Founded in 2009, The Olde Mecklenburg Brewery ignited the ultra-premium beer scene in Charlotte and has been at the forefront of the local market ever since. OMB adheres to the oldest purity guidelines in the world, the German “Reinheitsgebot.” This law states there can be only four ingredients in beer: water, barley or wheat malt, hops, and yeast. It’s “beer flavored beer” and it’s always fresh as OMB only distributes within a 60-mile radius. OMB is one of only nine craft breweries included on the Inc. 5000 list, and the only in North Carolina. OMB’s fall seasonal Mecktoberfest recently won a gold medal at Germany’s European Beer Star competition, and the brewery’s tour was named Best in the Country by the readers of USA Today.

Old Mecklenburg Brewery reviews
Great place for beer and food. Loved the sampler platter of sausage that my husband and I shared. Reminiscent of a true German beer garden!

I loved this place! The setting is beautiful and there is so much space outside to enjoy great weather. The beers were delicious and our server Caroline was helpful, patient, and kind. She MADE our visit to OMB! We didn't know which beers we wanted, and she gave us small pours so we could sample before choosing. Speaking of samples, the sample portions of the sausages were perfect! We loved all of them. And I must say, the lobster roll was the best I've ever had! It was so meaty, no filler and very light binding so it wasn't goopy. I HIGHLY recommend that lobster roll!
Love the brewery, been here probably a dozen times over the years. Beer Garden is big enough for you and a few thousand of your friends. Recently played the par 2 disc golf course they have set up out back, definitely a fun touch. Will definitely be returning!
