BOB Awards Winner's Guide

Resident Culture

Map2101 Central Ave.
Charlotte, NC
  • Nightlife/Play


It was just a year ago that we were lauding Resident Culture as the best new brewery. The quick rise to best overall is thanks to head brewer Chris Tropeano’s mastery of many styles. While Resident Culture’s hazy IPAs are the talk of the town, it would be unwise to overlook the brewery’s lagers, pilsners, and sours. Bonus points for the best label designs in the city, too.
