Legion Brewing Company
Shared 3 flights of different beers and enjoyed 10/12 which is an incredibly high hit rate for me. Incredibly friendly and helpful staff. They have a lot of board and card games there if thats your thing.
Great Atmosphere, and the bands that play there are always great to hear. They have a wide selection of craft beer that will satisfy any craft beer drinker, beginner or a season drinker.
After moving from Cali where the beer scene is very different than Charlotte, we had a tough time finding a spot that had a beer both my fianc and I would like - fruity IPA for him and usually a light beer for me. Legion was the answer to our beer prayers! I love the sparkle party with blackberry and my fianc's new favorite beer is their Juicy Jay. The place is small and usually busy because they always have something going on- to me that's a good thing!
When I visited it was very crowded, and a live band was playing, making the place extremely loud. I assume it was just a weekend night, but the brewery really just felt like a bar. We got a flight and tried almost everything on the menu. Nothing was amazing, and many beers had a soapy quality to them. I thought this was odd because I've gotten Juicy Jay (their flagship IPA) at bars before and enjoyed it. The Rye Pale Ale was the tastiest thing we had. I would highly recommend visiting on a weeknight.
Staff is always super friendly and the beer is great and very consistent! They serve good food as well!
