Lake Norman's Favorite Craft Beer Shop & Taste 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. Currently, there is no other retailer dedicated solely to sale of craft beer in Mooresville.

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. We plan to offer weekly tasting events each Friday evening.

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.

Why Mooresville?

When owner Mark Moore was looking to open a craft beer bottle shop, he knew that Mooresville was the place he wanted to be. Having spent his youth here and graduating from Mooresville Senior High, this is the place that feels like home to him. “I moved around some after high school, but I always wanted to come back here. It seemed like the perfect place to start my business,” said Mark. He looks forward to reconnecting with friends over a great craft beer.
