With St. Patrick's Day right around the corner, we can already feel the luck of the Irish. It's a day of celebration and (if we're being honest) a great reason to drink beer with friends. Even beer fitness lovers are likely to add more emphasis on "beer" than "fitness" on St. Paddy's Day, and we're 100% on board with that.

There's so much going on around Charlotte that Saturday, with bars throwing parties and bar crawlers swarming the city. We get that standing in long lines and being surrounded by crowds of people is not everybody's ideal way to celebrate this most sacred beer holiday. 

That's why we put together a list of Charlotte breweries that are having a party of their own, for anyone looking for a low-key (but just as fun!) celebration.

Check out these five non-bar-crawl places to celebrate St. Patrick's Day in the Queen City.
