A big thanks to our host for the CLT Boomer Expo: The Olde Mecklenburg Brewery. In March 2009, The Olde Mecklenburg Brewery opened its doors, making it Charlotte’s only local brewery. Charlotteans embraced it with a bear hug (that was the authentic German beer talking) and OMB started to build a dedicated following that’s never really stopped growing.
Today, in a new, larger space that features a spectacular eight-acre German-style Biergarten, a state-of-the-art 60-barrel Brewery (largest locally owned craft brewhouse in the state), and a dine-in Brauhaus Charlotte’s oldest brewery continues to grow while staying committed to fresh, local beer.
During the CLT Boomer Expo, you’ll be able to enjoy “the best brewery tour in America,” according to USA Today readers, every half hour between 2-4 p.m. And of course the indoor restaurant and food huts in the biergarten will be open for food and drink.
As owner John Marrino says, “Not everything can be local, but beer can and should be.” OMB looks forward to providing Charlotte with good times and its freshest beer for many years to come.
