Part beer bar, part nano-brewery, part southern front porch.
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, featuring Protagonist beers and a highly curated collection of our favorite craft beers from around the world.
We blend CO2 and nitrogen into individual draft lines to give our pours a subtly enhanced mouthfeel. Kegs are cooled in multiple temperature zones to serve varying styles at their appropriate temperatures.
It’s an award-winning space and an intimate setting where you’ll definitely get to know your bartender.
Beer cocktails, wine and snacks are also offered.
Whether you’re deep into beer or just getting curious, drop by and say hello.
