So, mark your calendars now, because on Saturday, Dec. 15th 2012
The Charlotte Beer Club and Good Eats & Meets are at it again! #CLTSantaCon is back! What is SantaCon you ask? Santacon is a non-denominational, non-commercial, non-political and non-sensical Holiday party that occurs once a year for absolutely no reason in over 260 cities and 36 countries around the world. SantaCon is a global phenomenon that has been gong on for more than 2 years. So, in 2011, we decided Charlotte needed one. Who doesn't love Santa!?!? Who doesn't love beer!?!? Well, we put both together for an event that celebrates the LOCAL craft beer community, where all the adults can also enjoy the holiday spirit, in EVERY way! The NORTH POLE is coming to occupy Charlotte!!! Join us as we SING, MINGLE and JINGLE our way through all 6 of CLT’s craft beer breweries.
One Day…One Night…One BIG Hangover…CLTSantaCon is Here!!!

What to Wear to SantaCon? How to Put Your Own Spin on a Santa Suit!!?
SantaCon is about making merry with hundreds of your fellow Santa’s, but that doesn't mean you can't stand out in the crowd! There is more than one way to pass as Kris Kringle, so choose a Santa suit that fits your own SantaCon style at one of Party City’s more than 750 stores nationwide. Party City is the official SantaCon costume sponsor. Grab a bandana and gear up as biker Santa or rock the Vegas version of Ol' St. Nick. Whatever you choose, Party City helps you get your holiday party on…literally!
So, if you are looking for a Jolly Good Time? Look no further! Join hundreds of Santa's as we hop around the Queen City and our awesome craft beer community.
