ABOUT US

TAKING IT BACK TO SMALL BATCH

After a dozen years in the beer industry and over six years as a professional brewer, training under award winning breweries such as: Hardywood Park, Left Hand, and NoDa Brewing Company, Rachael decided it was time to showcase everything she has learned on a nano scale. Together with her husband Jeff, a professional pilot, they’re taking it back to the small batch!

 

A slight play on words, Pilot Brewing references aviation, but more importantly focuses on small batch experimental beer. Combined with our 3-barrel Pilot system, and our half-barrel “Co-Pilot” system, Pilot Brewing will not focus on any core brands, but instead endeavor to expand the boundaries of craft beer by brewing original recipes that represent traditional and experimental styles.

Pilot Brewing will have a strong focus in sourcing local ingredients as well as maximizing community involvement within our brewing practices. We are very excited to be the local neighborhood nano-brewery.

In 2019 Pilot brought home two medals at the Great American Beer Festival in Denver, Colorado.  One Silver medal in the Contemporary Gose category for Mimosa Gose and one Bronze medal in the Bock category for Dunkel Bock. 

 

This is the first occasion any Charlotte brewery was awarded more than one medal in the same year and the only North Carolina brewery to bring home more than one medal in 2019.  You can look for these beers to be seasonally, but not always, available in the taproom, because true to our name we must keep looking ahead to new beers and possibilities.

MISSION STATEMENT

Our mission at Pilot Brewing Company is to produce unique, quality beers that withhold the highest of standards and using local ingredients whenever available. We operate within ethical guidelines and commit to creating a family-feel environment for our owners, employees and guest alike.

Our passion for the craft is bigger beyond words but we are taking it back to small batch!

 

Through the use of experimental recipe design, with the respects to both modern and traditional brewing techniques, Pilot Brewing will provide fresh, local brews one barrel at a time.
