Lake Norman is booming in the craft beer scene. Check out our Beer and Wine Trail map and all the breweries and beer/wine shops here in Cornelius, Davidson, and Huntersville. Become immersed in North Carolina's wine and craft beer scene by not only stopping by many of the surrounding wineries and craft breweries, but also checking out local tasting events and festivals.
If you're a beer fanatic looking for a place to stay, Comfort Suites Huntersville is the first and only hotel in the Lake Norman area to offer "A Room with a Brew." This unique room package offers a discounted room rate in addition to special perks from our local breweries including complimentary flights and souvenir pint glasses! They are proud of their partnership with Ass Clown, Primal & D9 Brewing Co and look forward to promoting the Lake Norman area as a beverage destination location!
Home to nearly 250 breweries and brewpubs, NC has the most of any state south of Pennsylvania and east of Texas. For the beer lovers, make sure to stop by many breweries and bottle shops surrounding Lake Norman for a pint. NC is the state of southern beer and it's time to celebrate.

With 100 wineries and vineyards, ranking 7th in wine production and 10th in grape production nationally, North Carolina wineries and vineyards provide a compelling reason to visit our state.
