A new article for The Charlotte Observer: Walk into one of Lake Norman’s growing number of microbreweries or bottle shops these days, and you’ll find two things: An exotic variety of home-grown craft beers and bars full of beer lovers with a strong sense of community.

Craft brewing has taken root across North Carolina, but few places have the concentration of taprooms now found in Lake Norman, and Cornelius in particular. They’re not only feeding demand for local pale ales, porters and stouts, they’re also becoming hangouts for friends and neighbors.

With beer tastings, running and yoga nights, food truck rallies and live music, these new taprooms are actually helping to build community. They’re Lake Norman’s version of the neighborhood pub.
