Wooden Robot

Map1440 S. Tryon St., Ste. 110,
Charlotte, NC 28203
  • Nightlife/Play


Head brewer Dan Wade continues to impress with the magic he creates from Wooden Robot’s foeders. Highlights include Swirl It!, a strawberry vanilla sour that left mouths dancing long after the beer was finished. In 2017, Wooden Robot also introduced its Réserve Series, including bottles of Dorée, a golden sour aged in chardonnay barrels, and Cérises, a cherry sour aged in red wine barrels. Both sold out in less than three hours, showing Charlotte can’t get enough of this brewery’s sour sensations.
