Traditionally, Governor Roy Cooper will proclaim October as NC Beer Month. The proclamation reaffirms North Carolina’s vibrant and rich craft beer heritage. From locally malted grains to expertly crafted lagers and ales, North Carolina has gained international recognition for craft beer excellence. Beginning in 1985 with Weeping Radish, the independent craft beer industry has grown to 420+ breweries today. Known as “The State of Southern Beer”, the industry contributes more than $2.26B to the state’s economy, and has been instrumental in revitalizing many small towns and cities throughout the state.
The independent North Carolina craft beer industry is proud to serve our citizens and is committed to helping to build the communities we serve. We invite you to join the month-long celebration of North Carolina brewing craftsmanship by visiting your local brewery for a socially-distanced pint, or picking up curbside beer-to-go. Our breweries look forward to welcoming you!
