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.
It’s called the Dragon Moonshine Company and according to co-owners Chris Wagner and Richard Lavin, they started Charlotte’s newest distillery in order to put some fire in your belly.
We stopped by their distillery at 516 E. 15th Street, suite 14B (facing N. Davidson) for the launch of their first offering: an 80 proof Silver Rum.
