Over-the-Edge-American-IPA
If Your Not Living On The Edge, Your 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!

The Unknown Brewing Co.’s agenda is relatively simple.

Permanently change the face of beer and the culture that surrounds it.

Showcasing knowledge, talent and a passion for all things beer, UBC will create

exceptional beer and a cultural experience exceeding all that have come before it.

If you can imagine having a job that you love … doing what you love for a living … and taking a chance, you have a pretty good idea of what UBC embodies, what we love and what drives our passion.

The ride starts here.


OUR PEOPLE

We acknowledge that people and their pursuits are the heart of all that matters for UBC. Our brewers, our customers and our partners.

At every interchange, we encourage our people to do something outside their comfort zone. To take that leap of faith. To overcome the butterflies. To step into the unknown. The reward outweighs the risk.


OUR PERSONALITY

Unapologetic, our evolution is esoteric and we are not looking back at

what has been done before.

    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.
