RALEIGH, N.C. (March 15, 2016) – Between the opening of New Belgium’s Asheville brewery and the arrival of Bill's Front Porch Pub & Brewery on the coast, a range of new beer experiences will reward travelers during April’s NC Beer Month celebration.
“The numbers alone are impressive,” said Wit Tuttell, executive director of Visit North Carolina, which sponsors NC Beer Month with the North Carolina Craft Brewers Guild. “The state has added more than 25 breweries in the last year to pass the 150 mark. But the real excitement lies in the quality and variety of the beer and the experiences in destinations from the mountains to the coast, in cities and towns and colorful communities. Beer travelers will find new reasons to love North Carolina.”
Here’s a glance at newly emerging points on the brewery landscape:
NCBeerMonth.com’s events section is loaded with festivals, dinners, tastings and more activities throughout April. Here’s a sampling from the mountains to the coast:

Combined with everything else, North Carolina is a must-visit state for beer travel.”
