We take a dive into the area's love of all things alcohol.
Rather than stiff conversation, the networking event uses liquid courage to steer discussions and hopefully lead to lasting connections. #InstaBeerUpCLT traditionally takes place the last Thursday of the month at different locations across the city. You can keep an eye on the hashtag to find out where they’ll be next.
Bold Missy Brewery
Bold Missy Brewery is quickly becoming a NoDa staple. With each beer named for a ‘bold missy’ from past and present, the concept is a hit with Charlotteans. And the brewery is taking the next step by releasing its first bottled beer! Named in honor of adventurer Alison Levine, a small batch of barrel-aged Conquer the Route Chocolate Stout will be released in bottles on September 25th.
Southern Grace Distilleries
When Southern Grace Distilleries started brainstorming a name for their bourbon whiskey, a prison theme seemed like a must. They’d recently relocated their operation to the old state prison facility in Mount Pleasant, and the idea of a bourbon ‘doing hard time behind bars’ was too good to pass up.
Catawba Brewing Co.
Catawba Brewing Company is one of the OG’s of craft beer in the Queen City. They’ve been selling in the area since the turn of the century and it’s no surprise their beer is a favorite among Charlotteans. What started as a passion project on the side has transformed into a full blown operation with multiple taprooms and production facility – with one right in NoDa.
