At OMB, our unwavering commitment to fresh, pure, premium-quality beer isn’t just a marketing slogan. It’s our way of life.

Beer is like bread – similar ingredients, same need to be served as fresh as possible. As OMB’s founder says, “Not everything can be made local, but beer can and should be. Local beer is fresh beer, and fresh beer is better beer.”

OMB also strictly adheres to the oldest beer purity law in the world – the renowned German “Reinheitsgebot” which states that beer should only contain 4 ingredients: water, malt, hops and yeast. So that’s all we use at OMB – no wacky flavors, cheap ingredients, or added colors, and absolutely, positively NO SHORTCUTS. This commitment to purity extends to our packaging materials (glass and BPA-free cans) and traditional brewing methods. If you want to brew world-class beer, you’ve got to use the best ingredients and sweat the details; and you can’t let time or money get in the way.

Our goal is to do whatever it takes to deliver the highest quality, freshest beer imaginable to the Carolinas. You can call us control freaks. You can call us obsessed. You’d be right on both counts. But when you taste our beer, we think you’ll agree that it’s totally worth it. Prost!

We have excellent red and white wine choices, plus local ciders, available. Non-alcoholic options include Coke, Diet Coke, Sprite, water, tea, and coffee.

Can we bring decorations or outside food to OMB?

We do not allow decorations inside our Brauhaus out of respect for our other guests. We do allow decorations inside our Private Event rooms and limited decorations (like balloons) outside in our Biergarten. Please visit the Events page for more information about Private Events. We allow outside cakes/small desserts only. However, we charge a cake cutting fee of $25 inside the Brauhaus.

Can I bring my friendly dog?

Definitely, but dogs are only permitted in the Biergarten area outdoors and must be leashed. Since we strive to provide an environment that is fun and relaxing for everyone, we can’t allow unleashed dogs on our property or dogs that are barking, aggressive or in any way annoying or frightening to our other customers. If we need to ask you to take your dog home, please don’t be offended and understand that we are a business and need to set consistent rules that apply to everyone.

Is there a private event space at the brewery?

Yes! Our two Festhalle (party halls) are perfect for all types of occasions. Please email or visit the Private Events page for more information.

Does the brewery host live music?

OMB hosts live music every Friday & Saturday evening, and sometimes on Thursdays & Sundays. These weekly performances are by talented local musicians who live in the Charlotte area. We also host larger bands at our major OMB events, like OMB’s Anniversary, LoSo Block Party, Spring Fest & Mecktoberfest. 


Do you sell growlers?

We do. We have 37 oz growlers. Initially, you buy the growler bottle and the beer. When you return with your empty growler, we swap it for a full one and you only pay for the beer (similar to how propane tank programs work). We don’t refill your dirty (er, rinsed) growler at the bar (ick!). We thoroughly clean all returned growlers in the brewery using our $70,000 professional growler cleaning machine (the only one in the country!). This way, a dirty growler won’t taint the taste of our beer or your beer-drinking experience. We then refill the cleaned growlers professionally on our bottling line, with fresh beer of course.
