Here’s why you need to make plans to attend this year’s Lake Norman Beerfest!

This year’s greatest addition to Lake Norman Beerfest is a Southern Sauce Barbecue area featuring award-winning barbecue. Items for purchase will include brisket, pulled pork, ribs, cole slaw, baked beans, and macaroni and cheese. Once your plate is full head over to the Pig Pit Tent and grab a seat at one of the many picnic tables.

What goes better with southern barbecue than beer? Guests 21 and over will have access to an unlimited sampling of over 75 beers. Once you arrive, you’ll be given a sample cup and be on your way to sampling both local and national brews.

Now that you’ve got a full plate and a beer, relax and enjoy the live entertainment. Two bands will take the stage at Lake Norman Beerfest and are sure to put on a great show. The Audiophiles are a 5 piece rock band from Union Grove, North Carolina. They begin the festivities at 5:00 pm and will be playing a mix of 90’s rock and music from the vinyl era. Taking the stage at 7:30 pm is Blue Monday. This group of 5 will be playing a mix of 80’s, 90’s and today’s hits.

Lake Norman Beerfest is a popular event and tickets will sell out! General admission tickets are $35 and include unlimited sampling and a commemorative glass. A VIP ticket is also available for $60. The VIP experience grants guests early entrance into the event at 4:00 pm, an exclusive tasting area, a collectible glass, and VIP only brews.
