Beer Quality Beer Selection Food Service Overall
Awesome! Great N/A Great Awesome!
I stopped in on Olde Mecklenberg Brewery 12/02/09 to try their wares and found the place nearly empty. They had three beers on draught: 'Kolsner' (a kolsch); 'Copper' (a traditional alt), and 'Mecktoberfest' (Oktoberfest). The place is a modified older warehouse that was sparklingly clean with the tap room that gives the sense of an old German bier hall (complete with Dusseldorf-style woodwork and benches). I found out from the brewer why no one was there - they would be releasing their Yule Bock the following night. It turned out pretty good as I was able to chat with John for quite a while and came back the following night for the big event. The next night was packed with home brewers, and beer lovers and generally pleasant folks.

All four beers were simply excellent and not at all standard microbrewery fare. They all clearly featured a artful selection of malts and were balanced perfectly with the right additions of hops. The Copper was my favorite but right behind it was the Kolsner. Both the Mecktoberfest and the Yule Bock (7.1%) were excellent seasonal offerings as well. Not a pale ale to be found but I really respect these guys for stepping out of the crowd. All their efforts seem to be towards adherance to style and how to make the beer excellent.

Let me say just few more things about what makes this place so great. How about the Austrian-made pressure-filler for the Grolsh-style growlers (roughly 1 qt & 1/2 gallon)? The beer you take home will really taste like it does at the brewery. How about that they only use natural carbonation?

This place has only been open for 8 months and I really hope that places like this are the wave of the furture; we'll all drink well! (In other words this is the best reason I've seen to wish I lived in Charlotte.)
