South End is proud to be a sponsor of Charlotte Craft Beer Week 2012 and we hope that when you think of Craft Beer in Charlotte, South End is the neighborhood that comes to mind. Starting back in 1988, the Dilworth/South End neighborhood pioneered breweries in Charlotte with the launch of Dilworth Brewing Company in what is now Sutton House on the corner of East and Kenilworth. In the mid 90’s, South End Brewery and Smokehouse opened in what is now Icehouse in Atherton Mill. The equipment from South End Brewery is now used by OMB and in early summer South End will welcome Triple C Brewing Company.
Apart from the soon to open brewery, South End offers a wide range of craft beer offerings from bars and restaurants to retail outlets. Mac’s, The Liberty, Common Market, Healthy Home Market, Icehouse, and World of Beer are just a few of the establishments who are committed to offering great craft beer selections.
Charlotte Craft Beer Week will be an incredible celebration of craft beer throughout all of Charlotte, and we are excited for the many events happening in South End. In addition to the great events you will want to make certain to get your commemorative CCBW and South End tasting glass and pint glass koozie (only available in South End). There will also be a very limited supply of branded growlers so stay tuned for more details so you can be one of the 50 people to get a growler.
