7 Must Visit Craft Breweries in Charlotte, North Carolina

Free Range Brewing

Your final stop should be Free Range Brewing, also located in the NoDa neighborhood. Free Range is one of the newest entrants to the Charlotte craft beer scene but is one that shouldn’t be overlooked. They are impressing locals with their flavorful farmhouse and sour ales. Their taps rotate regularly. I suggest ordering a flight to sample the broad range of their creative brewing process. If the little ones are in tow, Free Range is a great option with a play center filled with toddler toys and books.
