We offer FREE tours every Saturday and Sunday. You do not need to register. The tour guide will come around the Tap House before tours and invite everyone to join. We firmly believe that all tours are better if enjoyed with a beer so we recommend having a Primal Flight before the tour starts to help you decide which beer to get a pint of and bring on the tour.

Please schedule your private tour in advance by going to the Hit Us Up section of this website and filling out the form at our Schedule a Private Event section of the website.

5. Are kids and people under the age of 21 allowed at the brewery?
Yes. Primal Brewery is not a bar. We are a gathering place and people of all ages are welcome. Those under the age of 21 must be accompanied by an adult and are not allowed to purchase beer or wine but may purchase soft drinks.

6. Are dogs allowed at the brewery?
Friendly dogs are allowed at the brewery but must be leashed and may only be taken into the Beer Garden or Tap House. Dogs are not allowed in the brewery at any time. At Primal Brewery, we strive to provide an atmosphere that is warm and inviting for everyone…a gathering place if you will. Because of this we cannot allow unleashed dogs on our property or dogs that are barking, aggressive or in any way annoying or frightening to our customers. If we need to ask you to bring your dog home, please don’t be offended.

7. Can I purchase a growler of beer at the brewery?
Yes. You can purchase 32 oz. or 64 oz. growlers at the brewery and have them filled with your favorite Primal beer. Already have a growler…no problem! Bring in your own growler and we’ll thoroughly clean it and fill with your favorite Primal beer.

8. Do you sell kegs of beer?
We sell kegs of beer out of the Tap House. Our kegs come in two sizes: Sixtel or 1/2 BBL. Ask your Primal Bartender for current pricing on your favorite beer and let them know whether or not you have a “party pump” or if we’ll need to supply one for you. Please note that all keg sales will include a keg deposit and/or equipment deposit which is returned to you at the time that you return the keg and/or equipment.

9. Do you serve food?
Yes. In addition to the typical beer snacks we have a full service Food Truck on premises at all times. See our Events calendar to learn what food truck will be on site when you visit. Also, remember that you are more than welcome to bring a picnic or have something delivered from one of Huntersville’s finest restaurants.

10. Where can I find Primal Brewery beer outside of the brewery?
Primal Brewery is expanding its beer offering to retail and restaurant/bar locations throughout the Lake Norman and Charlotte region. See the Beer Finder page for draft and retail locations.
