Charlotte’s biggest and oldest German brewery, The Olde Mecklenberg Brewery are bringing back their annual European-style Christmas markets for another festive year. Also known as a Weihnachtsmarkt (German for Christmas Market), you can enjoy hot, spiced Gulwehm (pronounced Gloo-vine) and OMB’s normal lineup of german pilsners, lagers, and more. Go for options from their popular Altbier, Copper, to their returning Yule Bock, a Christmas Bock that’s a rich amber color and has a smooth malt finish.
You can enjoy their lineup of fantastic beer at OMB’s magically transformed biergarten that’ll take on the look and feel of a Christmas market. There will be fire pits, traditional huts set up for shopping, dazzling lights, hot cocoa and festive treats, and even a Christmas tree.
There will be four magical weekends that you can attend, and the first one starts November 25th and runs through November 27th. The next weekend will be December 2nd, 3rd, and 4th. The third weekend will be December 9th, 10th, and 11th, and finally, the last weekend will be December 16th, 17th, and 18th.
Santa will make an appearance on November 26th from 2-5pm for photos. Every day, starting at 5pm, there will even be live music on Fridays and Saturdays, and you can find the full lineup on their socials.
