Taste the State of Southern Beer
Taste the State of Southern Beer™
Exclusive Beer Tasting ExperienceOn August 21, 95 lucky NC craft beer enthusiasts will have the opportunity to Taste the State of Southern Beer™ with two guided samplings being offered exclusively to benefit the NC Craft Brewers Guild.
Choose from two award-winning tasting experiences, or make an evening of it and opt for both! Our brewers will come straight into your living room (by Zoom, of course) and provide you with the opportunity to meet the people behind the beer, take a virtual brewery tour, and lead you through a guided tasting of some of North Carolina's finest, yet hardest to come by, craft beers (beer included!)
In addition to the brewery tour guided tasting, these intimate sessions include engaging and interactive discussion about flavor profiles, style categories, stories behind beer names, the opportunity to ask questions and more.
Tickets are $60 per session. Sessions will take place via Zoom, and feature a Tasting Experience from an award-winning North Carolina brewery. Each registered participant will receive two 16 oz. cans per featured style (a total of four 16oz cans), shipped directly to your home. Must be 21+ years of age to sign for beer delivery. Shipment available within NC only. Register for your virtual tasting experience today, before they're gone - space is limited to the first 95 registrants!
Tasting Session I:
August 21st, 2020
5:30PM, Archetype Brewing Company: Click HERE to register for the event!Archetype Brewing Company has also seen its share of national recognition, winning the NC Brewers Cup Best in Show award in 2018 for its Belgian Strong Ale and winning Best Beer Label in the annual USAToday 10 Best contest.
Tasting Session II:
- Talking to Plants Belgian-style Witbier, 5.6% ABV
Inspired by the Jungian archetype, The Caregiver, Talking to Plants is our interpretation of a Belgian Wit. We use the traditional bitter orange peel and coriander, then pair it with an additional spice blend. Notes of bread crust, ginger, and citrus make for a bright and refreshing summer beer.
- The Explorer Tropical IPA, 6.8% ABV
Poignantly inspired by The Explorer archetype - Hopped with a combination of fruity Mosaic, Azacca and El Dorado, and piney spice from the Chinook hops and rye malt, it’s tropical and bold.
7:30PM, Brown Truck Brewery: Click HERE to register for the event!Brown Truck Brewery is a nationally recognized brewery that made a big splash in 2016, its opening year, by taking home three Great American Beer Festival (GABF) medals in addition to recognition as Very Small Brewing Company of the Year and Very Small Brewing Company Brewer of the Year.
- #26 Lemon Meringue Gose, 4.5% - Gose brewed with lactose and lemon meringue purée. Tangy, creamy, tart, and smooth.
- #56 American Brown Lager, 3.8% - Fermented with our house lager yeast strain, this brown lager is packed with luscious chocolate and caramel notes. Clean with a dry finish, subtle nutty and roasty notes. Well-balanced and a perfect blend of malt and noble hops.
