From the website:
Heist Brewery is proud of its historical heritage. The Heist Building is located in historic Highland Park Mill, originally a cotton mill constructed in 1903-1904.
Heist Brewery is Charlotte’s newest contemporary brewpub in the NoDa Neighborhood. We utilize old world techniques of brewing.
I dragged Ryan and Mason around our neighborhood for a 1.5 mile run just so I could justify going to the local brewery for a burger.
Once we got to HB, we plopped Mason down in a high chair with some of his toys.
Shortly after arriving at Heist we ordered our meals ... the "Brewmaster BBQ" burger for Ryan and the "Highland Mills Bacon Cheese" for me. Ryan went with the creamed corn as his side and I chose the Parmesan rosemary tots.
the "Highland Mills Bacon Cheese" was
a blend of smoked brisket and porterhouse tail, aged cheddar, smoked bacon, fire roasted maters, red onion, and baby greens.
Our server told us the meat was ground in house ... it had such an amazing taste. The burger patty was so flavorful and juicy; definitely one of my favorite in Charlotte. I enjoyed the toppings and found that no condiments were needed (I didn't add any ketchup or ask for mustard or mayo).
My only complaint with the burger was the bun ... it just didn't taste right and didn't add the right flavor profile to the burger. And the tots were delicious; but unfortunately only 4 or 5 are served as the side.
Ryan enjoyed his burger but also complained about the bun. He loved the creamed corn as his side.
Overall this was a great burger and I would definitely order it again. I love the atmosphere of Heist Brewery and enjoy their beers. We're lucky to have a fun drinking/eating establishment just a short distance away from our home.
