Beer sampling and live music comes to Charlotte

June 2, 2012 by  

Beer is quite arguably one of the world’s oldest prepared beverages and some believe that its production can be traced all the way back to 9500 B.C. Today, as that process of brewing continues and has become even more refined, people are always on the lookout for beers with a new taste and a richer quality. This year, the beer-loving residents of Charlotte will have the opportunity to find what they may have been seeking at the inaugural Brew Stash Bash festival.

Beginning at 1:00 pm on Saturday, June 16, 2012, the US National Whitewater Center will be sponsoring a Carolina craft beer sampling event. There will be sundry microbreweries represented, 11 of which are name-checked on the USNWC website. They include Olde Mecklenburg Brewery and NoDa Brewery, with others to be confirmed. The local breweries are sure to receive much publicity, and they could greatly benefit from business card printing to further promote locations, prices, specials etc.

The event is not only designed to appeal to beer-lovers, but there will also be food (including a range of nacho dishes suitable for both meat-eaters and vegetarians) and live music for the entire family to enjoy. Starting at 2:00 pm, the event will feature music performances by Cory Chisel & the Wandering Sons, Brown Bird, and the Farewell Drifters, given the day a folk and bluegrass feel.

The event, including the music, is free and open to the public. Tickets for beer tasting, however, may be purchased at a rate of $5 for 4 tickets.
