WHO WE ARE:
In 2010, husband and wife, Chris and Tara Goulet were ready for a change. Chris was tired of the corporate grind and Tara needed a break from managing a local bakery. A friend and co-worker at the bakery, Conor Robinson, was learning how to home-brew. Chris and Tara thought Charlotte was missing a small neighborhood brewery where folks could stop in for a pint or take home a growler of super-fresh, unfiltered, American-style ale. They invited a handful of close friends over to pitch a business plan and serve Conor’s beer, and Birdsong Brewing Company was born.
From brewer to canning tech, everyone that works (and plays) together at Birdsong is dedicated to bringing you fresh, never-filtered craft beer.
Each of our beers, from our flagship IPA, Higher Ground, to our specialty drafts released at the tap room, is crafted with pride in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Medical, Dental and Vision Insurance
Paid Vacation, Sick Time and Holidays
Company Sponsored 401k with employer match
