Calling all beer lovers - Raleigh’s World Beer Festival is just around the corner and WRAL Out & About wants to help you get there! Enter today online for your chance to win two tickets to World Beer Festival on Saturday April 14th at Moore Square in downtown Raleigh (200 S. Blount St.) There are two four-hour sessions and the winner has their choice of which session to attend. The first session will be from noon to 4pm and the second session will be from 6pm to 10pm.
World Beer Festival attendees will be guided down the path of beer appreciation, explore the use of certain ingredients and brewing methods, learn how to select beers to enhance a culinary experience, and experience the history behind the beer styles. This path will include “gardens” and “villages” like the Flying Saucer Draught Emporium Beer Garden, the Art of Beer Garden, a NC Brewers Beer Garden, The Art of Beer Village, plus many more! At these beer gardens, guests will get a chance to sample hundreds of beers, including some local beer from the home state of North Carolina. At the new feature this year, The Art of Beer Village, you will get to listen to presentations about off- flavors, the state’s own malt house and how farmers are learning to grow hops in North Carolina, all while tasting beer.
Nothing goes better with beer than live music and the World Beer Festival completely understands that. There will be live bands and artists performing throughout the entire day, beginning at noon. On the main stage, you can see Fireside String Band, Po Boyz, The Family, and The Fritz. At the VIP lounge be sure to check out Voodoo Flute and Paul Bowmar Trio. And if you get hungry while sampling all that World Beer Festival has to offer, there will be about ten food vendors to choose from, and beers best friend, pizza from the Mellow Mushroom! There will also be complimentary bottled water provided by Woody’s at City Market!
WRAL Out & About will draw winners on Monday, April 9, at 6 p.m. Good luck!
