What is the NCBMF?
A celebration of Music, North Carolina, and its craft brewing traditions, NCBMF will delight you with six bands and as many NC brewers who can be here, serving free tastings of their finest brews for 3 full hours, all in the confines of one of the largest open areas in Mecklenburg County!
What do I get with my ticket?
If you purchase a 21 and over ticket, you will be given admission to the show, a program guide / schedule, and the right to try as many beers as you would like, for free, during the 3 hour tasting session, after which most brewers will transition to beer sales after tasting hours are over. That’s a lot of time and a lot of beer, we encourage you to pace yourself, try new flavors and varieties, meet new people and find new favorites! If you purchase the 20 and under / Designated Driver ticket, you will receive a program guide / schedule, and over 9 hours of live music from seven of the most talented bands in the region!
