Triple C Brewing Company
If you ask your canine which brewery you should visit on a Saturday afternoon, he’ll likely suggest Triple C. The two hostesses know how to throw a party. Maggie, the black labradoodle, and Maris, the Anatolian shepherd-chow-husky mix, hang out here. It’s their turf, but they don’t mind sharing. 2900 Griffith St., 704-372-3212.
From The Force to The Dude Imbibes to the most recent addition, the highly recommended Chocolate Covered Pretzel Stout, Triple C head brewer Scott Kimball is a master at creating top-notch barrel-aged beers.
