CHARLOTTE, N.C., June 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- For the summer traveler looking for something slightly off the beach path, The Olde Mecklenburg Brewery has premium craft beer and pure outdoor enjoyment that belongs on your summer bucket list. This North Carolina craft brewery, located just south of downtown Charlotte (LoSo District), specializes in brewing authentic, refreshing German-style beers. OMB takes the world famous German beer purity law very seriously. Known as the "Reinheitsgebot", it says that beer should be made using only water, malt, hops and yeast. It's not only what guides OMB, but also cause for a weekend celebration.
July 22-24 The Olde Mecklenburg Brewery pays homage to the Reinheitsgebot and invites all to eat and drink in their authentic Biergarten setting for this three-day fest. Mecklenburger Lager (a Munich-style Helles beer) which took a short sabbatical makes a special return to usher in the celebration.
"This is a time we celebrate the purity law that forms the foundation of our brewing philosophy," said John Marrino, owner of OMB, "and we join with brewers and others around the world on the same weekend to mark the anniversary of this 500-year tradition."
Beer enthusiasts who find they can't make a mid-July commitment to visit shouldn't cry in their craft brew. OMB's indoor/outdoor space has a festive vibe anytime, making this the perfect summer spot for day-trippers and weekend travelers alike. Free tours are offered on weekends at 2, 3 and 4 o'clock.
