Queen City Brewers Festival
The Queen City Brewers Festival (QCBF) IS Charlotte on Tap. Premiering at the Neighborhood Theatre (511 E. 36th Street, Charlotte, NC, 28205), on Saturday, February 4, 2012, QCBF is exclusive to the Charlotte-area breweries that are putting the Queen City on the craft beer map. The event will feature a diverse selection of beer styles and flavors to taste and learn about from official brewery representatives.
With Charlotte’s craft beer market exploding in recent years, the goal of this event is to spotlight the city’s emerging craft breweries while bringing awareness to the event’s nonprofit host, Partners for Parks, a nonprofit, nonpartisan foundation that seeks to promote and enhance parks, recreation and open space in neighborhoods throughout Mecklenburg County and the surrounding area.
More than thirty craft beers will be on hand with each brewery showcasing its full lineup of beers. Brewers are encouraged to bring one “super” flavor or style of beer especially for QCBF, as the event takes place the day before the Super Bowl.
QCBF will partner with Charlotte-based food vendors, and will feature works by local artists. Guests will also enjoy live music. There will be two tasting sessions: 1-4PM and 6-9PM. Admission is $20 per session and tickets go on sale Thursday, December 8 at 11AM. Guests must have a valid photo ID and be 21 years of age or older to enter the festival.
