With over 20 breweries in the Charlotte, NC area and another 20 or so in various stages of planning, finding the time necessary to experience the best craft beer that the Queen City has to offer can be daunting. North, South, East, and West, beer enthusiasts can spend more time travelling to the various taprooms than getting to partake in their delectable delights.
Fortunately, some local craft beer aficionados have setup a system to take the guesswork out of brewery visits. Ben Singleton, Liz Nutter, and Nick Campo recently launched Charlotte Brewery Tours with the goal of showing off the best beer and taprooms in the QC.
They have a slight local craft beer collection, but beer isn’t the draw. Their entrees are enough to satisfy the most discriminating taste.
One small business is smaller than most. In fact, it is tiny by comparison to similar concepts throughout the Carolina’s. The York Chester Brewing Company, founded by Jarvis Roberts and his wife Julia, is a nano brewery that opened it’s tiny taproom in one small corner of the Riverside Complex at 1500 Riverside Drive #250 in late 2016.
If the name Kid Cashew confuses you, don’t fret. I asked one of the staff about where this unique moniker came from and found out that this Greek / Mediterranean restaurant’s name has a story.
Names aside, this is a fanatic restaurant with some of the most friendly staff you’ll find anywhere in Charlotte.
Kid Cashew Restaurant: 1608 East Blvd, Charlotte, NC 28203
