Historic Southend area, Triple C is fairly easy to find, but does blend in with the other nondescript industrial type buildings in the area. I think they have chosen a good location, as this area is in the process of being revitalized.

The taproom is fairly spacious and well laid out, with a couple of TVs on the walls (but not so many as to be distracting). There is a large window where you can see the brewhouse from the tap room.

The service was pretty good, the servers checked on us often and made sure that our glasses never ran dry. They seemed to have a rudimentary knowledge of the beers, and were very friendly.

They had five beers on tap when we went (pale ale, IPA, Smoked Amber Ale, Double IPA, and a Blonde Ale). The beers were good for the most part. I usually like the IPA's and IIPA's but in this case I found the Blonde and the Smoked Amber to be the best beers of the day. Unfortunately, I was not terribly impressed by their hoppy offerings (Pale Ale, IPA, IIPA), They seemed to be fairly one dimensional, and the hops were all bittering with to real hop flavor coming through. Not that any of them were bad, just none of them wowed me.

They do not serve any food, but there was a food truck there so that was nice.

Overall, I really enjoyed the place and would definitely come back again. and again. and again...

Great space for spending an afternoon. They have a lot of outdoor seating for when the weather is nice which is great. Definitely worth getting a flight so that you can sample everything they have to offer.

This spot definitely brews stronger beers- probably right up there with NoDa in that respect. I enjoyed the vibe and quality of the beers and definitely had a taste for their dark beers rather than their IPAs. I would rate their IPA line-up middle of the pack for the Charlotte IPA scene.

Stop # 452 on my world brewery tour.

8ish on a Wed night. Bustling both inside and out (with food truck). Very much prototype of new breweries in older renovated industrial areas. Exposed wood and brick accented by lighting. Big open space with brewery behind glass next to the bar.

Got a flight with three ipa's (one black), and a smoked amber. 3 C IPA very good. Smoked amber not smoky enough. Not thrilled about the movement of only certain beers are available on a flight (lower ABV).

They put out solid stuff! 3c IPA is a great go-to hopped beer, Baby Maker is fantastic, and this new "The Force" Rum Barrel Aged Tripel is wild!
