It’s also brewed in partnership with The Woody and Wilcox Show.

    Radio haze, our latest year-round beer, is brewed with a fantastic hop blend that leads to mostly upfront juicy and tropical hop aroma. The hop blend consists of Mosaic, Citra, Centennial, and Chinook hops. Sitting at 6% ABV, it’s a whole lot of flavor without much bitterness. It’s hazy and smooth with a medium body, from heavy use of Torrified Wheat and Oats.

  • Monday, August 26th. Mecktoberfest Märzeb Lager Release. Olde Mecklenburg Brewery. 11 am-9 pm. Get ready! Mecktoberfest is back on August 26th!

    Just in time for football season and everything we love about Fall!

    Mecktoberfest is wildly popular and beloved throughout the Charlotte region. As OMB’s Fall seasonal, Mecktoberfest is available in late August to November each year on draft (OMB Brauhaus & Biergarten and your favorite bars & restaurants in the Charlotte area), and in 6-packs and 12-packs at your local store.

    Rich and malty up front with a smooth satisfying finish, Mecktoberfest is a classic Märzen-style amber lager (known more popularly as the original Oktoberfest Bier). At 5.4% ABV and 24 IBU, Mecktoberfest is very well balanced; additionally, its strikingly beautiful, crystal clear burnt orange/amber hue (8.8 SRM).

    Mecktoberfest is in a small, elite class of beers who have won medals in international competitions on both sides of the Atlantic:
    GOLD – European Beer Star (Nuremberg, Germany)
    SILVER – Great American Beer Festival (Denver, CO)

    These competitions are the two of the most prestigious and difficult, with thousands of beers entered, hundred-member judging panels, and multiple days of blind tastings. To win two medals on two continents is an amazing feat and is the highest recognition of OMB’s dedication to quality and traditional brewing methods.

    Like all OMB beers, Mecktoberfest is all-natural — brewed in strict accordance with the famous German beer purity law of 1516: the “Reinheitsgebot.” In line with Reinheitsgebot, it was brewed using natural carbonation from the pure CO2 produced by the yeast during fermentation. We pull our brews from our lager tanks weekly, so you know it’s fresh. And, it was kept cold from production to delivery to you, because all beer should be kept cold to maximize freshness. We hope you enjoy this pure, fresh, cold beer. Prost!
