475 years of German brewing heritage arrives in the Queen City

Authentic German beer, cuisine, and atmosphere

Brewmaster Willi Wallstab and his team make our beer according to the highest brewing standard, the German Purity Law enacted in 1516, using a German-made Caspary brewhouse. We chose Charlotte for our first brewery outside of Germany because of our unique connection to the city. Queen Charlotte, the namesake of Charlotte, hailed from our hometown and served as the Electress of Hannover.
