One of my good friends is coming to town this weekend and I would like to take her to some breweries. I know there are a handful of them here in clt. Ideally we would like to "brewery hop". Are any of the breweries in walking distance of each other? Would prefer not to drive for obvious reasons. Has anybody done this before?

Thanks in advance!

Olde Mecklenburg Brewery appears to be near the light rail. Maybe an option to hop?

I think your best bet is Olde Mecklenburg, Triple C and Unknown Brewing, all of which are relatively close to light rail stops in the Southend Area. You could also hit Helles and Dunkel (the old World of Beer) for additional selections.

There also appear to be some organized tours of the breweries that you can find by Googling.

Olde Mecklenburg and Sugar Creek brewing are next door to each other. Triple C and Sycamore brewing are walking distance (New Bern Station off Light Rail). Unknown is off Mint street, not a terribly long walk from the light rail.

NoDa Brewing and Birdsong brewing are over in NoDa, but not near the light rail (yet).

We did a brewery tour a few months back and had a great time.

Want to do the same thing!

Looks like several are close to the light rail line but not necessarily within walking distance from each other.

The only breweries within reasonable walking distance from one another are:

OMB - Sugar Creek

If you don't mind a little more walking, like a half a mile, you can easily do:

Triple C - Sycamore - Unknown

Or you can light rail, starting at OMB/Sugar Creek, taking Scaleybark station north to New Bern, going to Triple C, then light rail north again to east/west to either Sycamore or Unknown.

Birdsong, NoDa and Heist (in that order) are all about a mile apart from one another from south to north along N. Davidson. If you have a bike (or rent a bcycle) all of these are optional stops as well. Just drink responsibly if you ride!

What I would do:

Start at Sugar Creek walk to OMB.

Uber to Triple C (would be just a few bucks). Then walk to Sycamore and then Lenny Boy.

Light rail back to uptown 7th street station. 0.8m walk/uber to Birdsong. Another .8 walk/uber from Birdsong to Noda Brewing. Walk to Heist to cap off your day.

All in all, you probably wouldn't spend more that $10-$15 on Uber and hit all of Charlotte's breweries.

After Lenny Boy you could stop on the light rail at Carson and walk over to Unknown. When you get off at 7th street you could also hit up Duckworth's Uptown and take a breather/eat/drink before heading on to NoDa.

Oh yeah, I forgot Unknown! Definitely worth a stop as well.

There's a handful of them in NoDa too. The little district going north until 36th st has a few nice little places that also serve food.
