With September 10th’s Music & Brews Night rained out, Mint Hill Events decided to combine the event with September 17th’s Family Fun Night, capping off the summer with a night of entertainment for all ages.  Sarah Brock and her staff from Pour 64 managed ID checks for beer drinkers while Town Brewing, Triple C, and Eleven Lakes served up some of their bestselling and seasonal drafts.



Located just outside uptown Charlotte about a mile from the stadium, Town Brewing Company just celebrated their fourth anniversary.  “We are pushing outward expansion and distribution and really looking into the Mint Hill area,” said Sales Manager Brandon.  “Sarah carries a lot of our beers here at Pour 64, and you can find us at some Harris Teeters.”  Town Brewing delighted crowds with Spratt’s, their signature premium golden lager, and Broken Tarted, a raspberry hibiscus sour.

Triple C Brewing Company, located in the South End, has been a staple in the Charlotte community for the last decade.  “We’re just out here pouring and representing for South End!” said Denver.  “Right now we have an Oktoberfest, a Märzen lager; and then we have our 3C IPA, our staple West coast IPA.  They’re both right around 6% alcohol, both really smooth, easy-drinking beers.  Perfect for this kind of weather!”

Eleven Lakes Brewing Company from Cornelius was also on site pouring a variety of favorites like Sandbar Blonde and Northern Aggression Hazy IPA and seasonal varieties like Sweet Mama Yama and Apricot Habanero.  “We have a very good brewer who is also the owner,” explained John.  “That’s really key!”

Food trucks lined the east side of the soccer field offering up a variety of eats from Thrasher Dawgs, Chilaka Taco Lab, and A Little Taste of Chicago.  Sprinkles, Mama K’s Kettle Corn, I Scream for Ice Cream, and Sammy’s So Good all helped satisfy patrons’ sweet tooth!  Such a large variety of food vendors and brewers made for short lines.

In addition to bounce houses and yard games sponsored by Mint Hill Orthodontics, kids enjoyed visiting with Stevens’ Creek Nature Center’s “ambassador animal” Freedom the box turtle.  Nature Center Manager Kristen Haas shared information about Stevens’ Creek’s nature education and outdoor recreation programs.

As the sun went down over the baseball fields, Jay Hoff & Co took the stage.  A singer, songwriter and instrumentalist from Charlotte, NC, Jay Hoff had the crowd dancing and singing along to covers of a variety of songs they recognized from the radio.

Family Fun Music & Brews Night wouldn’t be possible without the generosity of sponsors like Edifice Construction, Mint Hill Orthodontics and Mint Hill Wil (State Farm).  “We’ve supported this event last summer and this summer,” said Dr. Little from Mint Hill Orthodontics, who sponsors the Family Fun Zone.  “It’s important to us to be part of the community.”

“I’m out here having a good one with my main man Tony from Pour 64,” said “Mint Hill Wil” from Wil Lawson State Farm.  “This guy sharpens my cornhole skills,” jokes Wil, “so I came out here specifically to play cornhole with Tony!”  For Wil, the night was part networking, part fundraiser – and all about having a good time.  For every person who scanned Mint Hill Wil’s QR code and sent their information to his agency for a quote, Wil donated $10 to the Mint Hill Scholarship fund.

“This was such a great way to end this summer’s Family Fun Night series!” said Mint Hill Events Assistant Cassie Brooks.  “We were thrilled to be able to combine this event with Music & Brews after last weekend’s dreary weather.”
