Ass Clown Brewing Company
- Open Now
Hands down best brewery I have been too, which is no less than 100 breweries. They don't just have your typical IPA, pale ale, stout and a brown. They have such great ideas and they taste even better. Can't remember all the names I tried cause it was 12 (3 flights). Not disappointed with any at all. Sours we're amazing which not many breweries are capable of that. Had a Carolina reaper infused IPA which was amazing. Can't say enough about them. Great work
Always a great A+ experience. Matt is super friendly and takes care of everyone quickly. Gets to know everyone and what they like to drink. Not to mention the beers are phenomenal
Up front, I don't get the name. I think it's a turn off and perhaps a bad marketing choice. But one thing it tells you about the brewery is that they're going to do things their way, and they don't care what anybody thinks about it. What this does is create really fantastic beers. Many that come out are not ones that I would order again or get a pint of, but you can tell that every single beer is really well made. The atmosphere is a little crazy, but again, the beer is so good. This might be the best brewery in the Lake Norman area and is likely top 5 in the Charlotte region.
It's a little confusing to find but go into the plaza all the way to the back and you'll see their logo on the building. They have three separate clean and cozy lounge areas with a variety of beers on tap. Staff is friendly and accommodating.
Some of these beers are too creative for my taste, but I'm also super picky. One of my favorites is the Orange Citrus IPA. They always have the best variety around, though. I can find at least one to love on. They have $8 flights that make it fun to taste a few. Love the small tap room and they have live music on weekends. It is much more intimate space than other breweries.
