Olde Mecklenburg Brewery is brewing more than just beer for the holiday season. Kicking off on Thursday, Dec. 9 and continuing on Dec. 10 and 11, the brewery will have its own German-style Christmas Market. An array of arts and crafts and other goodies will be available for the gift buying season. Oh, and even better, you can down a beer (maybe the seasonal Yule Bock?), while you browse. Dec. 9-11, 4 p.m.-9 p.m. Olde Mecklenburg Brewery, 215 Southside Drive. For more information, call 704-525-5644 or visit www.oldemeckbrew.com.
