Today we are drinking the Black Radish out of the Weeping Radish Brewery – NC’s oldest microbrewery in celebration of their 30th anniversary this year. A dark German Lager, the Black Radish presents “clean lager character featuring mild hop bitterness with complementary roasted malt notes. In NC 30 years ago it was illegal for breweries to sell their own beer directly to consumers. This made it impossible for microbreweries to exist. In 1985 Uli Bennewitz, owner and founder at Weeping Radish, went to his local senator and together they passed a bill allowing microbreweries to sell their own beer on site. Uli started craft beer in NC on the path that continues today, we owe him more than we can ever say.
