Lenny Boy Brewing originally opened its doors in 2011.  It closed for renovations and opened again in 2013. This is the only certified organic brewery in North Carolina, and was one of the first in the entire southeast to brew Kombucha and Wild Ales.  Kombucha is a fermented beverage made from sugar, tea, water, and a culture of bacteria and yeast.  Being certified organic, Lenny Boy goes through a rigorous process regulating the ingredients used as well as the processes to make their brews. The south end brewery Lenny Boy has a yoga club that meets on Saturdays at 1:00 and a running club that meets each Sunday at noon.  

Charlotte's Beer Scene

In 2009, Charlotte, North Carolina was the largest city in the United States without its own brewery. Today, Charlotte is one of the fastest growing cities in the entire nation and has a craft beer scene to match.   Charlotte and its surrounding areas are currently home to fifteen breweries with another dozen on the books to open in the very near future.  The breweries in the Queen City, as Charlotte is efficiently called, are a diverse group providing something for every beer lover.  Whether you are seeking traditional German or Belgium styles, or looking for popular IPA’s, Charlotte has you covered.  You can even find experimental styles, barrel-aged selections, sours, organic beers, and other unique creations for those with a more adventurous palette.  Craft beer is becoming a part of the very culture of the city, and each and every brewery prides itself on the quality of the beers.  The Charlotte beer community is a closely knit group, even forming the Charlotte Brewers Alliance to help the city’s breweries tackle common obstacles.  It is not uncommon to find beers from other breweries to feature beers from other breweries in their taprooms, and work together on collaborative projects.  This unity is one of the major reasons the craft beer scene in Charlotte continues to gain national notoriety. 

Over the next several weeks CLTBEER will take you on a tour of the Charlotte area breweries. Stay tuned, next week we hit the South End of the Queen City and highlight The Olde Mecklenburg Brewery. Prost!
