“We started the North Carolina section of the festival a few years ago as a way to point out our local breweries” said Daniel Bradford, World Beer Festival President and Producer. “With so many new breweries popping up in the Triangle and in the state, we are proud to display such a large number of local breweries at this year’s festival.”

The World Beer Festival Raleigh is the largest beer festival of its kind in the area. Attendees have the opportunity to sample more than 250 different beer varieties during a four-hour afternoon or evening session.

“This is the only place you can sample and compare so many different types and brands of beers,” said Wesley Pellerin, festival attendee. “I have been coming for my birthday for years and each festival I find new beers to enjoy and appreciate.”
