The North Carolina Brewers and Music Festival is a celebration of music, North Carolina, and it’s craft brewing traditions. Each year there are featured local bands, as many NC brewers who can be there and free tastings of their finest brews for three full hours. This is an event open to the public, for those wishing to participate in the tastings, and those wishing to enjoy the live music and food vendors.
If you purchase a 21+ ticket, you will be given admission to the event, a program guide/schedule, and the right to try as many beers as you would like. After the 3 hour tasting period the brewers will transition to selling beer. (Pace yourselves!) If you are interested in a 20 and under or a Designated Driver ticket, you will receive a program guide/schedule, over 9 hours of live entertainment, and access to delicious local food vendors!
