Charlotte’s Bold Missy Brewery is born from the celebration of great Bold Missies and Misters. We create the best for every pour of well-loved styles of craft beer and our delicious eats. We take our business seriously, but not ourselves. Our philosophy is to balance passion and fun with business and growth, reach out and bring it in with our guests and community, and celebrate life’s enjoyment and the people who live life in a bold way.

ABOUT

 

 

Every morning when Carol came in to work, her first boss would pop up over the cubes and shout “Look out everybody!  Here comes the Bold Missy!” Her career included hard time at a mega brewer, but she developed a great love of the fun of the beer business. On a craft beer pub crawl, she realized that she wanted to start her own brewery. Several years later, living and breathing hops, malt and yeast, the Bold Missy Brewery was born.

 

  • Clemson Tiger orange is the predominant color in her t-shirt drawer
  • Rents a room from Bruno- the brew dog, he really owns the house
  • Not ashamed of her love of sitcoms and reality tv
  • If she tries to hug you, just go with it, she loves to “bring it in”

Dan got his start in the beer industry working on the packaging line.  While working at Deschutes, he would often share is Southeast beer collection with his coworkers.  The Oregon brewers were impressed with the way he described the different flavors and ingredients and they encouraged him to make his own beer.  After moving back to Atlanta, Dan decided to pursue his dream and headed to Germany for brewing school at VLB Berlin.  After completing the intensive course, he returned home a certified Brew Master.

 

  • Decided he wanted to getting into beer after visiting his first brewery, New Belgium in Colorado
  • First beer gig at Sweetwater doing odd jobs until he landed a position on the packaging line
  • Has two faithful pups, Porter and Abby
  • When not brewing, he can be found out in the great outdoors, wandering the woods

When Lybbi was a little kid in St. Louis, MO, her favorite Aunt Carol took her on a tour of the Anheuser-Busch facility. When Lybbi grabbed her nose and whined about the brewery smell, Carol leaned in and whispered, “That’s the smell of money, kid.” Twenty years later, Carol realized that at the heart of a successful, craft brewery is a “secret weapon millennial.” So, she called on her niece to rise to the occasion.

 

  • Spent five years saying, “my pleasure” at Chick-Fil-A
  • Worked at Disney World, wasn’t a Princess, but thanks for asking
  • Has two Siamese cats, but is NOT a cat person
  • Made the kessel run in less than twelve parsecs

One of our key values is to “Reach Out and Bring It In.”

In an effort to live up to this bold statement, we will partner with local non-profit organizations that share our interests in creating a better planet for all.

 

Our commitment includes our program, “Drink One Down for Our Town.”

 

On the first Wednesday of every month, we will donate the taproom proceeds to one of Charlotte’s local charities. If you are passionate about a local non-profit, we would love to reach out and include them in our monthly program.
