Thirsty Nomad Brewing

Thirsty Nomad Brewing is one of Charlotte's newest nano breweries. Our taproom is cozy, stylish, and laid back - when you walk in our door, you're in a different world. Our beers are uncompromising and diverse. We change our tap list to capture the essence of Charlotte's moods and the whims of our brewers. We have games for adults and kids alike from Zombie Dice to Fluxx. Our patio is a tranquil place to sip a Saison, Pale Ale, Chocolate Stout, or any of the 10 beers we have on tap. We also carry a small selection of wine and soda when you're looking for something different, and plenty of snacks when you're feeling peckish. If you're looking for that place to come as you are, relax, and enjoy a hand crafted beer, Thirsty Nomad Brewing is your new home.
