Since The Olde Mecklenburg Brewery vacated their old building to move just down the street, the new tenants at 215 Southside Drive have been hard at work brewing and renovating the taproom. Now, Sugar Creek Brewing is ready to welcome the public to Charlotte’s first Belgian-inspired brewery.
The grand opening celebration will be held on Friday, Oct. 10 and Saturday, Oct. 11, however the brewery will be open every weekend until then starting this Friday, Sept. 19. Stop by to try their witbier, saison, dubbel and pale ale between 4-10 p.m. on Fridays, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturdays and 12-8 p.m. on Sundays leading up to the grand opening celebration.
As for that event, it will feature those beers as well as live music, barbecue, outdoor games and tours of the new facility.
Having had the chance to sample some of these beers a few weeks ago, I can tell you that Sugar Creek Brewing is poised to do big things here in Charlotte. I’ll have more next week in The Charlotte Observer.
