The beer taps will flow endlessly this month as local businesses celebrate the first annual North Carolina Beer Month.
Win Bassett, executive director of the North Carolina Brewers Guild, said the guild chose April as the month of celebration because there were already so many scheduled events related to the celebration of beer.
“For example, Hickory Hops is a beer festival that takes place in Hickory and there is a World Beer Festival held in Raleigh,” Bassett said.
Some local restaurants, including the Carolina Brewery, are focusing specifically on hosting events in honor of North Carolina Beer Month.
“In honor of North Carolina Beer Month, we have brewed our Myth Perpetuator Double IPA for the first time ever. We are also doing samplings at Weaver Street on April 21 and a beer luncheon on the 25th with beers from us that have never been tried before,” said Lauren Macaione, sales manager for the brewery.
