You can expect to have a great time! Multiple breweries and cideries from across the Southeast and around the world will serve a wide variety of amazing beverages right here in the heart of Charlotte, North Carolina. It’s important to note that we will be limiting attendance at this year’s festival to help ensure that you aren’t waiting in line all day for beer. We want to ensure that each patron has the opportunity to talk with the brewers who craft these awesome beers. After all, it’s the brewers who make this wonderful festival possible each year.

We respect everyone’s right not to drink alcohol and we acknowledge that not everyone drinks or specifically enjoys craft beer. Unfortunately, we do not offer DD tickets. However, every ticket holder should be able to enjoy our festival, so we have added a few ciders and meads into the lineup for the non-beer drinkers to sample unlimitedly. For non-drinkers, and those wanting an alcohol break, we will have a few non-alcoholic options available in addition to free bottles of water [stay hydrated!]. The majority of our proceeds goes to our selected charities every year, so regardless of your drinking style, if you want to come out for the fun – you are welcome, appreciated, and helping to contribute to our Drink Craft For A Cause goal!
