Springtime brings a bit of green, new life, and celebration of warmer weather. In the spirit of celebrating spring, StayLakeNorman has a few suggestions for fantastic places to enjoy a brew or two from one of the area’s infamous craft breweries. Stay with us in one of our magnificent luxury lakefront vacation rentals and taste some of Lake Norman’s finest beverages.

On Tap And In A Bottle

There are a few notable stops that are well worth checking out on your visit to Lake Norman. The first being Bayne Brewing Company. This business has an array of specialty brews as well as a fun atmosphere and a great mission. One Percent of annual profits made go towards funding gorilla conservation, and they also take donations to help out with their contributions. So you can enjoy your brews and know that a bit of what you paid is going towards something meaningful.

Another fantastic place to grab a brew is at the Cornelius Drafthouse and Bottle Shop. The variety you will find here holds a plethora of bottled and tap beers. From uniquely flavored craft beers to the old faithful classics, you will be able to locate it on the fully stocked shelves lining the walls.

If you would like to safely and easily visit multiple breweries, you can hop aboard one of the several brewery tours in the area and taste plenty of samples and talk to the local brewmasters.

For The Wine Lover

If you are not fond of beer and prefer a more elegant beverage, then perhaps the Lake Norman Wine Cottage is the place for you. With beautiful views of the Lake Norman, you can sip on local spirits lakeside. You will find yourself in an old-fashioned and homey atmosphere for a relaxed day of enjoying a few glasses of wine.  

Just as scenic as the Wine Cottage, Davesté Vineyards in the Troutman community of Lake Norman allows you to listen to live music while tasting an array of fine wines. The music you will hear ranges from acoustic music to the Lake Norman Symphony.

Best Of Both Worlds

Many people travel in groups or pairs. If you happen to have members of your party that want brews and the others preferring spirits, then The Cork and Cask is the best choice. A lively atmosphere, tasty dishes, and a seemingly endless selection of both wines and beers, you cannot go wrong with this spot. With everyone receiving a drink they will love, everyone in your party will be satisfied.

For the unique and creative, an intriguing stop for you may be into the Old Town Public House. With a creative corner, coffee shop, taphouse, bottle shop, vineyard, and live music all in one, this is the ideal stop for a bit of a variety.

If you are looking for fantastic stops to get spunky this spring, be sure to look up these fun and lively venues. Our luxury lakefront vacation rentals are ready to accommodate you while you are here. Bring a few bottles back to your rental for a relaxing night by the fire.
