Upon arriving, we were greeted with friendly volunteers everywhere with organized parking and easy access into the venue. The relatively new park provided a beautiful grassy park setting and partnered with some fabulous NC weather, conditions were set for a great day of beer tasting!
The tents were set up for easy access and lines were at a minimum. VIP tickets allowed for guests to taste for over an hour before the general public arrived. There was a great mix of local NC breweries as well as some well known national breweries. There was also a chance to sample and meet some of the newest breweries in the state, still in the development stages with their beers/breweries.
Not only was the event a hit, but two non-profits benefited from the event, Meg's Smile Foundation and the NC Brewers' Guild.
Well done 919Beer! We hope the event will be back again next year! We appreciate how well organized the event was and the ability to get to know some local breweries on a more personal and relaxed level.
