Wilson’s World: OMB’s “Weihnachtsmarkt”

Wilson Visits Olde Meckenburg Brewery's "Weihnachtsmarkt"

CHARLOTTE, N.C. –   Olde Mecklenburg Brewery‘s 6th annual German-style Holiday Market , the  Weihnachtsmarkt, kicks off for its 6th year.

A yearly tradition in Germany, this Christmas Market is a marketplace where baked goods, crafts and gifts are offered for sale.  Enjoy a good beer or a hot spiced red wine and great food while strolling through the market.  The fire pits will be fired up to keep everyone warm while outside in the beer garden enjoying the fun.  Bring the family and enjoy some of the non-adult beverages as well.

Over 30 local vendors will be at the market.   CLT Boutique and Tripp’s Prints were two of the vendors that Wilson talked with about the items they will have for sale at the marketplace.

Among North Carolina based breweries Olde Mecklenburg Brewery is the largest brewhouse in the state and just nabbed top honors in an international competition.  They just debuted their newest beer, Yule Bock, a beer that will just be available for a short time during the holiday season.

The holiday market begins today at 4pm and runs each Friday and Saturday through Saturday, December 19th.  More information on the market and hours can be found HERE.  Olde Mecklenburg Brewery is located at 4150 Yancey Road in Charlotte.

Remember:  Shop local, buy local and keep your money in your community.
