Charlotte’s biggest and oldest German brewery, The Olde Mecklenberg Brewery are bringing back their European-style Christmas markets after 10 years strong. 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. 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 this Friday, November 26th and runs through Saturday and Sunday as well. The next weekend will be December 3rd, 4th, and 5th. The third weekend will be December 10th, 11th, and 12th, and finally, the last weekend will be December 17th, 18th, and 19th.
This Friday at 11am they’ll be doing the special holiday release of their Yule Bock, from 12-9pm the holiday vendors will be set up, and from 4:30-8pm Santa will be around. Their latest post on Instagram goes into all of this weekends timestamps.
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.
