This is in Terminal B about half way down the terminal, pretty easy to find. A fairly narrow bar which goes back a fair distance. This place had about ten taps with mostly local NC beers, they had a couple OMBís on tap. Places was fairly busy at 10pm in the evening. Hard to get the waiters attention even though nobody else was trying to get his attention. Selection is probably the best in the airport, but not saying much. Prices are high. If I have time to burn I would go check out what they have on tap, if there is time to burn, otherwise probably not worth the effort.

Came here on 22.5.2016 due to a delay of my flight (5 hours!!). Very commercial place typical for an airport. Beer selection is not very strong, half of the people are drinking BUD. 11 $ for one pint, ridiculous. Beer taste very mediocre. Stay Away !!!

Yes, the beers are high here but after three days of dragging two know-it-all pre-teens all over NC and SC it was *exactly* what I needed! I would have paid $20 a beer.

A limited but decent selection of beer, with a focus on some of the local offereings. Food is OK

Decent by airport standards. Nice selection of Carolina beers. Unreasonable airport pricing though....

Typical lame-ass airport bar with typical outrageous airport pricing (9 bucks a pint) - itís nice that they have a couple NoDa beers on tap, but other than that there is nothing exciting - connected to the California Pizza Kitchen for some reason, so they present you a food menu as if it were their own, but in actuality it just lists pizzaís from the pizza kitchen - lots of exposes wires and ductwork hanging from the ceiling is super charming - bartender was pleasant enough for having to deal with annoying-ass airport customers - hey, itís a chance to get a craft beer at the airport - you canít really expect anything more from an airport bar, can you?

Smallish place in terminal B. Decent selection of local craft on tap, including the two best from NoDa. They also do a four beer sampler (fixed by the bartender) for $9. Food mostly seems to come from California pizza kitchen next door, which is odd given then name of the place.

Located in Terminal B. Taste of Carolinaís a pretty small, cookie cutter-looking bar connected to a California Pizza Kitchen. Thereís a couple of locals from Old Mecklenburg brewery on tap in addition to the regular cast of BMC stuff. Cans of Hop Drop ín Roll were also on sale for about $7, which is a great deal for an airport. My bartender was friendly. Overall, a decent pit stop as far as airport bars go.

Located in terminal B I stopped for Mid trip pizza from California pizza kitchen next door and a few beers here, 7 total craft on tap and a much bigger place the the one located in terminal d. Noda hop drop and roll was excellent and quinched my thirst. Will be back.

When I visited: Late March 2014. What I had: NoDa Hop, Drop íN Roll IPA (draught), Natty Greeneís Wildflower Witbier (sample), Dakota Smashed Pea & Barley Soup, Italian Chopped Salad and Original BBQ Chicken Pizza to split. What I liked: Plenty of seating, nice cozy table overlooking the runway and bar, quick and affable service, my girlfriend liked the music, well laid out beer and food menus, IPA was outstanding. What I disliked: Lukewarm food was mediocre and merely served as "fuel" for the day, drink options are solid for an airport bar but limited by conventional standards, no prices listed on the beer menu. Would I go back? If I ever have a layover at Charlotte Douglas again, yes. Overall Rating: 66
