The story goes that the owner of Free Range Brewing called his now father-in-law "sir," and he didn't take kindly to it. His father-in-law told him, "You can call me by my first name, you can call me f--khead, but don't call me sir." And so, "Call me F.H." was born.
"Call Me F.H." is a 6.7% ABV brown ale, and Free Range used it as the base for our Beer of the Week, "A Big F.H." And boy, is that a delicious beer.
Read on to learn more about our local beer of the week, the brewery it came from, and the fitness activities they've got to offer Charlotte's active beer-lovers.
The Beer: "A Big F.H."
The Brewery: Free Range Brewing
Free Range is all about cultivating community, which is one of the major reasons why they use as many local ingredients as possible when crafting their small batch brews. They also frequently feature the creations of other local artists and artisans, from North Carolina illustrators to small batch chocolatiers and beyond.
Most of the time, your best bet if you're looking to try Free Range beer is to come into the taproom; they like to keep things fresh, so they don't distribute their product too often. But you're always able to get a 32 oz. crowler of your favorite brew to go, if you want to enjoy it somewhere other than Free Range's own welcoming space.
The Beer Fitness Activities: Free Yoga (!!!) and Pop-Up Workouts
This class fills up quickly, so get there early! If you're not in the mood for a beer, Free Range has kombucha, shrub, and cold brew coffee on tap. There's also usually a food truck outside, so you can grab dinner to enjoy with your drink of choice.
Beyond yoga, Free Range also hosts pop-up workouts of all kinds, from swing dancing to barre to bootcamps and beyond. Be sure to follow them on social media to keep up with their ever-growing events list.
