The wait is over.
Get ready Charlotte, because coming to Lower South End is one of the oldest brewers in Germany. Gilde, a German brewer has been brewing since it opened in 1546, and are expanding to the states for their second location! Their concept, a Brew house and Bier garten has grand plans to open in Fall 2021. And just in time for Oktoberfest too! We can’t wait!
Gilde is known for their high quality and traditional way of brewing, using only barley, hops, and water, which have been approved by the German Purity Law back in the 16th century. They have a great selection of beer on the menu, from standard Pilsners made with a hint of hops to their Pale Wheat made with aromatic hops, to a Lemon Radler, which is natural, unfiltered, and brewed from %50 beer and %50 bittersweet lemonade.
The brewery project here in Charlotte aims to combine these traditional German beers with the creativity of the American craft beer scene, so we’re excited to see what they’re going to be creating this year. You might be wondering why Gilde has decided to plant its roots here in Charlotte, but the city is named after Queen Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz.
Keep track of their socials for all information on their opening plans and the address for South End when it’s released.
