  1. Do you know of any Beer themed running races around town this year?

  2. I am looking for a team event to do after work. I thought either a beer making class, or a brewery tour and tasting would be fun. Does anyone know if there is anything like that available in Charlotte?

    • Hey Cheryl, sorry I’m just now getting back to you. There aren’t any regular brewing classes, though our local homebrew club, the Carolina BrewMasters, will hold organized brew days in addition to a monthly meeting where they get together to talk shop and sample beers. I think they’re pretty active on this Facebook group.

      You might also want to check in with the folks at Alternative Beverage (i.e. Beer and Wine Hobbies, Int’l). They will also host brew days from time to time.

      As for tours, you could go with someone like Feast Food Tours or choose to organize your own tour. If you do the latter, you might consider visiting either NoDa Brewing/Birdsong/Heist in the NoDa neighborhood, or The Olde Mecklenburg Brewery and Triple C Brewing on the other side of town in SouthEnd.

      Also, keep an eye on the events calendar, because restaurants, bars and our bottle shops all do tastings very frequently.

      I hope this is helpful; let me know if you have any further questions!


      • Hi Cheryl,
        Sorry I didn’t see this until now, Carolina BrewMasters gave a brewing demonstration March 16th for Charlotte Craft Beer week at Lenny Boy Kombucha in South End.

        We could do another event for your team as an education session. You can contact me (email above) or Shawn McBride at education@carolinabrewmasters.com

  3. Does anyone know of any type of Booze Cruise in Charlotte that would take patrons to some or all of the different tap rooms in Charlotte?

    • Hey Blair,

      I know of only one from Feast Food Tours, which stops at some of the breweries in NoDa. The Asheville Brews Cruise is what piqued my interest in craft beer while going to school at UNC Asheville, and I’m really surprised that something like that hasn’t popped up here in Charlotte! We certainly have the breweries now to support such a tour.

      Good luck, and thanks for reading!


  4. I noticed that the event calendar still lists the free beer tasting at the Ballantyne Duckworths every Thursday. This event was unfortunately discontinued a few months ago.

    • Hey Jason,

      I took the Park Rd. tastings down a while back, but must have forgotten to remove the Ballantyne ones. Thanks for letting me know!

    A couple of my friends ride from Triple C every Wednesday around 6 pm, I think. I would show up at 5-5:30 and look for two hot blonds. Drinks afterward.
