The 4th Annual Lake Norman Beerfest is back at the Galway Hooker Irish Pub in Cornelius on September 21st. There will be four bands and over 70 beers to sample from local, national, and international breweries! You can purchase tickets now at but don't delay because this event WILL SELL OUT!

What began as a novel idea concocted between friends over a few late night beers at the Galway Hooker; has evolved into an annual event with the simple goal of bringing people together to enjoy great craft beers and music from local bands, all while benefiting the Grin Kids Children’s Charity.

Now in our fourth year, Lake Norman Beer Festival is committed to providing its patrons with the same great experience that has made the festival so successful. This year’s Lake Norman Beer Festival will be held 4–9pm on September 21, 2013, with the exclusive VIP sampling 3–4pm near the Galway Hooker in Cornelius. For one low price, the Lake Norman Beer Festival will be offering more than 50 craft beers to sample out of your commemorative sampling glass—courtesy of your friends at the Lake Norman Beerfest. These delicious beers are guaranteed to be pouring during all 5 hours of the festival without interruption. Rain or shine the beers will be flowing underneath our beer tents! The annual Lake Norman Beer Fest is back!
