    Drinking Beer in Charlotte

    Piggy backing on something near Legion in SouthPark would seem like a no-brainer to me. Don't need a huge space but something in Morrison Village, Ski Slope, Zom, Sharon Square, Piedmont Row would kill it if done right. You can't really do the grungy Salud/Brawleys thing in SP but the Good Bottle vibe would do great (I think). Personally I would love to see Taco Mac blown up and divided into like 3 different places....I think they still have some 4 Friends beers still in rotation. Ugh

    I wonder if he is struggling with the surge of new craft places opening up. I know Chris and one of his investors but I hate to ask. When it opened, he was the only place in SouthEnd to grab a bottle and a pint. There was talk a few years ago about another location in SCLT but that came and went. They made most of the money on drafts but the influx of placesin SE to get a craft brew has to hurt. Opening up the space to more tables and HEX was probably an attempt to get bigger draft crowds (and to share rent) but may have backfired after Home Economist and Common Market closed. People scrounging around for beers and getting frustrated the shop is lacking now...just might do their drinking elsewhere. Or - Maybe he is selling so much beer he can't keep in on the shelf? He has very little storage in the back and if stuff is moving so quick...might be a good problem! I still think his concept would be better suited to location in SouthPark. We have no place to get craft (beside Whole Foods) and no place like good bottle to get a drink after work at. Sure Brawleys is close but nothing in SP proper. A spot in something like the new ZOM apartments would be killer IMHO.

    Another bar/restaurant bites the dust

    Legion Version 3 would do a killing at that spot.

    IMHO, Bang Bang is THE most over-rated place in Charlotte. Never been more under-whelmed at a place with so much hype. So much so that I wouldn't go back, especially at their prices.

    Heist's IPA are being recognized across the southeast as some of the best hazy New England style IPA's in the state. Citraquench'l is the 12th highest rated American IPA on beer advocate (And Blurred is the Word is top 100 as well). Having a beer ranked like that against the who's who of breweries is quite impressive! Not everyone likes the IPA's (like Jayvee) but Heist should be recognized as a big time brewery, not just for CLT...but for the region.

    Correction: it’s a fantastic beer!! Glad I got a 4 pack this afternoon as they just sold out. The fruit in a milkshake ipa makes this one very unique and delicious!

    ZOM apartments next to the mall is erecting a crane onsite today. This property is moving fast. Construction in the Legion taproom is moving at a very fast pace. The site is abuzz every morning before 7am with many workers onsite

    Huh? Behind the facade is the chapel (or whatever you call it...I don't go to church). The backside is a giant day care facility but isn't big box at all. My daughter went there for years so I was in building 5x a week.

    Sad news that Legion's Head Brewer Alexa Long is leaving to move to Chattanooga. She was their head brewer from Day 1 and has created a lot of fantastic beers for them. Juicy J has put them on the map and most every bar in town!

    WTF? That "ranking" is total trash.

    Ahhhhh memories of the time I ran two miles, ate a dozen KK in 7 minutes and ran two miles back to the bell tower...then sat in a sugar coma for the ride back to CLT.

    I 3rd this on McD's. I am not much of a fast food guy but had a road trip this weekend so tried out the new quarter pounder. Its better than the original for sure. Nice and juicy and big step up on texture.

    Church is still in the plan. If you look closely at above picture two, you can see it as gray building. It will basically be hidden from Morrison.

    If I remember correctly, that spot was always marketed as office/retail rather than restaurant (even though it looks identical) which I always thought was odd. So maybe they were targeting something like a Dr Office?
