Breweries in Charlotte Continue to Grow. Here’s Where They Are.

Hops, skip & a jump away

North Carolina ranks ninth in the country in craft breweries with a total of 359 breweries across the state, according to 2020 statistics from the Brewers Association. With an annual production of 912,589 barrels (that’s 3.6 gallons per drinking-aged adult), you could say that we’re drinking alright here in the Tar Heel State.

The state had just shy of 60 breweries in 2011 and jumped to the aforementioned number in less than a decade. After the opening of Salty Parrot Brewing Company in The Gold District in April, the Charlotte area is now home to 69 of them bad boys.

Here’s an easy-to-follow guide to finding the most popular economic manufacturers so that you can get to them while you brewery hop your way through the weekend with your married friends who had to bring their kids because there was no last-minute sitter but that is okay because the toddlers will be preoccupied with the dogs while you slosh the IPAs.
