The late Andy Warhol once commented “Don’t think about making art, just get it done.” In Charlotte, North Carolina, Brian Egger and his partners at Montford Misfits are doing just that. They’re making art and it’s popularity has expanded so much you see their creations in restaurants, bars, breweries, and bottle shops all over the state and beyond.
You may not have heard of Brian or Montford Misfits, but if you’re a patron of craft beer establishments, you’ve likely seen (and even commented on) their custom beer maps that adorn walls and entryways everywhere.
With a wide array of comfort beers always on tap, as well as very little emphasis on the overly popular IPA’s that are readily available everywhere, the Three Spirits Brewery, located at 5046 Old Pineville Road in Charlotte, North Carolina is unique in a region teeming with exceptional breweries. But, it’s not just the beer that makes Three Spirits such a draw; it’s the story of the people behind the brews that ranks this brewery among our favorites.
With nearly 30 breweries in the Charlotte area, Queen City craft beer enthusiasts have lots of choices. But, sometimes the most interesting places to visit are well off the beaten path.
The Dreamchaser’s Brewery opened its doors in May 2016 just Southeast of Charlotte on the North Carolina / South Carolina border in the town of Waxhaw, North Carolina. We took a trip to Waxhaw to meet Neal and Anita Gimon about this craft beer way station that is quickly becoming a favorite for beer aficionados from both sides of the Carolina’s.
