The Beer News

Here are this week’s news and events in the Charlotte, North Carolina area!

  • Wednesday, December 26th. Twas the Day After Christmas. Blue Blaze Brewing. 2 pm -9 pm. Twas’ the Day after Christmas & Santa’s Elves needed beer … they pulled on their stockings & headed out with cheer!

    They knew where to go – for they were Blue Blaze bound … with $10.00 pitchers they could each buy a round!

    The Elves enjoyed s’mores by the fire & live music inside …. sampling some of the best beers they’ve ever tried!

    At the end of the night, the Elves parted ways … with ‘hoppy holidays to all, & to all a great day’!
    From 2:30 – 5:30, enjoy live music by the talented violinist, Sandy Herrault. Enjoy authentic European style dishes from Strudelteig Food Truck. Wine, local craft cider, and non-alcoholic options are available.

    Your favorite Blue Blaze New England style hazy, SoBo Orangerine Hazy IPA, is back and in only a couple of sixtels! All naturally made from only water, yeast, malt, hops, and oranges. If our employee Christmas party is any judge, it won’t last long 😋
    We’ll also be offering beermosas in flutes or tulips made with this beer, only on the 22nd and 26th during our events those days.

    Our second annual, “Don’t Hate It, Donate It” drive starts today! If you’ve found yourself with unwanted gifts or items you’d like to donate, bring them to Blue Blaze! We are collecting everything from new to gently used apparel, outdoor gear, recreational items, toys, kitchen appliances, and more! All donated items will go to The Salvation Army of Greater Charlotte. The drive will run from December 26th – January 13th.

    If you have large items you’d like to donate but are unable to transport, schedule a pickup by visiting:
