Visited on Sunday 15/02/15 just after 7.45pm.
Located by the íDí gates this was a typical airport set up, open plan bar and dining area with half a dozen bar stools, some tables inside and more outside the bar area. 5 or 6 beers on tap, some from OMB, plus a couple of cans of note.
Mine was a flying visit, 5 minutes to be precise inbetween a delayed flight and a re-booked connection, so I made the bar tender aware and he served me promptly.
I just grabbed a can of the NoDa Hop Drop to save time. Not sure about the cheap prices mentioned below, this set me back a typically expensive airport price of $9.73 + tip. Perhaps thereís a happy hour when beers are $6 a can ?
None the less, not a bad bar as airports go.
Pretty simple setup in terminal D. Some NC locals on tap, decent food, good service. Not much else to say really.

Swung by before a flight. Had 5 or 6 taps total, couple of cottonwoods and Carolina Gold - rounded out with macros. Otherwise, open airport type location. I noticed that many of these beers were available at most airport locations.
52 = ★ (Borderline whether this should be on the site)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.

Typical airport bar. Four taps, but they also carry a wide assortment of the bottles, which arenít listed until the back of the menu. The experience isnít anything special save for the fact youíre at the airport and actually have a decent beer in your hand.
Probably the best option for beers in Charlotte airport. Locals from OMB and Catawba were available on tap. Cans of Hop Drop ín Roll were only $6, which is pretty unbelievable value for an airport bar. Better yet, the Hop Drop ín Roll I settled on had been canned less than a week previously. Service was friendly, my bartender was happy to charge my phone for me. I didnít eat, but the food looked OK. Overall, a good place to spend a layover.
I was dropped off at the airport 3 hours early, thanks to the gf family want to get rid of us, so thankfully I spotted this place to kill some time. The atmosphere is a an airport bar, enough said. They had 10 drafts, no bottles. Decent selection of widely available stuff (bl, sam, harp, stella) and 4 draft only locals. Staff was local yocals, semi-nice but didnít know squat about beer.
Better than most airport bars, and you can tick some local craft. I would for sure go back when Iím at the airport.
Good for an airport brewpub. Had four of their own on tap and about a half dozen of their bottles. The waitresses seemed to know what they were talking about - even heard the words high gravity mentioned when describing their Frostbite. Food is a notch above the typical Airport grub fare of overpriced sandwiches etc. Had Lime Infused Grilled Chicken and Brie - very good. Seek out if you have an hour to kill in Charlotte. Decent wide ranging selection of their brews - something to please all palates.
Two of their four craft taps were out when I was here so only had a chance to try two. Nothing wonderful for beer lovers but itís something for an airport at least. The Foothills Hoppyum was surprisingly decent.
