Todd Ford is a retired commercial pilot who discovered he had a knack for brewing. His home brews were so well-crafted and popular among his friends that he and his wife Suzie decided to branch out. They opened NoDa Brewing Company in 2011 and have developed a steadily growing society of local followers.
NoDa Brewing Company's CoCo Loco won the award for Best Porter at the Great American Beer Festival, and they have been given the title of Charlotte's Best Brewery by Charlotte Magazine the last two years straight. So if you're looking for some flavorful refreshment in a friendly atmosphere, this is a great place to land.
I stopped by on a Thursday evening and most every table was full of hop-loving patrons imbibing from a healthy selection of ales and stouts. A food truck on site provided savory dishes to accompany the libations.
