Twenty-one Craft Brewers Lined Up for TwinCity Taps

as seen in Smitty's Notes...

If you like beer (I know, "if"), downtown's BB&T Ballpark will be the place to be on Saturday, August 13 for the inaugural Twin City Taps craft beer festival. There's a time and place to enjoy one of the mass, factory-produced beers, but this isn't it. TwinCity Taps will showcase only smaller, craft brewers. They're all North Carolina breweries, and they make really great beer.

Twin City Taps has lined up 21 brewers who will be on hand to pour brews and talk about them. The line up of brewers continues to grow, but here's the participating breweries as of July 19:

1. Aviator Brewing Company
2. Big Boss Brewing Company
3. Carolina Blonde
4. Carolina Brewery
5. Craggie Brewing Company
6. Foothills Brewing
7. French Broad Brewing Company
8. Fullsteam
9. Green Man Brewery
10. Highland Brewing Company
11. Liberty Steakhouse and Brewery
12. Loes Brewing Company
13. LoneRider Brewing Company
14. Mother Earth Brewing Company
15. Mystery Brewing Company
16. Natty Greene's Pub & Brewing Company
17. Olde Hickory Brewery
18. Red Oak Brewery
19. The Duck-Rabbit Craft Brewery
20. The Olde Mecklenburg Brewery
21. Weeping Radish Farm Brewing

By the way, let's set the record straight. TwinCity Taps is not the same beer festival as the one held at TanglewoodPark. TwinCity Taps is a completely new, smaller event that is limiting ticket sales to no more than 4,000 to assure that all guests have easy access to parking, restrooms, food and most import of all . . . beer! General admission tickets to Twin City Taps are $35, and VIP tickets are $55. For more information or to purchase tickets please visit call (336) 714-6871or go to the box office at BB&T Ballpark.
