Beer Lab

225 S. Broad St. | 704-233-7056 | website

An idea created from the popular R&D (Research & Drinking) Events at Ghostface Brewing, where the brewers would unleash 7 new beers at a time and experiment with strange ingredients, fruit and yeast, has translated into a new location dedicated to the art of brewing. The creation of the Beer Lab is to bring out experimental beers with taps consistently changing weekly if not daily, and to let the brewers’ inner scientists explore the unlimited flavors of beer. In addition, they have some of the best Bourbon, Scotch & Whiskey there is to offer and they are dog friendly!

OnTap Crafty Brews

188 N. Main Street | (704) 660-2337 | website

Housed in a circa 1907 building in downtown Mooresville, this charming tap house occupies a corner spot on Main Street. Serving more than 20 beers on tap at any time, the majority from North Carolina brewers, they also feature local North / South Carolina ciders (gluten free) on tap as well as prosecco, white and red wine. Mindful of the building’s history as a bank, the owners added a cooling system to the original vault and now it serves to keep their beers safe.
