Anyone know anything about lost worlds brewing in Cornelius 

According to a guy on my neighborhood Facebook, they're about to close on a lease and target opening December-January timeframe. (We all know how that goes.) Sounds like somewhere along West Catawba near the interstate

Only Brad Panovich of WCNC could tweet this out the list of breweries per NWS zones and of course since we are in Greenville Spartanburg zone as well as Asheville this is what the brewery landscape looks like.

The one NJ is a head scratcher. I’ve thrown a lot of rocks in NJ, none have hit a brewery.

How in the heck is the Atlanta metro smaller in scope than Charlotte/WNC/Upstate?  I would expect that to be bigger just based on population.  In Charleston, SC (yes b/c i have to differentiate it from WV......) one of the breweries I went to back in April has already closed, so I'd say that 37 is =/- 1.

 320 in Philly metro and 3 in Jersey.   LOL.   I'm with you.  I grew up in PA and still have a lot of friends up there.  Can't say I ever heard one of them mention a NJ brewery.

GA has had very unfriendly brewery laws for a  long time.  Not brewery friendly at all (its slowly changing in GA).   Those numbers don't surprise me at all.

Anybody seen any Seattle beers in stores around here? I know Charlotte has a ton of great local beer and I enjoy drinking most of it, but every now and then I really just want a Rainier or something from a PNW craft brewery. I'm betting none of it gets shipped out here but has anyone seen any around?

Best bet in my mind is to check out Salud in NoDa. They bring in tons of beer from the West coast but if there's something in particular you're looking for talk to them about eventually ordering some

I miss Mac & Jack's african amber from my days out in the PNW.  I used to be able to find some Southern Oregon beers (Caldera) at Total Wine but that does not seem to be the case anymore from a quick search online. Deschutes is everywhere now too.

I kinda popped my craft beer cherry on Manny's Pale Ale. I really miss it.

(sorry about the imagery but I will always remember that beer)

NoDa Radio Haze: great

Radio Haze now year round!  And in cans!!!  Although recipe tweaked based on feedback. Releases Aug 23. Really interested to see retail price on 4-packs.

In other news, Middle James in Pineville "Grand Opening" is Aug 23 at 11am.  No word on any soft or unofficial opening before that. Honestly could be a disaster if they aren't open at all before that. I wish them luck.

Beer private labels - Breweries can create private label brands for retailers, which can be labeled with the retailer's name and sold exclusively to the retailer.

This one is kind of cool.  Was that against the law in the past?  Would that open the door to local breweries creating unique products to be sold by local sports teams or something?

I think they already do that, which is confusing. Birdsong sells "All Knight Long" at BB&T ballpark, for example.

2 beers per person - Beer/wine can be sold 2 at a time per person, except at college stadiums/arenas or events sponsored by colleges.  Also, mixed drinks only 1 at a time.

I fear this may become a real PITA in  some situations (it’s already a pain at the ballpark)

but otherwise good news.
