NoDa Brewing Company
Stopped through while waiting on my delayed flight and the fellas behind the bar here are great. Even with a packed counter they still found a way to interact with everyone and provide you with a joyful experience. The drinks were good and pizza was great(even though I had to run and finish the rest on my flight).
Justin was AMAZING, I have no idea how he kept up with everything. HOWEVER, he was the only one there and was way overworked and had ZERO help. One person serving 36 people is insane. Two people briefly walked out of the back but didn't help at all. I was amazed at how many people walked away, lots of lost business. I'm a Charlotte local and LOVE NoDa but was sad to see so many people walked away and missed amazing beer. Just be cautious if you have a connecting flight or are on a time frame, it took me 20 minutes to just pay out.
One of the best airport beer spots I have been too. Don't waste time anywhere else at Gate A. Hang a right after security, not a left. Go left after security to grab some food to bring with you to No Da, but don't get caught up at any of the bars in that section. Trust me. Go right after security. Just keep walking til it dead-ends. No Da had a great selection of high-end beers, a couple of huge tvs, a ton of great natural light, really friendly and personable people behind the bar, and access to plenty of food options. This is the spot to drink beer and wait for the flight.
One of the best Charlotte breweries! If you're passing through, definitely worth a stop for their IPA. Cans available to go!
Pork belly pizza was delicious! Forgot I was eating in an airport. Bartender was very friendly too
