With a motto like “Craft Beer & Beer Food,” this NoDa corner bar means you’re in for a treat. This place has it all: beer on tap, a Gaskell & Chambers beer engine (a hand pump used to get beer out of a cask), beer education classes on the first Tuesday of every month by a Certified Cicerone, and so many more beer-related reasons as to why this should be your next stop. Plus, free popcorn! So at least you'll have something to do while you wait for your growler to be filled. You know, besides testing out the beer.
Cotswold (& other locations)
The pizza is great, but the beer selection is the standout. With over 40 beers on tap, The Pizza Peel has been serving Charlotteans IPAs, ciders, wheats, sours, and everything in between since 2008. The Cotswold location is known to Charlotte beer lovers for its impressive selection, but don’t discount the offerings at the Plaza Midwood spot. Ciders, Belgian-style ales, porters, specialty bottles, and seasonal offerings await.
