April in North Carolina means NC Beer Month. Visit Winston-Salem, Lowes Foods, Nik Snacks and a few area chefs are teaming up to celebrate and commemorate NC Beer Month in a big way in 2016. Scroll to the bottom to see how!

North Carolina is one of the best states for craft brewing. We have more breweries than Virginia, Tennessee, South Carolina and Georgia COMBINED. And new ones are cropping up and popping up every day. We have award-winning breweries that boast multiple medals from the Great American Beer Festival and The World Beer Cup, a rich craft beer history and potential to set standards for the future.

All roads lead to Winston-Salem for NC Beer. Beer, culture and history meet you in the middle of the Old North State to greet you with hospitality and comfort just off the interstate. Winston-Salem is full of opportunities to sample North Carolina beer.

Foothills Brewing, Hoots Beer Co. and Small Batch Beer Co. all anchor Downtown and West End neighborhoods with a plethora of museums, bottle shops, restaurants and opportunities to sample.

Beer MONTH?! What a fabulously fun event! Craft beer is just gaining popularity and I know quite a few people who would really get into a month-long event for and about the many varieties of beer out there. It's so exciting that you will be traveling the event showcasing recipes. Best of luck to you, and have a blast!
