At each of these places, you can sample one-of-a-kind brews and enjoy a friendly atmosphere. If you haven’t checked them out, here are some you should add to your list to try.
Primal Brewery is a gathering place where people come together to enjoy beer and food truck food. A comfortable outdoor beer garden has lawn games and inviting picnic tables, while the tap house has cozy seating, live music, and an intimate experience. Purchase a flight to sample several varieties that are brewed in-house and enjoy the rare treat of a brewery that doesn’t double as a sports bar. The focus at Primal Brewery is on gathering with friends, both old and new, so you won’t see a wall of TVs anywhere on the property.
Ass Clown Brewing Company
Though it’s in Cornelius, Ass Clown Brewing Company is just three miles from Huntersville, so it might as well be considered local. This brewery usually has about 31 beers on tap for your consideration. It’s not a large location, but that helps it have an intimate feel. The bartenders are known for their friendly help, assisting patrons in finding the perfect brew to experience.
D9 Brewing Company
With both indoor and outdoor seating, this craft microbrewery has something for everyone. D9 Brewing Company is also in Cornelius, but it is worth the short drive. Several of the beers have won prestigious awards at the Great American Beer Festival, and the brewery always has something new and experimental brewing. Come for your tried-and-true flavor or get a flight to taste some of the new experimental brews and find a new favorite.
Eleven Lakes Brewing
Eleven Lakes Brewing in Cornelius is a new taproom that opened in the Hyde Storage Park in 2017. This particular brewery has daily specials, like $10 growler fills on Thursdays or $4 pints on Wednesdays. It is also served by a nearby food truck if you’re in the mood for beer and a bite to eat.
Craft beer is becoming an art form in the Huntersville and Cornelius regions. When you live here, you’re able to enjoy these brews firsthand. The next time you want to go out with friends, put one of these breweries on your list, and enjoy the experience of sampling something new, fresh, and innovative.
