“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a Ride!”

― Hunter S. Thompson


The Unknown is not about being mysterious. It’s not that we couldn’t come up with a name and gave up. The Unknown is about a way of life. It’s trying things that scare you. It’s not knowing the future but going after it anyway. It’s about the adventure and all of those things that are on your bucket list. The Unknown is your first kiss or your last time jumping out of an airplane.  You only have one chance at this thing called life, so make it count. Try anything, question everything, no regrets and most of all, live without boundaries.

We strive to live this culture ourselves. We try to show this in our beers, our merchandise, and mostly our lifestyles. We want to push the limits of what can be done and  also do it with a smirk on our face. Our beer is one thing we take serious, everything else in life we don’t.

We are a company that makes beer. But, we want to be people that help a culture thrive. A culture of individuals who truly live life to the fullest and gain the greatest life experience not through television or books but through direct adventures. We will encourage this any chance we get. So our call to you is…….

STEP INTO THE UNKNOWN.

Over-the-Edge-American-IPA
If You’re Not Living On The Edge, You’re Taking Up Too Much Space

We’ve never been to India and neither has this beer. We believe the American Style has changed what an IPA is. More Hops, more grain, and more flavor. This is an American IPA.

Over the Edge takes a great balance of 5 grains and then ramps it up with West Coast hops that were born in the shadows of the cascades. We use these Hops in 7 different additions to create an adventure from the beginning of the sip all the way to the burp.

This beer has a blood orange color and thick white head. The beer starts with great hop aroma and malty sweetness followed by citrus orange full bodied flavor, finishing with clean piney end and cascade aroma’s. This beer will not only show you what an American IPA is, it will take you Over the Edge!

Head-First-Pale-Ale

Head First Pale ale is beer for any challenge.

Whether you’re back packing the Appalachian Trail or trying to catch a trophy fish 100 miles out at sea.

Head first is golden tan and has a light crisp sweetness and great body without being too heavy. You won’t get bloated after drinking half a beer. This beer has unique hops, but of course you don’t fear this. Most are late addition hops which gives this beer great hop Aroma’s without the bitterness. Take this beer with you as you seek your next challenge and once you find it, get after it . . . Head First.

No-Shame-Wheat-Ale

Don’t apologize if what you do is right.

And if what you’re doing right is drink good beer, then have No Shame. This beer isn’t the biggest or the hoppiest beer known to mankind, nor will the beer geeks ever age it for a bottle share. But it is good beer, that’s all that matters!

No Shame is a wheat beer. This beer is a great summer beer or a great beer if your summer never ends. Light body with touches of wheat that adds smooth creamy notes with hops that make this a great drinker! Drink this proud . . . There’s No Shame

Pre-game-Session-Ale

You wake up and that first thought is . . .

Today is going to be a big day.  It may be a tail gate, a pontoon party, a wedding, or it may be getting ready to run with the bulls.

The fact remains you’ve got to get ready for the big day or prepare for a long night. It’s time to Pre-Game.

Pre-Game is a Session Ale, this means this beer has great drinking potential. At 4.5% it beholds all of the craft flavor that you crave, but stays away from being too heavy. This beer is golden in color and low in bitterness.  Hops do come through in a sweet piney aroma that makes the end of every sip sound like . . . Game Time!

Brads entire life’s mission is to do things outside the norm and getting outside his comfort zone. To him that is the whole point of The Unknown. Whether its traveling to Thailand to drink snake blood, jumping into ice filled water to become a polar bear, hanging out the side of a helicopter, or building a brewery from scratch. He always lives life without boundaries. He has no frills or politics. Simply put he only cares about four things. Good people, great beer, the adventure, and America!

    Larry Suggs

    Born and raised in Charlotte, this good ol’ boy has seen this city grow into what it is today. Spending his early days on Lake Wylie pondering what was at the bottom of the lake, realizing it was far deeper than he thought he almost drowned trying to figure it out. This was only the beginning of the adventure to see what the world had in store for. After a trip across the country where he enjoyed his first Cask ale and Bourbon Barrel aged stout he realized that beer didn’t have to be flavorless. It was then he knew his life had changed forever. After making his way back to Charlotte he set his sights on creating the same great beer culture so many were enjoying on the West coast. He got back to Charlotte and started blowing up the beer scene like the ant hills he blew up during his youth. Climbing through the ranks at one of the top beer bars in the region, it only fueled his passion for beer by enabling him to dive even deeper into the beer scene. His goal is to change the face of the Beer World as we know it and he wont stop til hes done it.

At The Unknown Brewing Company we are more than just a name. A name does not mean you make good beer, and good beer does not have to have a name.
Our job is to stand out. We are the open road with no destination. We are your first kiss or your last time jumping out of an airplane,
or whatever your wildest adventure is. We are The Unknown.
So if you need us to have a name, make one up. If you make one up we prefer you call us something with adventure, or America, or dragons or something epic.
That would be awesome. All we know is that we are good people whose mission is to make really great beer and have fun doing it.
So our call to you………. Step into the Unknown
