Lighthouse Beer & Wine Festival Vendors

Lighthouse Beer & Wine Festival is the largest beer festival in eastern North Carolina.

Celebrating its 18th year, The Lighthouse Beer Festival is an event full of fun and entertainment drawing over 5,500 beer enthusiasts from around the country for an afternoon of tasting craft beers from around the world. Lighthouse Beer Festival raises money for The Carousel Center, a non-profit organization committed to aiding abused and neglected youth.

Our festival attendance demographic illustrates great opportunities to reach a large section of people. Our attendees are historically 54% male, 46% female; 75% are 25-44 years old. With an average household income of 80k, the majority of our attendees describe themselves as professional with at least one college degree. 80% have attended the Lighthouse Beer Festival more than once and over 50% have attended the Lighthouse Beer Festival more than 3 times. And 87% purchase craft beer more than once a month, while 91% purchase imported beer more than once a month.


After such great success last year, we will be offering the “Celebrated Brewery” option again. This is a great opportunity to really highlight your brewery as one of our “celebrated” breweries. Please note your interest on the brewery vendor form if you’re interested in a larger web presence, PA announcements during the event, extra guest lists, and even a comp hotel room for your stay!

Please email us at info@lighthousebeerandwine.com so we know to expect you. The sooner you register with us, the more exposure your brewery will receive in our literature and advertising. If you are a non-beer vendor looking for more information, please see the sponsor page for more information.


“Lighthouse Beer Festival is one of the best run festivals I am part of—solid participation, great logistical organization, strong charitable effort, things to do besides drinking (i.e., games, music etc..) …Lighthouse Beer Festival really does have it all. I am looking forward to Lighthouse Beer Festival 2012 very much!”

—Pete Scheider, Mid Atlantic Sales Manager for Victory Brewing Company

“As the only beer rep for Harpoon in North Carolina, I work  lots of beer festivals throughout the year; the Lighthouse Beer Festival is always my favorite. With a great outdoor location, good food and music, and of course TONS of different high quality craft beers on tap, I honestly think I have as much fun working at the festival as the crowd does attending it since everyone can’t help but have an absolute blast!”

—Eric Robinson 2012, Regional Product Rep for Harpoon Brewery
