I stumbled upon something pretty special in The Olde Mecklenburg Brewery…a German brewery and biergarten that happens to serve pizza! I could have thought they tried to have too many different things going on in one restaurant (especially when I saw a yoga class going on the biergarten), but I was just pumped to have many of my favorite things in one glorious place. The only problem was that I wanted to enjoy some German cuisine – besides the 33 oz. beer – as well as pizza. While there were some wurst options, I was happy to start with their tasty soft pretzel as a prelude to my pizza.
The Olde Mecklenburg Brewery has a few different pizza options, and I ordered their Butcher’s Block made up of prosciutto, capicola, salami, and sausage with their house made tomato sauce and mozzarella and parmesan cheeses. I liked the way their crust turned out because it had some spots of very light charring but was soft overall. The pizza was really loaded with meat that had some good spice too it. The sauce and cheese were both good but didn’t stand out near as much as the meat. The Olde Mecklenburg Brewery is definitely a place worth checking out on the west side of Charlotte.
