Protagonist Beer Animated Wordmark

Hi, we’re Protagonist Beer! We’re a brewery in Charlotte, NC dedicated to celebrating people, place, and time with award-winning beers and experiences. Our beers are modern takes on classic styles and are named after the protagonists who have inspired us along our journey!

LoSo Brewery & Pizza Kitchen

Our Flagship Location in CLT

Sip on Protagonist beer straight from the source at our flagship 15-barrel brewery. Watch our pizza chefs toss dough into 28” pies. There’s plenty of room to spread out over 3 bars, a barrel room and heated outdoor patio. Come by, enjoy some beers and share a whole pie with friends.

NODA Taproom

Where Our Story Began

In the center of Charlotte’s NoDa arts district, the original Protagonist location is an R&D nano-brewery. Curious beer drinkers can taste from 20 taps and the Fridge of Curiosities, both of which feature Protagonist beers and a highly curated collection of our favorite craft beers from around the world. Beer cocktails, wine and snacks are also offered.
