COVID-19 Safety & Precautions
OUR BRAUHAUS & BIERGARTEN ARE TEMPORARILY CLOSED
AS WE TAKE COVID-19 PRECAUTIONARY MEASURES
(Thursday, December 3rd) One of our team members in the restaurant here at OMB informed that he tested positive for COVID-19 today. Out of a substantial abundance of caution we’ve decided to close the restaurant temporarily as we go through the CDC contact tracing protocols, and ensure that anyone that might have come in contact with the employee also gets tested. Any employee that had contact with this team member must be cleared and test negative before returning to work. The employee in question did not have any contact at any time with any other employees or guests without both this employee as well as the employees and/or guests all wearing masks. As such, we feel that the risk of exposure is extremely low. However, we have decided to take these steps to be overly cautious. As an additional precaution, we will also be conducting a thorough sanitization of our facility over the next couple days. Once all employees are cleared and the sanitization is complete, we will reopen.
Thanks for your understanding. We will announce our reopening in a few days.
If you plan on visiting OMB:
As always, keep in mind that when inside you must wear a mask at all times unless you are at your table, and when outside whenever you are unable to social distance. This includes when in line or approaching the Bierhut or ‘Garten Grill, and when walking around if the Biergarten is crowded. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
When you walk through the doors of our Brauhaus, you’ll feel like you’ve been transported to a Bierhall somewhere in Cologne or Düsseldorf. High ceilings, warm wood paneling, and a lively community atmosphere make the Brauhaus a great place to pull up a chair and enjoy whatever fresh flavors OMB is pouring that day.
If food is part of the plan, the Brauhaus menu includes popular German fare such as Soft German Pretzels, Currywurst and a great selection of traditional sausages and sides. We also feature traditional American options including fresh salads, handmade pizza, wings and premium Chuck & Brisket blended burgers.
Bring friends and family to the Brauhaus and plan to stay a while – rushing your way through a meal and a fresh, tasty beer kind of defeats the purpose, right? We built this place so you can hang out here, so feel free to do so. However, while you’re here, please remember to drink responsibly. Safety always comes first, no matter how good the beer is.
We now take reservations during the following times:
MONDAY – THURSDAY : 11am – 7:30pm &
FRIDAY : 11am – 4pm
SATURDAY & SUNDAY: NO RESERVATIONS

The only thing better than drinking Charlotte’s freshest beer is drinking Charlotte’s freshest beer in the largest Biergarten in the Southeast. Reminiscent of the world famous Biergartens of Munich, OMB’s ‘garten is a natural oasis just minutes away from the hustle and bustle of “real life.” Set on eight (yes, eight) picturesque acres surrounded by 100-year-old oak, mature pecan and hickory trees, the wide-open spaces of the Biergarten make it an ideal place for families to eat, friends to meet, and even for pets to enjoy a little down time.
Whether it’s a beautiful spring day playing cornhole, or a cold evening huddled around a blazing firepit, you won’t find a better atmosphere in the Queen City to enjoy a fresh, cold beer. When you’re here you may wonder if it’s the beautiful surroundings that make the beer taste soooooo good, or if it’s the remarkably fresh beer that makes the Biergarten feel like the best place on Earth. Darned if we know the answer, but we invite you to do all the necessary research here until you figure it out.
You can also enjoy a limited-offering food menu from the ‘Garten Grill while relaxing outside.
VISIT THE BREWERY and TAKE A TOUR
If you’d love to experience America’s best brewery tour, you’re in luck – it’s right here at The Olde Mecklenburg Brewery! We’re honored to have received this recognition from USA Today, especially considering all of the great breweries operating around the US. Hopefully, the rest of the country now knows what we’ve known for years: Charlotte, NC is one of the best fresh-beer-loving towns in America!
*Please see free tour times listed below
When you tour our brewery, you’ll get a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the time-honored brewing processes that we use to create all our classic German-style beers. You’ll learn more about how we strictly adhere to the world-famous German “Reinheitsgebot” beer purity law of 1516 that requires beer to be made only of water, malt, hops and yeast. You’ll touch (and taste) our barley malt, smell our Bavarian noble hops, and learn how OMB beer is brewed, lagered and packaged. We invite you to come learn (and experience) all you can about Charlotte’s freshest beer.
