Tap takeovers, beer dinners and unique, hand-picked events will be happening in and around Charlotte for all 10 exciting days. Favorite events like Common Market Southend’s Freak Fest (March 22nd) and Beast of the East vs. Best of the West (March 24th) will be returning with all new highlights.

Charlotte Craft Beer Week is the brainchild of Charlotte Beer Club and is a grassroots celebration of the best beers from across the globe. CCBW has something for everyone from beer experts to novices, and even non-beer drinkers.
