This last Saturday was the Charlotte south end craft beer crawl. 8 breweries and bottle shops hosted craft beer lovers and a boozehound or two for sampling and an all around good time. The crawl started at 11am at The Unknowing Brewing Co. and ending at 9pm at The Common market.
We hoped in at about 1pm and our first stop was The Beer Growler. A great little “growler spot with tasting privileges” (As overheard from one of the employees.) with a food truck outside, gyros! Yum! The place was small but comfortable and the staff for knowledgable and kind. Nate, Basil, and I were a little overwhelmed by the amount of choses and in the end just told the bartender what we liked and she put together a flight for us. We enjoyed out stout flight and made new friends.
Our next stop was Sycamore brewing company where we enjoyed more beer and more good conversation and people watching. Basil got a lot of attention and sat in a lot of new laps!
After that we hit up Lenny Boy, Good Bottle, and Triple C Brewing before calling it a day. We had so much fun. Drank a lot of good North Carolina beer and met a lot of like-minded, craft beer loving people.
Thanks Historic South End Charlotte for putting together this awesome dog friendly event. Also thanks to all the breweries and bottle shops for hosting and supporting North Carolina brews. It was a blast!
Our next trip is coming up fast. In a couple of weeks we will be in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania! We have a lot of fun stuff planed but would love to hear your thoughts and suggestions. Let me know!!
Hope everyone is having a great Saint Paddy’s day! Remember to drink responsibly and if you do drink please don’t drive… your pets need you!
Travel well, nap well, live well!
