September marks the beginning the busy festival season in the Triangle. Kicking things off is Beericana, a craft beer & music festival this Saturday, September 10th at Sugg Farm Park in Holly Springs. Beericana features 70 breweries from across North Carolina and beyond, 20 food trucks, and 3 live bands. Entry to the festival gets you unlimited tastings from the breweries. Food will be available for purchase from the many food trucks. To plan your day and map out what breweries and trucks you want to try visit the event website to see the full list of breweries and food trucks.
Tickets are $45 for general admission, $75 for VIP (with 2 hours of early entry), and $15 for designated drivers. I enjoyed the VIP experience last year and think it is well worth the price. While this isn’t one of those festivals that gets ridiculously crowded it is still really nice to get in early and avoid the lines. Tickets can be purchased online at Beericana.com.
Please note that no children are allowed at Beericana and a valid photo identification must be presented. Check out the FAQ on the the event website for additional details.

Shop Local Raleigh presents the third annual Brewgaloo local beer festival on Saturday April 26th (2-10pm) in downtown Raleigh’s City Plaza. Brewgaloo 2014will feature more than 40 craft breweries from North Carolina including several favorites from right here in the Triangle. There will also be 30 local food trucks on hand to feed the hungry crowd and live music provided on two stage from 11 different local bands.
General admission is free and includes a pint glass (special unbreakable acrylic souvenir glasses will be available while supplies last). Beer is sold by the pint or by the taste. 1 token= 1 pint; 1 token= a taster card with 5 samples available.
This event supports Shop Local Raleigh and its mission to sustain programs that strengthen our local businesses.
As with any event, I always recommend getting there early to beat the crowds. It is also smart to utilize public transportation like the free R-Line and have a designated driver. Enjoy NC Beer Month!
