OMB sets date for new Charlotte brewery

Party for new OMB site

Olde Mecklenburg Brewery has announced a date for the party to celebrate its new, bigger factory off Old Pineville Road. The new facility, on 8.5 acres at 4150 Yancey Road, will open with a party at 3 p.m. July 19, including food, live music, giveaways and brewery tours. Admission is free, but you’ll need to pay for your food and beer. Go to the brewery’s page on Facebook for a chance to win a personal tour, VIP dinner and a few other perks (only for those over age 21, of course). Kathleen Purvis
