Grab a brew, it's North Carolina Beer Month.
Wake County has a smattering of breweries from Wake Forest in the north to Fuquay-Varina in the south. Derek Allman, marketing manager for Raleigh's Convention and Visitors Bureau, said the breweries are part of what helps to fill the calendar all month long with new beer releases, beer dinners and festivals.
In the end, it wasn't too difficult to find something going on in Wake County that's centered around beer.
"No day in Beer Month goes without a beer event," Allman said on the 919 Beer Podcast.
To help celebrate, Visit Raleigh made a beer passport to guide drinkers through Wake County breweries. Local breweries will stamp the passport when you get a drink. Work your way through the participating breweries, collect stamps and get free gear from Visit Raleigh when you submit your passport.
"(It's) just a great celebration of everything going on in the beer scene in North Carolina, not only Wake County and Raleigh, but North Carolina," Allman said. "There's a lot to celebrate."
