NCBeer Month

NCBeer Month Postponed - Unfortunately the outbreak and spread of COVID-19 has forced our industry to put this year’s NCBeer Month plans on hold.  For the safety of our customers, employees and business owners, and in accordance with state guidelines, we are postponing the celebrations until it is clearly safe to resume our normal lives. 


This April, celebrate NCBeer Month!

NCBeer Month is a time for North Carolinians and tourists alike to explore the independent craft breweries of our state and savor a pint of finely crafted local beer.  From big cities to small towns, North Carolina has more than 320 breweries and brewpubs – the most in the American South – making independent craft beer an essential part of our state’s experience. 

Join us for a pint in The State of Southern Beer 


NCBeer Month Events Calendar

Throughout NC Beer Month, special events from the mountains to the coast will connect beer lovers with local brews that highlight the talent and creativity of our acclaimed craft breweries.  The NC Craft Brewers Guild has partnered with the NCBeerGuys to provide you with a calendar of special events happening across the state.
