NC Public House at the State Fair


We are moving!! Due to overwhelming support of the NC Public House, we have a NEW LOCATION in 2021! Come and see us in the South Dorton Arena Lobby - just across from the State Fair SkyGazer Ferris Wheel!


The NC Public House will showcase dozens of breweries, wineries, cideries, and craft soda makers from across North Carolina. Daily offerings will include several different styles of craft beer, wine, cider, and soda, including award-winning examples of each.


Patrons of the NC Public House will be able to purchase a Beer+Wine ticket which provides for your choice of two servings of wine, cider or beer. Wine servings are 3 ounces each, and beer or cider servings are 8 ounces each. Tickets may be purchased in advance here, or during the fair at the entrance of the NC Public House. Beer+Wine tickets will be $10 each, and tickets for craft sodas may be purchased on-site for $5 each. 


This popular attraction is a partnership with the N.C. Craft Brewers Guild and the N.C. Wine and Grape Council. The Guild will use a portion of the proceeds for research and marketing benefiting North Carolina’s craft beer industry. North Carolina is home to 350+ craft breweries and 185 wineries.
