The Amazing Beer and Wine Festival
Lighthouse Beer and Wine puts on this fantastic event once a year, always in the wonderful month of October. Mark your calendars for October 26th for this year’s 19th annual Beer and Wine Festival. The festival runs from 1pm-5pm, with a limited number of VIP tickets reaping the benefit of a noon entry and loads of limited beers and wine.
Tickets go on sale this summer! VIP tickets are more limited and sell out faster each year—regular tickets sell out too! Be on top of your game and get them early! When tickets do go on sale, you will be able to get tickets online, or stop by our specialty beer and wine store, Lighthouse Beer and Wine. We’re located in Wrightsville Beach.
Over 100 craft breweries, and wineries will be all in one place. There’s no better way to try all the best beer and wine available. We want you to find new and exciting beverages that you love to sip. You will want nothing more than to hone your hop tasting, tickle your tongue, and have the best beer and wine tasting day of the year. We make a guide for you to have before you go, you can check out our flyer from 2018 , if you’d like it to be interactive. For you lucky wine ticket holders, there will be a printed booklet with all the participating wineries at the wine deck.
Admission includes entrance to the Beer & Wine Festival grounds, a glass to sample with, and more beer or wine than you can ever taste in one day. So check out our guide and start planning your beer wanderings for the day. A free shuttle service to the greater Wilmington area will be available after the festival, so go ahead and enjoy yourself. Food vendors will be on site as well, so you can enjoy delicious foods while you explore the world of hops, grape and grain.
As always, the festival benefits The Carousel Center, a non-profit organization committed to assisting victims of child abuse, providing critical care services to children from 15 counties throughout southeastern North Carolina.
Oh, and the bonus of the day (as if more beers than you can shake a tree at were not enough) is the live music that takes the experience over the top! Our bands always rock the casbah; we’ve rocked out to Langhorne Slim, Cory Chisel and the Wandering Sons, the Black Lillies, Rosco Bandana and Holy Ghost Tent Revival– last year it was Charlie Crockett who rocked us out!
