It may not have enough breweries to compete with the likes of Portland, but Charlotte’s craft beer scene is definitely worth talking about. The thirst for craft beer has continued to grow since the first brewery opening in 2009, and taprooms are more popular than ever in the city. With locally-produced beer enjoying such popularity, it’s no wonder that the guys at Free Range Brewing have started following a “farm-to-tap” ethos in everything they do. Their constantly rotating beer selection features a range of local ingredients.
