Late last week All About Beer magazine announced the dates for the Raleigh World Beer Festival. The 2012 event will be held April 14 in Moore Square.
Tickets will go on sale to subscribers of All About Beer Magazine on February 27, 2012. Tickets will go on sale to the general public on March 5, 2012. The festival offers two four-hour sessions. Standard admission to a single session is $40 in advance. Admission gets you an event program, tasting glass, and access to sample literally hundreds of different beers from all over the word, including all of local breweries from right here in the Triangle. There are also special VIP tickets available for $75 that give you access to certain beers not made available to the other event attendees. As in the past, the event is broken up into two sessions. The first session (afternoon session) runs from 12-4pm. The second session (evening session) runes from 6-10pm.
Tickets can be purchased online here or etix.com and at select retail outlets in the Triangle area.
If you plan to go this event I highly recommend you plan on getting your tickets as soon as they go on sale. This event has been known to sell out quickly in the past. If you wait too long you will find your only option is surfing craig’s list for tickets at inflated prices.
Note: The pictures above and below were taken on my recent trip to Portland Oregon where I was fortunate enough to sample many fine local brews.
