Charlotte, NC #7

#1     Flying Saucer:   9605 N Tryon St, Charlotte, NC 28262 (no website)

Its in an unimposing Mall.   We almost missed it because you can’t see it from Tyron St.   The choice of beers is extremely impressive,   draft and bottled organised by country and ingredients.   Over 200 beers!   A large open room has the draft beer-taps behind the bar against the wall. You can see all the brewery supplied pump-handles.   The room is decorated with ‘plates’ hung from the walls and the ceiling.   This reminded me of British pub’s tendancy to line-up plates along the walls.   On a Thursday night the bar was full,   noisey with chat and laughter and a live band playing.   This was by-far the best of the 3 venues we tried.

#2     Southend Brewery: http://www.southendbrewery.com/

It has a substantial presence in a Mall,   inside there is a bar area, dining area stage and dance-floor.   It looks promising and the service is excellent.   We went there on Friday night around 10pm.   It was virtually empty,   no lively happening atmosphere.

#3     Hops:   http://www.hopsonline.com/home/openmenu.asp

This turned out to be more of a restaurant with some beers.   Polite service by young staff.   Nothing special.

All the brew houses provider ‘tasters’ where you can purchase a selection of ‘small’ drinks.   The photo below is a ‘taster’ from Hops:
