Sugar Creek Brewing

One of Charlotte’s top breweries and a favorite of Rí Rá customers and staff alike, Sugar Creek Brewing Company is bringing Belgian-inspired beer to the Carolinas and beyond.

The Sugar Creek Brewing philosophy combines the watchful eye of a Trappist Monk with the technical precision of a nuclear engineer to craft fresh, full-flavored beers that are immensely satisfying and intensely drinkable. Using unique combinations of aromatic yeast strains, domestic and imported hops and award-winning malt varieties, Sugar Creek infuses traditional recipes with modern tastes and techniques to create beer that nourishes both mind and body.

In a city where the craft beer movement is booming and new breweries open every month Sugar Creeks consistently impresses. Their staples, the white ale and the pale ale, have earned their permanent home at the pub. Stop by, pull up a stool and see what all the fuss is about!

“We are honored to be a permanent fixture in Rí Rá Irish Pub, their dedication to local businesses and their “loyal to local” motto is something we are very proud to be a part of.”

– John Demott, Brand Ambassador

March 2021 Update:

As St. Patrick’s Day 2021 quickly approaches, it is tempting to open our doors and try to recapture the magic of years past. It is a fleeting thought though as we realize that there is nothing more important than the health and well being of our customers and staff. So Rí Rá Irish Pub will remain closed for a bit longer as we continue to monitor the public health conditions.  Instead, we look forward to the St. Patrick’s Days of the future. The months of planning, the beer coolers bursting, that sea of green and being able to once again give the City of Charlotte “céad míle fáilte” (a hundred thousand welcomes).  We are excited for this time and we know, with your continued support, that it will come. 

We will be back in 2021 and will keep you updated as we get closer to reopening.

Please stay safe and well in the meantime.

The Rí Rá Team
