The ever-forward thinking city has an innovative way to nosh and imbibe while not having to worry about driving. Charlotte's light rail system has brokered the development of a corridor of restaurants, breweries and other watering holes best explored by rail. Notable stations to stop in for a bite and a pint include New Bern, Bland and 36th Street. Craft beer is on a roll in the fast rising craft city. Since 2012, the number of breweries in the Charlotte area has grown from seven to 40 breweries with 20 more under construction. The Charlotte-Mecklenburg County and region accounts for approximately 20 percent of the 175-plus breweries in North Carolina. With brew houses scattered throughout Charlotte's electric neighborhoods that flow from the city's South Carolina suburbs to the banks of Lake Norman and beyond, the region's beer scene is one to celebrate. Charlotte neighborhoods are hotspots for breweries. Check out The Olde Mecklenburg Brewery in Lower South End (LoSo). The authentic German beer hub moved into an 8-acre biergarten in 2015 and is tucked on a busy block that also houses Sugar Creek Brewing Company—the city's first Belgian-inspired craft brewery. Stay on the block to explore a cidery, distillery, social house and escape room. Just down the street, more taprooms with top-notch pours, including newcomer Brewers at 4001 Yancey. The districts of NoDa and Plaza Midwood (have been a hot bed for breweries since 2011, when three acclaimed spots opened in rapid succession: NoDa Brewing Company (try its medal-snagging Hop, Drop 'n Roll IPA); Birdsong Brewing Co., proclaimed famous for its Jalapeño Pale Ale; and Heist Brewery, touted for its creative craft beer- cocktail combos. At Plaza Midwood, have a yoga workout... with your beer. A magnet for young professionals, bustling South End overflows with craft beer options and brew lovers who spend leisure time with a pint or two. Triple C Brewing Co., Lenny Boy Brewing Co. and Sycamore Brewing bring their "A Game" to South End. Triple C Brewing offers a relaxed ambiance with its sunny patio and cold brew. Lenny Boy Brewing Co. keeps guests coming back with an agenda of sours and kombucha. At Sycamore Brewing you can have a pint of award-winning Southern Girl Blonde lager.
