Lake Norman's Favorite Craft Beer Shop & Tap Room


Ultimate Ales was created to serve the residents of the extended Mooresville/Lake Norman area with local, regional, and national craft beers plus select imports.

At Ultimate Ales you can expect to be treated as a part of the family. We strive to offer top notch service in a fun and casual atmosphere. We don’t serve food but you are more than welcome to bring your own or schedule delivery. We started with over 300 different beer brands and 6 taps and grew from there. A variety of packaging options are available to suit your needs. 6-pack cans and bottles, 4-packs, single bottles, growlers, build your own six pack.

Order a draft beer and sip while you shop or sit and hang out a while. Don’t see something you like? Please let us know. As long as it is available in NC through normal distribution channels we will make every effort to stock it for you. Be sure to follow our social media pages for fun events and the latest and greatest additions to our inventory.

Why Craft Beer?

People who love and appreciate craft beer do so because of the unique personality of each brew. If you are looking for the plain or ordinary, you may want to stick with the mass manufactured beer you can pick up at any store. If you’re looking for something a little more adventurous and innovative, however, we know we can find a craft beer, or two or three, that you are going to love. Craft beers are brewed with love, and each beer reflects the distinct style and personality of its brewer. Brewers are artists, and they study and perfect their craft just as any chef or winemaker. But don’t take our word for it. Come in and sample some craft beer and find a new favorite.
