Virtual Beer Festival scheduled for August 21, 2020. State of Southern Beer sampler to offer virtual North Carolina beer tasting.
The North Carolina Craft Brewers Guild (NCCBG), a non-profit organization, is offering North Carolina beer fans an exclusive opportunity to taste the State of Southern Beer while maintaining a safe social distance- a very social distance!
Each session, to be held via Zoom, will feature a guided tasting experience hosted by an award winning North Carolina brewery. Those registered will receive two 16 oz. cans per featured style (a total of four 16 oz. cans) that will be shipped to them directly.
This unique virtual inaugural sampler tasting experience is scheduled for August 21, 2020. Participants can choose from two premium tasting experiences from the first two featured breweries, Brown Truck Brewery of High Point and Archetype Brewing based in Asheville- a town already on the map as a craft beer destination. Tickets, which are $60 per sessions (but, why not splurge and opt for both sessions) are available at the participating breweries websites
A portion of the proceeds benefits the NCCBG’s work to support and promote the independent breweries of North Carolina and to position the state as a leader among the top craft breweries in America.
Tickets are $60 per session. Sessions will take place via Zoom, and feature a Tasting Experience from an award-winning North Carolina brewery. Each registered participant will receive two 16 oz. cans per featured style (a total of four 16oz cans), shipped directly to your home. Must be 21+ years of age to sign for beer delivery. Shipment available within NC only.

Tasting Session I:
5:30PM, Archetype Brewing Company: Click HERE to register for the event!
Archetype Brewing Company has also seen its share of national recognition, winning the NC Brewers Cup Best in Show award in 2018 for its Belgian Strong Ale and winning Best Beer Label in the annual USAToday 10 Best contest.
- Talking to Plants Belgian-style Witbier, 5.6% ABV
Inspired by the Jungian archetype, The Caregiver, Talking to Plants is our interpretation of a Belgian Wit. We use the traditional bitter orange peel and coriander, then pair it with an additional spice blend. Notes of bread crust, ginger, and citrus make for a bright and refreshing summer beer.
- The Explorer Tropical IPA, 6.8% ABV
Poignantly inspired by The Explorer archetype – Hopped with a combination of fruity Mosaic, Azacca and El Dorado, and piney spice from the Chinook hops and rye malt, it’s tropical and bold.
Tasting Session II:
7:30PM, Brown Truck Brewery: Click HERE to register for the event!
Brown Truck Brewery is a nationally recognized brewery that made a big splash in 2016, its opening year, by taking home three Great American Beer Festival (GABF) medals in addition to recognition as Very Small Brewing Company of the Year and Very Small Brewing Company Brewer of the Year.
- #26 Lemon Meringue Gose, 4.5% – Gose brewed with lactose and lemon meringue purée. Tangy, creamy, tart, and smooth.
- #56 American Brown Lager, 3.8% – Fermented with our house lager yeast strain, this brown lager is packed with luscious chocolate and caramel notes. Clean with a dry finish, subtle nutty and roasty notes. Well-balanced and a perfect blend of malt and noble hops.
A portion of the event proceeds benefit the North Carolina Craft Brewers Guild (NCCBG), a 501c6 not-for-profit advocacy group supporting the independent craft brewers of our state through advocacy and education. North Carolina has over 330 independent craft breweries and brewpubs, each one serving as a local gathering spot for their communities. From hosting run clubs and yoga classes, to pet adoption events and trivia nights, our breweries have become part of the fabric of your towns and cities. We are “The State of Southern Beer™” and rank among the best craft beer states in the nation.
The NCCBG appreciates your support for the North Carolina independent beer community through these difficult times.
