The Beer News

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

  • Wednesday, July 17th. Pilot Batch Release: Island Columbus Hopper. Pilot Brewing. 2 pm-9 pm. Taste a little bit of island life with the release of our next Island Hopper, this time showcasing the Columbus hop. New Pilot Batch beer means $3 Goblets on release day!

    The Columbus hop is a dual purpose hop with intense earthy and faint citrus character. Typical alpha: 14.0-16.0%. Very pungent aroma, clean bittering properties.


  •  Thursday, July 18th. Hazy Sunday Can Release! Triple C Brewing Company. 4 pm-10 pm. Just in time for the 3rd Annual Jimbo-Palooza, Hazy Like A Sunday Morning IPA returns in cans and on draft! A portion of sales from this collaboration with Jimmy CORE Foundation will go back to the charity! Join us Thursday for the beer release and Saturday for Jimbo-Palooza and don’t miss this all Citra Hazy IPA!


  • Friday, July 19th. Beer Release: Purple Blaze Common Lager. Blue Blaze Brewing. 2 pm-10 pm. Join us for a re-release of Purple Blaze Common Lager (5.5%) on draught only. Crisp and refreshing all-American steam/common style lager that’s balanced & smooth with a medium body and sassy fruity, hoppy notes. It’s uncommonly good!

    We made a bit larger batch this time around. Swing by the taproom from 2:00 – 10:00 for a pint!


  •  Friday, July 19th. Caprese Release. NoDa Brewing Company. 3 pm-10 pm. Join us July 19th for a balanced blonde ale, sitting at 5% ABV. This beer is designed to be the beer version of a Caprese salad. Fermented on blanched tomatoes and brewed with sea salt to mimic the brine of mozzarella cheese and basil, this beer is surprisingly refreshing and unique! ‎🍻It’s a half-barrel batch, so make sure you try this brew as quick as you can!
