Lower South End has just got a little more medieval with this Germany brewery dated back all the way to the 16th century. Gilde is one of the oldest brewers in Germany–opened since 1546–who has been brewing in Hannover with a quality that adheres to the Germany Purity Law of 1516. That means they’re always sourcing the finest ingredients and use traditional methods to get their beer just right.
With all that being said, Gilde will be opening its first brewery outside of Germany, and we’re lucky enough to say that Charlotte will be their first home away from home. A clear testament to Charlotte’s growing and innovative beer scene.
At Gilde, you can expect traditional German beer and food like sausages. The beer, as stated don their website, “will combine the traditional German art of brewing with the creativity of the American craft beer movement,” and the German brewery himself came down to the Queen City this summer to train the team himself. They’ll be doing 6 traditionals: Lemon Radler, Pilsener, Miner Beer, Pale Wheat, Rooster, and Urbock as well as a rotation selection of craft beer.
The brewery will have an indoor seating area as well as an outdoor biergarten that we can’t wait to soak up the sun in during the warmer months.
