Thirsty Nomad Brewing

Thirsty Nomad is a small craft brewery and taproom in the Charlotte, NC area. We have a steampunk aesthetic with a healthy dose of geekiness. We love great beer, great friends, and great experiences. Starting 7/29, we're open Fridays 4pm - 10pm, Saturdays 12pm - 10pm, and Sundays 12pm - 8pm


If Femme Fatale is our every day drinking darker ale, then Bombshell is the yin to her yang. And, you know, gentlemen prefer blondes... I think I've gotten the clichés out of my system.

Bombshell isn't always a blonde ale, though. Sometimes she's a Hefeweizen, sometimes a Kölsch, occasionally a Pilsener. This beer is always light, low alcohol, has a restrained bitterness from Saaz and Nelson Sauvin hops, and pairs well with seafood and cheesecake. We sometimes refer to it as a "conversion beer".

That highlights another aspect about my approach to brewing: for me, each beer is an expression of an experience. Beer style is only one aspect of that experience. Beers, like people, are alive and adaptable to what circumstances demand.
