Great read, perfect gift for any beer lovers in your life.
Y’all. Food. Books. History. AND Beverages.
Don’t have to ask me twice.
This past year I’ve visited a handful of breweries and each one has been different in their philosophy and how they brew. So I wasn’t surprised that Charlotte has such a colorful history of breweries. I wasn’t aware that there was a boom of breweries not too long ago and then a bust where many ended up closing. I enjoyed reading about them (and kept thinking, “oh! I’ll want to go visit that one!” only to read it closed like 10 years ago. A day late and a dollar short).
My favorite part of the book was when Hartis started discussing the breweries that still exist in Charlotte. Learning their histories, influences and the types of beer they brew were intriguing and not only do the beers sound tasty to try, the locations of each of the breweries and designs seem to be pretty awesome as well.
Another aspect I like about these books is they aren’t overwhelming or un-readable. You know those history books that are the size of a small country with a font size of 2? Yeah, you won’t find that here. This kind of read like a conversation with a friend who loves history and beer.
If you’re a home brewer (or know someone), a fan of beer, love interesting history, the Carolinas or just learning, you’ll appreciate this look into a piece of Charlotte. Because doesn’t a Brew Pub Poets Society sound so much fun?! I definitely look forward to visiting places like The Olde Mucklenberg Brewery, Triple C, Bird Song and other Charlotte Breweries if I ever find myself in North Carolina again!
Are you a fan of local history?

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