Even with nearly 50 breweries in the area, Charlotte-area breweries keep coming. Percent Tap House in Harrisburg is on the radar for the end of 2018, and Protagonist Clubhouse is coming to NoDa in 2019.
And the range of activities and offerings are exploding on the brewery scene as well, from complete fitness options (yoga, anyone?), to fun alternatives to beer like spiked seltzer at NoDa Brewing Co. and like gluten-free ciders at GoodRoad Ciderworks — the list goes on.
Check out this map of all 45 breweries around the Queen City, from University City out to neighboring spots in South Carolina.
