Gilde 1546 Brewery
Lower South End
We really enjoyed this place. We had the pretzel, bratwurst, mustard sampler, and beer sampler. All were good. Nice German decor. Service was great. The only comment is that they charge $3 for a mustard sampler if you want mustard with your food. That is a little weird. The smooth is like Grey Poupon and the grain tasted like regular mustard. The other one is a sweet type which was not my favorite. It is not worth the extra money. Otherwise, we had a great experience. I would definitely recommend this place.

A must go-to destination. Soon as you walk in the staff is friendly as well as dog friendly with great outdoor seating. Very clean and spacious with a great beer selection and German food to pair with your beer. Very positive experience and will return again. Very highly recommend to go for socializing or to just go solo to enjoy the atmosphere with a beer or food.
Exciting to be there for the grand opening. They struggled at the start with a surprising turnout but quickly pulled it together and it was FANTASTIC. Friendly staff. Delicious German delights. And well...the BEER. Not my last visit and bringing friends.

Nice new brewery in LoSo! Spacious inside and outside with lots of German touches. Service was great, our waitress Andy was really knowledgeable and helpful! We got a pretzel which was served with a traditional German cheese dip. It was much thicker than the beer cheese we are used to in Charlotte but still had a nice flavor. The spaetzle was almost like a mac and cheese. Plus it was a very large portion! The bauernwurst was really delicious especially with the mustard and vinegar-based potato salad. The beers were top notch as well; we did 2 flights and our favorites were the Red Rooster and the Dark Hen (which tasted like banana bread!!). The radler was good but sweet and only served in a can so you cant get it as part of a flight. Overall really impressive especially since they just opened last week. Cant wait until they host events and hopefully they will expand their menu to have more entree options!
Excellent food and beers. We have been waiting a long time to get Gilde in town since they announced it (in 2020?) and it was worth the wait!! Looking forward for some shades for the outside seating though, it gets real hot real fast!
