Our calendars may tell us it’s October, but the weather outside says otherwise. And just like our wardrobes, our taste buds are experiencing a delayed seasonal transition. 

For those of us still looking for a cold, refreshing beverage in these 70+ degree temperatures, our local beer of the week is the perfect choice.

​The Beer: So Fresh Wet Hop IPA  

Birdsong Brewing’s newest release, “So Fresh,” is a refreshing Wet Hop IPA featuring an intensely hoppy aroma with a tropical aroma and flavor profile. Fresh Idaho hops were overnighted for the making of this specialty IPA. With notes of grapefruit and pine, it’s the perfect transitional beer to sip as we move from summer to fall. And at 6% ABV, it’s a delightfully drinkable beer that all hop heads can enjoy!

The Brewery: Birdsong Brewing Co.  

Birdsong Brewing Co., located in Charlotte’s Belmont neighborhood, may be best known for their small batch THURsty THURsdays — but that’s far from all they have to offer. With 12 of their own taps, Lenny Boy Brewing kombucha, and Windy Hill Cider flowing, there’s definitely something for everyone. Birdsong also hosts a myriad of rotating food trucks to keep customers full as well, so feel free to spend your entire evening there. We sure do!

Walk in through the Birdsong Brewing Co. doors, and you’ll be sure to be treated like family. Supporting the community and creating one of their own, they’re a foundational brewery the Queen City is lucky to have.

Interesting on what’s going on behind the scenes? Free tours of the brewery can be scheduled through their website!

The Events: Yoga, Get Fit With Birdsong & More  

Tuesday nights at 6:30 PM, join in on yoga either in the warehouse or the rose garden around the corner. 

If you’re looking for a way to mix up your workout routine, keep your eye out for “Get Fit With Birdsong” events taking place throughout the city. Through partnerships with CorePower Yoga, Coreology in NoDa and many more, Birdsong Brewing Co. makes it possible to take classes at these studios for a free or reduced rate. As an added bonus, the Birdsong team brings samples of their classic beers for all participants to enjoy.
