The Unknown Brewery: Beer “Without Boundaries”

The Unknown Brewery: Beer “Without Boundaries”

Closing in on their one year anniversary, Unknown Brewing Co.  is continuing to pick up steam in regards to what they bring to the CLT brewery scene. In just a year they have shown an impressive dedication to their brand and continue to up the ante with their unique beer selection.  Like their motto they certainly lead by example and “live without boundaries”.


Although they have always brewed their own beer on site, they have been very excited to recently implement their own canning system.  My personal favorite beer, Over The Edge, has been available for purchase in cans for a few months now and recently they have also started canning Silverback Stout.  Not only are the beers delicious but I personally am attracted to the unique eye catching designs on the cans themselves.  The cans are available for purchase at the brewery or at various local venders where craft beer is sold.  In addition to releasing their beer for purchase in cans they are also continuing to create specialty bottle beers.  Most recently they released Escorpion En Fuego, an imperial Mexican-style lager brewed with agave nectar, serrano peppers and ninety-nine scorpions. Up next – Dirty Commie Heathen, a Russian Imperial Stoutt.


Over the last year the Unknown staff has invested time and effort creating a fun and relaxing atmosphere in their tasting room for their guests to enjoy. It is very spacious with lots of room to comfortably spread out, definitely a perk in my book.  One of the most unique additions to the taproom is the giant hops chandelier that you will find hanging next to the bar, definitely one of a kind. Also, last month Unknown opened their very own arcade room.  Needless to say there is lots of great beer to drink and fun to be had at Unknown.

Make sure that you don’t miss Unknown Brewery’s big one year anniversary party Saturday February 21st.  Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band will be throwing it down and Unknown will be unveiling yet another specialty beer.  Cheers to the Unknown and don’t forget to “live without boundaries”!

  1. Unknown didn’t always brew their beer on site — they brewed off-site (I believe in Atlanta) for a few months at first. They opened in Nov 2013, so perhaps their anniversary party is the anny of them brewing on-site.
