Edge City Brewery | #squadgoals Berliner WeisseMay 12, 2020 | Alexis Dickie
Opening a new brewery in Charlotte, North Carolina, is already a risky business move. In a city with more than 30 breweries, it’s hard to stand out and generate the revenue and clientele necessary to survive.

Brewery Showcase | Salud CerveceriaMarch 20, 2020 | Alexis Dickie

Heist Brewery | Blurred Is The Word IPAApril 24, 2018 | Barry Barz
There comes a time where the lines between “I’ll take another one of those” and “wow, what was the ABV on this again?” become blurred. We’ve all been there and I’d have to say it is a rare feat that is ultimately welcomed. Of course, when browsing a draft list or tap menu, you may take a glance but it’s rare you care to remember the ABV once you order and take a sip or two. Heist Brewery has successfully delivered this experience time and time again with their periodic staple, Blurred Is The Word. Read More

The Unknown Brewing Co. | Vehopciraptor Triple IPANovember 4, 2016 | Johnathan Pylant 1
Only weeks ago, The Unknown Brewing Co. released Vehopciraptor, a triple IPA straight out of the Cretaceous Period. This is the third time the Charlotte, North Carolina based brewery has released Vehopciraptor into the wild, but the first time it has done so as a 90 IBU triple IPA. One of The Unknown Brewing Co.’s most popular beers, with good reason, it is so incredibly well-balanced, yet bold, that some of us wondered if its really even a triple IPA.
