When most people think of Earth Fare, they probably think of that store’s great selection of organic foods and specialty items. Even some of the most die-hard Charlotte beer geeks, though, don’t realize that you can find some great beers on Earth Fare shelves, sometimes long after other stores have sold out.
For instance, Earth Fare has in the past received Founders KBS and Bell’s Hopslam. When New Belgium’s La Folie and Le Terroir were sold out elsewhere, you could find them at Earth Fare. Of course, you shouldn’t reserve your trips to Earth Fare solely for these more limited beers; Earth Fare’s selection may be small, but it’s well chosen.
With locations in SouthPark, Ballantyne and nearby Rock Hill, S.C., Earth Fare is an option that many Charlotte beer geeks forget about, but shouldn’t. The Rock Hill location also gets some beers that aren’t available in NC stores, such as beers from COAST Brewing in Charleston, SC.
