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


You don’t see much craft Malt Liquor. In fact, there’s no definition of it in the major hobbyist style guidelines. Our version is basically a scaled up version of a German light lager. Pale yellow, a little effervescent and in the 7% ABV range.

The name is a somewhat sideways nod to one of the great generals of the rebel fleet and his side gig in commercials the 1980s for a well-known malt liquor brand. The one that was apparently not named after a gun.
