Next year Ballantyne will have a new brewery. Olde Mecklenburg Brewery is opening a second location in the mixed-use The Bowl at Ballantyne. This new community will be focused on culture, community and sustainability, so the brewery is a great addition. The property is owned and operated by Northwood and they just broke ground.
Olde Mecklenburg Brewery Ballantyne or OMB Ballantyne will be the entrance and anchor of The Bowl. The plan calls for 14,000 square feet of indoor space and 7,000 square feet of patio space and a second-level balcony overlooking a biergarten surrounded by trees. The plan is kid-friendly with a zone specifically for families that includes a playground.
OMB has created quite a name for themselves with many local accolades from Creative Loafing, The Charlotte Observer, and The Charlotte Business Journal. In addition, they have won national awards for their tasty brews. They are truly an old school brewery taking no shortcuts and you can taste the results.
This new project is part of the Ballantyne Reimagined project where an office park is in process of being overhauled. This will be a great place to visit if you live near Lake Wylie as it is much closer than their original location near Woodlawn and I-77. The new location is easily accessible from I-485. The new location is expected to open in 2024.
