The Sugar Creek Brewing Company is dedicated to brewing high quality ales in a style and commitment representative of the Belgian Trappist monks. Their philosophy combines the watchful eye of a Trappist Monk with the technical precision of a nuclear engineer to craft fresh, full-flavored beer that is immeasurably satisfying and intensely drinkable. Sugar Creek infuses traditional recipes with modern tastes and techniques to create beer that nourishes both mind and body.
They have Food trucks Mondays through Wednesdays and they serve their own food fare Thursdays thru Sundays. You should definitely try a Panini, they are to die for! They usually have free brewery tours on Saturdays too!
We had the opportunity to talk with one of the owners Eric Flanigan and here’s what he has to say..
How long have you been in business? Sugar Creek Brewing Company is just over a year old. We’re celebrating our two year anniversary on October 15, 2016. Mark your calendars, we have some really awesome things lined up for the party.
What do you love most about being your own boss? My favorite thing about being my own boss is coaching and developing staff. Joe Vogelbacher (the other owner) and I also enjoy creating a positive company culture.
What makes Charlotte so special? The people are the best! You can’t beat the Southern Hospitality found in this city.
Have you always wanted to own your own business? Yes.
For someone visiting Charlotte, what is the one must see? If you’re visiting Charlotte you need to check out the White Water Center. They have something for people of all ages.
What is your favorite local restaurant? There are way too many great restaurants in Charlotte to pick just one!
Do you see yourself opening another branch on other locations? Sugar Creek beers will be available in Greenville, SC and Columbia, SC starting on June 20th. Raleigh and Charleston would be two other areas that would be great to have a presence in.
Why do your customers stay or do repeat business with you? Our customers appreciate our relentless commitment to brewing high quality, great tasting beer. In addition to that, we have a lot of repeats Tap Room customers, because our team does a great job making each customer’s experience one they take with them far beyond the brewery walls.

What do you look for in an employee? We look for people who are genuinely passionate about beer and their job.
What is unique about your business? Everyone at our brewery has some level of Cicerone certification. The Cicerone Certification Program certifies and educates beer professionals so they know how to serve, store, taste and pair beers. We think beer education is extremely important. We want to be able to share that information with our beer drinkers, so they can have the best drinking experience possible.
What are your responsibilities as the business owner? That’s a loaded question! I do more things than I can list, but I mainly focus on developing our team, overseeing distribution and wholesale account sales, coordinating production and brand presence.
