Ghostface Brewing is more than just a spooky name. “We like to make new experiences, being adventurous, shaking things up and trying new things," owner Mike Cuddy told the Statesville Record & Landmark. Read on to learn about a few of the unique elements of the Mooresville brewery and taproom.
A labor of love. Ghostface Brewing is the culmination of more than a decade of Mike's homebrewing hobby. And because Mike's wife is also a beer lover, and one with a sensitivity to gluten, many of the brewery's offerings are brewed with an enzyme that removes nearly all gluten.
There's plenty of beer—and even more room. The 1,200-square foot taproom features Whether it's the Banshee IPA, Pucker Up Strawberry Sour, or Cuddy's Irish Red, There are up to 20 beers are on draft at Ghostface, such as the A Knight to Remember milk stout and Pucker Up Strawberry Sour. The 1,200-square foot taproom—which seats up to 60—is part of a 2,500-square foot facility.
Ghostface shows locals lots of love. Public displays of affection for area residents and businesses abound at the brewery. That begins with the decor, as one wall is adorned in with the names of those who helped fund the brewery. Then there are there's the food and drinks offerings. Banshee IPA's name, for example, is a nod to the Cinemax TV show filmed in Mooresville. Meanshile, wings, pizza, and calzones prepared by nearby Davidson Pizza Company.
If D9 Brewing Company has a specialty, it's beers with stories. The tale of the brewery's Witness Double Fermented Ale, for instance, is one of an underdog's triumph. It's an ultra-potent, 14% alcohol beer, even though it in no way lives up to strong beer stereotypes—it's light in color, infused with hints of peach, and can be safely served in mugs that aren't made of iron.
Each of the brewery's creations has a similarly complex character, yet they remain an intentionally motley bunch. In accordance with founder and CEO Andrew Durstewitz's wishes, they range from American ales to Viking heathers. There is one final commonality, though: patrons can sample the whole spectrum of them at the brewery's Cornelius taproom, open five days a week.

Despite it's name, there's no real mystery about The Unknown Brewing Co, but there is a very distinctive ethos. This craft brewery subscribes to a culture of adventure and uncertainty, and it invites others aboard via its boundary-pushing beers and exciting, one-of-a-kind events. The lifestyle they promote gels with what they dub "bucket list beers," though they admit on their website, "Our beer is one thing we take serious, everything else in life we don’t." Read on to learn more about some of the seriously crafted beers created by these seriously unserious folks:
Over the Edge American IPA: "We've never been to India, and neither has this beer," the brewers confess when describing this American-style IPA, which they distinguish from its Eastern counterpart with five grains, West Coast hops, and a citrusy flavor (6.9% ABV).
Pre Game: This session ale boasts a gold color, low level of bitterness, and lightness that makes it an ideal starting beer for what could be a long night (4.5% ABV).
Dirty Commie Heathen: From the Now or Never Series, this Russian imperial stout is made with 4,000 pounds of grain and bourbon-soaked cherries (12.4% ABV).
