Backcountry Beer Fest
Saturday, 19 November 2016 from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm
3500 Shamrock Drive

Join us for the Backcountry Beer Fest featuring local breweries, live music, and food trucks. This event will celebrate the heritage and history of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County through a colonial brewing competition. The craft brewery scene in Charlotte has exploded recently, but local brewing is not a new phenomenon! Settlers in 18th century Mecklenburg County brewed their own beer and believed alcohol was the key to health and happiness.

Sample last year’s winning brew, participate in a corn-hole tournament, test your knowledge of Charlotte and soccer with some trivia, and learn more about our region’s history with a tour of the Hezekiah Alexander Homesite.

$10 for Members, $15 for the Public, and $5 for non-drinking guests.
