Triple C Brewing Company is the brewery to visit if you are looking for the freshest craft beer in Charlotte. The brewery prides itself as a meeting place that is focused on community and fair pricing. #Knowyourcraft is Triple C's motto and is the belief that you should know where your beer comes from and who brews it.
Established in 2012, Triple C was named for its three founders, Chris, Christine and Chris. Today, owner Chris Harker believes that the three "c"s also stand for craft, community and charity.
The taproom has a large bar and several tables. There is also additional picnic table seating outside in the large gravel patio.
The brewery and taproom are located at 2900 Griffith St. Charlotte, NC 28203.
Triple C Brewing Company is conveniently located close to the Rail Trial in Charlotte's Historic South End community, making the brewery easily accessed on foot or via bicycle.

Scott Kimball is head brewer at Triple C Brewing. In 2006 while hiking the Appalachian Trail, Scott was turned-on to the idea of home brewing. He started growing his own hops and experimented with different blends to create his own home-brews and hone his brewing technique. Scott’s passion for brewing took him then to Dover, DE to be an assistant brewer for Old Dominion and Fordham breweries, then on to Colorado to become the Head Brewer for Eddyline Brewpub.
Assistant brewers include:
- David Carey
- Tyler Hamelin
- Matt Finch
- Graham Dennis
