3rd Charlotte Craft Beer Week Takes The Queen City By Storm
Charlotte, NC – Charlotte Craft Beer Week is coming up soon so make sure to clear your schedules and get ready to partake in the best craft beer week in the Carolinas! Going on from March 16th – 25th; its ten days slam- packed with beer events all around the Queen City.
CCBW was created with the intention of spreading the craft beer message. It promotes businesses that are involved with the craft beer movement, rewards seasoned craft beer drinkers with access to rare beers, fun events, and the opportunity to meet brewers, and also provides those who are new to the craft beer scene a variety of events to choose from to further their beer education. These events are crafted purposefully and incorporate all facets of beer culture.
Charlotte’s craft beer scene has exploded over the last few years”, says Darrin Pikarsky, creator of Charlotte Craft Beer Week and The Charlotte Beer Club, which boasts 1,400 members. “Five years ago Charlotte didn’t even have a brewery, now we are about to launch our fifth and sixth by this summer” says Pikarsky.
This is the 3rd year for Charlotte’s own craft beer week; a trend that is catching on throughout the Carolinas. Offering a diversity of events, each individually approved by the CCBW team, there will be something for everyone; beer-lovers, novices, and non-drinkers alike. This unique, grassroots celebration is dedicated to sharing the best locally-available beers from around the globe. Past events include Brawley’s Black & Blue, Beasts of the East vs Best of the West -a showdown of some of the best beers from both coasts, amazing beer dinners, an alley full of incredible beers and circus side show attractions at Common Market, and numerous other events and specials throughout the Charlotte area.
Brawley’s Beverage will once again host the kickoff party on March 16th at the Visulite Theater. Tickets will include entry to hear incredible music as well as samples of extremely rare beers. Be sure not to miss this awesome event.
