Resident Culture Brewing
They have a wide variety of beers: stouts, sours, pale ales, IPAs, and ton of collaborations. I like their unique flavors and doing a flight is the way to go. I struggle to find one beer to commit to because of the uniqueness of the flavors and a strong flavor that sometimes wears on the palate. Their food truck Friday is also an awesome outing.
Comfortable industrial-styled space with ample patio space serving up what I think is some of the best beer in North Carolina. Often has food trucks on-site and events going on. Most important aspect of a brewery in my OPINION is the beer itself, and Resident Culture is no slouch in this category. Their biggest focus clearly are the big juice-bomb hazy IPAs which they absolutely crush (see: Lightning series). Their only weakness is the beer is a little overpriced IMO for North Carolina, but not shocking to see premium prices for premium brew. Definitely worth a stop for beer lovers.
Eh. My favorite thing about this place are the indoor and outdoor spaces. Unique and eclectic - right up my alley and I especially loved the Curio vending machine. The outside is really nice as well with fire pits and a large amount of space/seating. Maybe it was an off day but the bartender had the personality of a wet mop and I felt like an inconvenience. He didnt smile; he barely uttered any kind of word - even when I tried to make a joke, youd think there would be some kind of exchange. Nothing. Definitely got the order your drink and GTFO vibe. I thought maybe I was misreading the vibe but my friends agreed they felt the same way. GTFO is exactly what I wanted to do as I did not feel welcome. I also didnt love what I got. I got a ginger flavored beer alternative something and it was very sweet like drinking straight up soda. I dont go to breweries often but when I do, this place isnt gonna be on my list. The service and drink left a sour taste in my mouth (literally) and with all the breweries in Charlotte, there are plenty more to choose from.
I'm writing this review after working at RC for almost three years. Resident Culture is the greatest place I've ever worked. I've never been employed by more loving and earnest people. The owners care about their customers and community more than I can even describe. I had just walked into a Monday shift when I received the news that my grandfather had passed. RC CLOSED the brewery so I could mourn. They lost a whole day of sales just to care for me. This isn't the only time they bent over backwards for our work family and it wont be the last. RC cares for people like no other business I have worked for. I know the business in and out at this point and I can verify that all things are done in love at RC. Fostering a community of love and acceptance is the top priority. I am forever grateful for the opportunities I have been given through this business. Did I mention it's the best beer in charlotte? I learned so very much about craft beer working here. Please check us out so we can show you the care I have described.
Fun brewery in a happening area of Charlotte. They have a wide selection of pilsner's commas ales, IPAs, and tap takeovers from local breweries. Their beer is really good and the atmosphere both indoors and outdoors is perfect almost year round. The one drawback is the limited parking on site. They do have a wheelchair accessible entrance, parking spots, and restrooms as well. They do have some cans and grab and go selection as well.
