#CLTSantaCon is back for our 3rd year and we hope you can make a road trip to CLT.

What is SantaCon you ask? SantaCon is an ADULT (no children permitted), non-denominational, non-commercial, non-political and non-sensical Holiday party that occurs once a year for absolutely no reason in over 303 cities and 41 countries around the world! SantaCon is a global phenomenon that has been going on for many 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 3 of CLT’s craft beer breweries, with a special stop at NC Music Factory to visit a special event with Four Friends Brewing at VBGB Beer Garden! For the cherry on the SantaCon top, we will be having a Bad Santa’s Enchanted Forest Party at Whisky River ( in the Epicentre (
