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


I once made a big, darkish, Germanic wheat beer - a Weizenbock, technically. And my brother, naming genius that he is, suggested we call it Drunkelweizen. So we did. And then we took several bottles camping, and we drank it all. Those are the kinds of beers I keep making.

We were going to call this beer “Hobo” because we’re kind of crass. But it didn’t really site right from a marketing standpoint, so we changed it to Vagabond. It just sounds better.

The beer itself is dark amber, rich and malty and sweet, and clocks in at around 10% ABV. A sitting by the campfire kind of beer.
