With a new brewery opening almost every week here in the Queen City, one Lake Norman-based company plans to change things up!

D9 Brewing just announced plans to open their second location in the heart of Uptown.

Instead of going with the traditional setup, they’ve decided to take advantage of our beautiful outdoors by building the brewery around a 5,000 square foot concert pavilion and beer garden.

The new facility will include a 900 square foot lounge with 5 brewing barrels and a coffee bar! The lounge portion will feature a wall of garage-like doors that will open to the beer garden on sunny days.

The brewery’s location will be between E. Stonewall St. and 277 at the end of S. Alexander Street.
