North Carolina Launches First Beer Month

April will mark North Carolina’s first official month dedicated to the state’s many breweries

Beer-related events will take place across the state.

Breweries, restaurants, and hotels throughout the Tar Heel state will welcome their first "Beer Month," or four weeks dedicated to festivals, special events, and beer-themed tour packages across North Carolina. With 80-plus known breweries statewide, as well as the country’s reigning "Beer City USA" (Asheville, N.C.), North Carolina hopes to highlight the state’s vibrant and growing industry.

The event’s website showcases specific cities and regions worth visiting while also outlining several beer trip ideas in the state’s other brew capitals, including Charlotte and the greater Raleigh/Durham area. Some cities are even organizing beer-themed weekend excursions like Asheville’s Beer City Weekend with Highland Brewing. The weekend will include an optional stay at Aloft hotel, a LaZoom comedy bus tour of Riverbend Malt House, a Highland Brewing Company tour, and dinner at Lexington Avenue Brewery.

Several breweries will also celebrate Beer Month with special offers like General Lenoir’s OId Ale at Howard Brewing Company in Lenoir, N.C. The limited-time ale will be based on an actual handwritten recipe from General William Lenoir, a Revolutionary War hero who once lived nearby.
