Craft Beer (and more!) in Mooresville

Visiting our beautiful town and fun attractions can make you a bit thirsty, and luckily we have just what you need to wet your whistle. Our local craft beer, wine, and spirits scene has something for everyone. Visit our Mooresville breweries, where the decor and personality of each one is as unique as the beers they create. For oenophiles, we have an extensive wine collection at our quaint wine shops and restaurants, or you can get even closer to the vines at a vineyard. Or if you like your beverages a bit more spirited, visit the nearby distillery for award-winning selections.
