Charlotte to raise a glass this month

November 8, 2013 by  

Residents of Mecklenbury County, including those in Charlotte, have the chance to sample some delicious beer at the Back Country Beer Fest.

Later this month, the Charlotte Museum of History and the Crafty Beer Guys are hosting a ‘Backcountry Beer Fest’. The event is designed to celebrate autumn. Those who attend, who must be 21 or older, can sample colonial beers, craft beers, and a syllabub.

There will also be tours of the Hezekiah Alexander house, a Revolutionary War era home and the oldest house in Mecklenbury County. The grounds of the museum are well-manicured and will provide a natural backdrop for the event.

The Charlotte Museum of History is an educational organization that seeks to better the community with its programs and special events. The site has local artifacts and items to preserve the history of Charlotte.

Organizers of this event may seek the help of printing companies to provide banner printing to advertise the Beer Fest. Handing out flyers is another way to promote this social affair. The event itself is also a good place for companies to advertise and for the museum to bring in more business.

Admission fees are $10 and $8 for museum members. This includes the beverage samplings. Being an individual member costs $40 and a household membership costs $65. Seniors can purchase a dual membership for $55.

The museum is located at 3500 Shamrock Drive in Charlotte, NC 28215. For more information call 704-968-5343. The event is to take place on November 16 from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm.
