NoDa Brewing Company
This brewery truly has it all. Just about every style of beer you can imagine, they have. Have not had one that disappoints. Also, the main sponsor for the Whitewater Center and The Woody and Wilcox Show on 106.5. Without a doubt would be in anyone's top 3 breweries in Charlotte list. A must go!
There's nothing like the "home patio" feel this place gives. The fire pit is always on during the winter times and if it's not, the employee's will get it up for you. The beer is pretty great here; I especially love Cavu. Sometimes they do free tours of the brewing room which is cool! There's also always Tin food truck out there which has great food too! Pets are welcomed outside as long as they're on leashes. I always take mine!
NoDa is the quintessential Charlotte brewery. Everything you want is a brewery is right here. Their beers are fantastic, starting with their flagship Hop, Drop, and Roll. Try their limited release stuff if you are able to, because there are really some tremendous beers there. Their new location is much better than their old one in my opinion. Doesn't feel like a bar, and has plenty of really fantastic patio space.
The flagship micro brewery of the Queen City upgraded to this much larger and nicer space since I last visited. Easily my favorite spot to load up on well-refined IPAs when I'm hanging out in Charlotte. Kids and dogs friendly.
Great taproom and drinks. Service was awesome. Food trucks on site are delicious.
