This is one of my spots! The only gluten free brewery in the area, they have a dedicated brew room. Selection of GF seltzers and BEERS! Also sell cans to-go. Owners family is celiac. Friendly staff, Great atmosphere, live music on Fridays.

Have a variety of celiac-safe brewed GF beer. I had a flight, and they were great. They also have a decent option to take some 4-packs home. They had some in the back, that weren't in the up-front fridge.

Total Wine and Lowes Foods in The Triangle will start carrying their brews soon!

There was a food truck (not gluten free), but gluten free food in nearby shopping centers.

Brewery with true GF and non-GF selections. Unfortunately, Raleigh’s true GF beer game is super weak. Fortunately, we have to travel this direction enough that we can bring canned beer home. Really nice to be able to order a flight of true GF beers. Multiple selections on tap and are also sold in 16oz cans. Liked all I tried, the hazey ipa is incredible. Not a place for eating GF. Hopeful that they’ll be able to branch out distribution a little closer to home.

Multiple GF beer options. The GF beer is brewed completely separate from others and the owners intimately understand Celiacs

Lots of options for gluten free beer. Tried a flight and really enjoyed all of them. They had lots of snacks and baked goods that were also gluten free.

GF beer. Not reduced. Good stuff. “Hell Yeah” IPA is a great go-to. Currently they have a light, basil-lemon dealy. Really good stuff. They also have pre-packaged snacks and sweets. Have been here multiple times, never any issues. Bring the pups!!

Armored Cow offers ("100% GF, not gluten-reduced") gluten-free beer on tap, cider, wine, and packaged gluten-free snacks (chips, cookies, nuts, cheese sticks). I'm not sure where/how the GF cookies were made. They also have gluten-containing beers. The GF beer is made in house. I believe the gluten-containing beer is as well. When I called, I was told that the beer is made in different areas and routed through separate taps, and the GF beers do have taps physically separated from the others behind the bar. I tried the pumpkin latte, a brown ale, which was decent. I mostly tasted coffee. It had a nice bright flavor, but I wish it had been more frothy. I only drank a little bit since I had not eaten and have a very low alcohol tolerance. They also had 3 other, mostly lighter GF beers including an IPA. I personally prefer dark beers. Overall, an interesting concept, and nice to have a place for the GF beer drinkers to go in Charlotte.
