Editorial Reviews

About the Author

A Charlotte native, Daniel Hartis did not start drinking craft beer until he was asked to write about Asheville's breweries for the Blue Banner, his school paper at the University of North Carolina-Asheville. He returned to Charlotte in 2008 and continued drinking beer, though he didn't start writing about it again until January 2011, when he started charlottebeer.com. On that site, Daniel writes about Charlotte's beer events and brewery news. When he is not drinking beer or writing about it, Daniel enjoys spending time with his wife, Airen, and their two children.

More About the Author

Daniel Hartis was born and raised in the small town of Waxhaw, NC, just south of Charlotte. He didn't truly experience good beer, however, until he moved to Asheville to go to school. While working for the school paper, he was asked to write about the many microbreweries that called the city home.

After graduating, Daniel returned to Charlotte with a newfound interest in craft beer. In the years to come, Charlotte would see brewery after brewery pop up, and in 2011 Daniel founded CharlotteBeer.com, a site devoted to Charlotte's breweries, beer bars, and events. While that site is devoted to Charlotte's current craft beer climate, Daniel has also extensively researched the history of the city's brewing scene, and in 2013 he wrote "Charlotte Beer: A History of Brewing in the Queen City." He followed that title with "Beer Lover's The Carolinas," which was published in April of 2014.

When he is not drinking or writing about craft beer, he enjoys spending time with his wife, son, and daughter.

Format: Paperback
With the exploding beer scene in Charlotte and the surrounding areas, it was only a matter of time before a history of craft beer in Charlotte was penned to paper. This extremely well-written book does not disappoint. It tells the story of the history of brewing beer in Charlotte without boring the reader with fact after fact. It is engaging, informative but not overwhelming. There are also a lot of great photos within the book that really bring the writing to life.

For a history covering all of the bases of brewing beer in The Queen City, I would definitely recommend this book!

Living in Charlotte, there's certainly plenty to say regarding this burgeoning craft beer city. But being able to read about the Charlotte breweries of yesteryear was extremely rewarding.

Not only will this book make you thirsty at every page turn, it will also leave you with a sense of remorse at not being able to sit in turn of the century Biergartens, or enjoy a pint at breweries which are no longer with us.

The author writes well and this quick read will give you a glimpse into a great city with a culture that has historically appreciated craft beer.

Format: Paperback
As a Charlotte local this was an interesting read. The author splits the book into different eras from pre-prohibition up until today and explains how the city's brew scene has evolved. He goes in-depth about each Charlotte brewery - past and present - and provides tokens of fun facts all along the way. It's essentially an extended feature story on Charlotte craft brewing. The language is straightforward and easy to read so I definitely had a few brews along the way.
