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've probably mentioned this before - I call our Chocolate Sweet Stout "Valkyrie" because that's what I called my home brewing operation. I decided that the "really real" brewery needed a different image. One more representative of me and what I want the brewery to become.

Valkyrie the beer is not intended to be a one note cocoa bomb. It's a blend of chocolate, coffee, and roasty notes, with a touch of wheat and lactose to give it a silky mouth feel and some residual sweetness. There's only enough bitterness to keep it from becoming candy. Though you could do worse than pour it over some vanilla ice cream.
