  • Friday, September 19th. CLT United ’19 Release. NoDa Brewing Company. 3 pm-10 pm. The Charlotte UNITE Festival is back once again! Queen City Unity presents: The Charlotte UNITE Festival. This multicultural event looks to unite people of all backgrounds in Charlotte to celebrate our diversity.

    To support this wonderful organization and their efforts, we brewed, CLT Unite ’19. This Grapefruit Hazy IPA, sitting at 6.5%, is hopped with heavy late and dry hop additions of Azacca and Cascade hops. It’s cloudy from all the wheat and oats used and also from fermenting on grapefruit puree, giving it juicy and zesty notes of deliciousness. 🍻Help us support a good cause and stop by to enjoy this IPA, while $1 from every pint sold will benefit Queen City Unity directly. 🙌🏻
