North Carolina is for beer lovers. Craft breweries flourish famously in the mountains, with urban flair in the Piedmont and with character along the coast. The number of breweries stands at more than 250 statewide — it’s hard to keep an up-to-date count with new breweries constantly rising on the beerscape, but we know that North Carolina has the highest total between Pennsylvania and Texas.
Asheville, Raleigh, Durham, Charlotte, Hickory — all celebrate regional beer culture with festivals, beer weeks and other events. In April 2018, Visit North Carolina and the North Carolina Craft Brewers Guild will join forces to host NC Beer Month for its sixth year.
Why celebrate North Carolina beer? Because the state is one of the best for craft brewing with unique and exceptional flavors. Medals from the Great American Beer Festival and The World Beer Cup. Raves for Ninja Porter, Death by Hops, Black Radish and Papa Jade IPA. Beer to be tasted by the flight and savored by the session. Beer that abides by the Reinheitsgebot purity law and beer that innovates on a rich agricultural heritage.

The Charlotte area shines as a beer destination with three dozen breweries in operation or on the way, including Olde Mecklenburg, NoDa, Lenny Boy, Birdsong, Sycamore, Heist, Legion and Free Range. Visit a few in one day with Charlotte Brews Cruise, Charlotte Brewery Tours or Trolley Pub Charlotte. Grab a pint at Growlers Pourhouse or VBGB Beer Hall & Garden. Fill your growler at the Beer Growler, Tank’s Tap at 7th Street Public Market or a choice bottle shop like Carolina Beer Temple or Rhino Market & Deli. And for brews, sports and outdoor adventure, don’t miss the beer gardens at BB&T Ballpark, Spectrum Center and the U.S. National Whitewater Center.
