North Carolina Brewers and Music Festival

Mark your calendars!

The first North Carolina Brewers and Music Festival will be held on May 14 from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. at Rural Hill, a 265-acre historic farm in Huntersville. The event, for which proceeds support the preservation of Rural Hill, is meant to celebrate the state of North Carolina—and specifically its breweries and music. Musicians will include Chatham County Line, Eric Lindell, New Familiars, Moonshine Racers, and Sol Driven Train among others.

And now the most important part: the beer. Confirmed breweries include Highland Brewing Co., Four Friends Brewing, NoDa Brewing Company, Birdsong, Big Boss, Cottonwood Ales, Lone Rider, and more. Tickets, which are $45 per person in advance and $60 at the gate, include a festival sampling glass. There are also Designated Driver and Under 21 tickets available at a discounted price. Plus, if you’re interested, on site camping is available by reservation.
