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!

Picture of the Week – Fullsteam Brewery!

<i>Fullsteam Brewery ~ 726 Rigsbee Ave - Durham, NC</i>

Fullsteam Brewery

 

I took this week’s picture while exploring Rigsbee Avenue in downtown Durham. Fullsteam Brewery is one of my favorite Triangle breweries. They make some great craft beers and the brewery serves as a great community gathering spot. It is a great place to catch up with friends, grab a bite to eat from local food trucks, and catch live music on the weekends. It is a very family friendly spot and it is not unusual to see people there with kids and their dog during the day, while it transitions to a more mature crowd during the busier evening hours. Fullsteam has done so much to help revitalize the Rigsbee Avenue Corridor. It is a must visit for NC beer lovers and visitors to the area looking to capture the vibe of downtown Durham.
