Charlotte Brewery Hop Part 1 - Birdsong & Legion

The #1 thing that I regret not doing while I lived up in Charlotte?
 
Exploring the breweries more.
 
Sure, I had been to a handful of breweries but most of them I only ever went to once {with the exception of OMB and Unknown Brewing} and there are so many that I never made it to in the first place. They have so many breweries in Charlotte and it's hard to keep up with them all! But we made a valiant attempt to squeeze in as many as possible this past Saturday.
 
First up: Birdsong Brewing Company in the Belmont neighborhood and Legion Brewing in Plaza Midwood.
 
 
Birdsong was our first stop of the day and after two minutes here, I was ready to stay for round 2! I ordered the All Knight Long, a Belgian blonde beer named after the Charlotte Knight's baseball team. It was delicious!
 
 
They had a great seating area outside so we took our beers outdoors to enjoy. Downside? The sun was pretty warm and all of the seats in the shade were taken. They did have some big fans up on the side of the building that were helping to cool things down.
 
 
 
From Birdsong, we headed over to Legion Brewing in Plaza Midwood.
 
 
This bar looked packed from the outside until we realized that everyone was sitting outside to enjoy the beautiful day. It was much less crowded inside.
 
 
I ordered a Project Pils here and Patrick got the Slow Boat to India Session IPA. Once again, I had another winner! The Project Pils was light and refreshing. We sat in a balcony area that overlooked where they do all of the actual brewing.
 
 
Patrick found a Connect 4 game for us to play. Little known fact about my husband: he is the Connect 4 Champion and you should never play with him. He convinced me to play two games with him {I actually won one of them!} and convinced Laurel and Steven to play as well before we decided it was time to check out another brewery.
 
 
Fun Fact: they have plenty of board games to play while you're hanging out.
 
 
Next up: Wooden Robot & Triple C!

  1. My in-laws live in Charlotte, and we love visiting them! We tried out the Olde Mecklenburg Brewery last time we were there and loved it so much! I'm not even a big beer person, but I liked it. We want to do the Brews Cruise next time we come up!
