I heard this was the best brewpub in Charlotte but was somewhat disappointed. TacoMac has twice (at least) the beer selection. But at any rate, it had decent food, service and beer selection. Good, but by no means great.

Duckworths has about 60 taps with some really good beers to choose from and about another 50 bottles to choose from too. This place will definitely please the beer nerd and the prices were decent too. The food was average but then again, we went for "late night" food and werent going to anything decent either. The service staff were attentive and the atmopshere is upbeat too. From where I have been to in Charlotte, this place seems to have the best selection and atmposhere for the beer lover. I do have to get here for a lunch time service to give the food an appropriate meal.

A good selection of taps with cheap samplers. Not a lot of rare beers, but what was there was solid. Service was eh -- more interested in talking to the other bartenders than serving beer.

Great selection, except for the Bud light etc. Menu is great for folks that do not know craft beer and beer nerds like myself. Bartenders are pretty how do you say.... blah.

Large place with a ton of taps. No tap list when we stopped in, though, so it was hard to tell what was on though. Bar staff was helpful and patient, though and the manager, a hinebrewer, was very knowledgeable and helpful, with good recommendations of other places to try.

Originally reviewed: 9/24/10. Another place on the top of my list when in town for business. Didn’t try the food when I went, but I was here for beer anyways. All the food that people were eating around me looked decent though. The bar area is a pretty good size. Lots of tables around. TVs all around too for various sports, etc. There was a good number of college-aged crowd there that night. Pretty loud. The service was pretty weak. The bar wasn’t crazy busy, but I still was neglected even though about 3 people working the bar kept walking by. Ah well. Not here to make friends. Another disappointing thing, was that their website named a couple of beers from Olde Hickory that I came here specifically for, and they had neither. Boo. Their beer menu was also much out of date. I ordered 3 times before I made a ’hit’ and guessed something they actually had. Started off with a Founders Breakfast Stout which is amazing on tap. Lots of Founders represented, D-R, Sweetwater, some Belgian taps, Stone, Rogue, Allagash, etc. I had read on the forums that this was THE place to go in Charlotte for beer. Not so much for me.

Stopped by a couple of nights during a recent Ballantyne business trip. Large open space in the middle of a strip mall parking lot. Plenty of tvs all showing different sporting events. We somehow ended up in front of a girls high school basketball game, but plenty of other screens to watch. Interior is rather cold and industrial with 50+ so taps lined up behind the bar. Service was attentive at the bar, and somewhat disjointed at the tables, as some of my companions received incorrect beers. That said, selection was very good and specializes in local, state and regional offerings. Got both the Sexual Chocolate and Baltic Porter on tap among others. For food, we only got onion rings, but they were received well by our group. Prices were kept in the $6-8 range, but portion sizes were greatly affected by abv/rarity. Glassware was rather industrial and could be improved. Overall happy with the experience - not knowing the area, can’t say if there is anything else in the area that compares.

This is the best bar I’ve ever been to. I’ve seen bars with more taps but usually more than half of it are useless common beers you can find the grocery store. This bar is loaded with only amazing craft beers, best brews made in the US. They do special beer meals featuring a brewery. Last I went to was for Founder’s Brewing and it was the best night of food and drink in my life. Mr. Duckworth the owner actually described each dish to us and talked to everyone attending the meal all night. Food is well above average bar food and services are super friendly. Amazing!

Outstanding beer and bottle selection, plenty of NC beers on tap, Founders on tap and had Devil Dancer in bottles. Big open space not a great character although the beer was what I was there for. The food seemed good, my wife was happy with her Philly Cheesteak!! If I come back to Charlotte I’ll definitely give this place a visit again!

My first Visit to a NC beer bar.
Plastic strip mall ambiance.
Horrific service with no beer knowledge.
Decent selection, like the emphasis on local, not perfect beers.
Food absolutely terrible
Beers are small pours for big $$$
This place might rank on the regional scene, but nationally, internationally it ranks as a wannabe.
