Old Mecklenburg Brewery, Charlotte

#4 of 13 in Breweries & Distilleries in Charlotte
Brewery · Hidden Gem · Food & Drink
Founded in 2009, The Olde Mecklenburg Brewery ignited the ultra-premium beer scene in Charlotte and has been at the forefront of the local market ever since. OMB adheres to the oldest purity guidelines in the world, the German “Reinheitsgebot.” This law states there can be only four ingredients in beer: water, barley or wheat malt, hops, and yeast. It’s “beer flavored beer” and it’s always fresh as OMB only distributes within a 60-mile radius. OMB is one of only nine craft breweries included on the Inc. 5000 list, and the only in North Carolina. OMB’s fall seasonal Mecktoberfest recently won a gold medal at Germany’s European Beer Star competition, and the brewery’s tour was named Best in the Country by the readers of USA Today. OMB Charlotte Born & Brewed.

  • We were passing through Charlotte. Great beer and fun atmosphere for kids and adults alike. Pretzels were good but the pizza and brats were terrible and overpriced. Do yourself a favor and pack...  more »
  • This place is great! Very kid friendly and dog friendly. Huge outdoor beer garden. During covid, you can order from your phone and servers bring to your table or you can have full service! Lovely...  more »
  • Hey there friends, I thought I have been to some great breweries but now, after seeing OMB, this place is just over the top. Besides the fact that they have a tremendous beer garden, OMB is certainly nothing short of stature. The bar is tremendous, their display of glasses are just beautiful, their selection of beers, amazing and the food....omg. we just started on the amazing hummus and pretzels, now I'm thinking of going for the sausage, huge and certainly looks good, check the pic! When in Charlotte, this is a must see visit!!
  • Cool place with both indoor and outdoor seating. The beer and food are both alright. They have wine as well. There are events here sometimes. The atmosphere and facilities are definitely better than the food and drink available. Parking is terrible on events days. Better to Uber.
