OMB is a really nice brewery/restaurant which not only has great German food and local draft beers but a large outdoor entertainment area with stage and live music. It also has a grassy area for kids to throw frisbees/footballs/etc. Very popular spot in Charlotte and...More

The brewery-restaurant is located near the airport, most hotel shuttles will take you there. They have a nice selection of lagers but not much in the ale department. The German food is pretty good, the other offering just typical bar food

Came here for the beer and the food was an added bonus. Our group tried all of the different beers and had food from the spaetzle to the pretzel to the wings. Everything was very good along with the service. This is a must stop!

It depends how stuffy and old the people coming are. If you are relatively young and/or open minded, I'd say yes. Congratulations and have fun.
