Charlotte Beer Garden Was Just Named The #1 Beer Garden in America by USA Today


Charlotte’s favorite beer garden has just been named the best in the nation by USA Today.

According to the publication’s new Best Beer Garden of 2022 report, South End’s Charlotte Beer Garden was ranked #1, beating out Virginia Beach’s New Realm Brewing (#2) and Raleigh’s Raleigh Beer Garden (#3).

The ranking was determined by editor research, industry expert input, and a general popular vote.
