BALLANTYNE'S FIRST BREWERY IS OPENING IN SUMMER 2023

Great News For Charlotte's Craft Beer Lovers!

 

"Beer, if drank with moderation, softens the temper, cheers the spirit, and promotes health."

Thomas Jefferson

 

Charlotte's Olde Mecklenburg Brewery (OMB), a Queen City favorite since 2009 has announced plans to open its second Charlotte location in south Charlotte's Ballantyne area in Summer 2023. Great news for Ballantyne beer lovers who've been travelling to OMB's location on Yancey Road in Charlotte's South End and who will now be able to enjoy their beer at Charlotte's oldest craft brewery closer to home. To read about OMB's awards through the years, click here.

 

 

The Ballantyne OMB Biergarten and restaurant will feature 14,000 square feet of indoor space, a 7,000-square-foot patio dining area + balcony, an event space on the second floor, and a playground at one end of the Biergarten. This will be the largest brewery in south Charlotte. It will anchor the new dining and retail district called "The Bowl at Ballantyne" just east of the Ballantyne Hotel.

 

"Milk is for babies. When you grow up you have to drink beer."

... Arnold Schwartzenegger

 

The Olde Mecklenburg Brewery & Biergarten has been home to Charlotte's popular Mecktoberfest for years. Hopefully, we'll be seeing Mecktoberfest at the Ballantyne location, as well, once it opens.

 

"Without question, the greatest invention in the history of mankind is beer. Oh, I grant you that the wheel was also a fine invention, but the wheel does not go nearly as well with pizza."

... Dave Barry

Brian England hi Brian... I suspect the new OMB will be packed to the gills once it opens.

Beth Atalay hi Beth... apart from the beer, OMB offers popular events like Mecktoberfest and a German Christmas market. Since I don't drink beer, I don't travel to the other end of town for the Christmas market... but if they hold one here in Ballantyne, I'd certainly travel four miles down the road.

Craft breweries have grown in most states. Here in Kingman we have one as well. I am not a beer drinker but prefer wine especially Mead or aged scotch.

Leanne Smith hi Leanne... Charlotte's become a major hub for craft breweries in the last decade. As for me, I don't drink at all except for an occasional glass of champagne.

Beer lovers are going to be excited to hear the news Nina. We stopped by one in Eastern Long Island a couple of months ago, just to see what it was like.

Nina, interesting Ballantyne doesn't have any breweries?    I think Denver is the hub for the most breweries.

Joan Cox hi Joan... technically, Ballantyne is not a city or town... it's just the name of an area in Charlotte. Charlotte has around 50 breweries now. I do know that Portland is the #1 city for breweries on a per capita basis but I think that Denver has more actual brewery facilities.

Hi Nina- it's always exciting to read of businesses opening in an area!!! We had a favorite brewery we go to when visiting Lawrence KS where Larry went to college and grew up.

That sounds fun, and a great place to meet up. Another reason to travel to Charlotte if the grandchildren were not enough.

Nina my youngest son is into visiting local breweries when he is on vacation.  This is one I am sure he would visit if he was in the area.

George Souto hi George... personally, I've never gotten the whole "beer thing."  But for beer lovers this is a great new option.

Ed Silva hi Ed... and that's exactly what Olde Mecklenburg Brewery has done... developed a venue that provides a lot more than beer and makes it family and dog friendly to boot.
