If you haven’t heard already, we’re turning 7 this Saturday! It’s been a privilege to serve the Charlotte community delicious unfiltered beer since 2011 and we couldn’t be happier about our upcoming festivities.

Long before today, before Saturday, before you even sit down at the bar for Harry Potter trivia tonight, the minds behind Birdsong Brewing were concocting up recipes and ideas to make our company special. A lot of quirky personalities came together to ensure that from the very beginning we’d not only have beer forever but that we’d serve as a home away from home for everyone who walked in our doors.

So, here are some fun facts about us to get you in the mood to celebrate with us this weekend:

+ When possible we use only the most local, fresh adjunct ingredients for our beer. That includes over 40lbs of jalapeños for the pale ale!

+ One of our first beers, “Minimum Wage,” was introduced alongside Lazy Bird Brown, Free Will and Higher Ground. Early birds to our nest might remember this on tap!

+ We have 39 staff members, 2 of which are new this month. Our OG crew from the early years remains (mostly) intact as well. Our staff includes past bar regulars, college pals, jugglers, clowns, climbers, travelers, writers, artists, dancers, chefs and musicians.

+ Once, we said we’d never can our beer. How wrong we were (and isn’t that lucky for you?!).

+ We call our little yellow birdie “Cheesit” because he looks like a Cheez-it cracker.

OH, and you can try the pre-Rum barrel Rich Girl this THURSty THURSday! It’s yum city.
