The third annual Queen City Brewers Festival (QCBF) will take place Saturday, February 1st, 2014. QCBF is exclusive to the Charlotte-area breweries that are putting the Queen City on the craft beer map. The event will feature a diverse selection of beer styles and flavors to taste and learn about from official brewery representatives.
With Charlotte’s craft beer market exploding in recent years, the goal of this event is to spotlight the city’s emerging craft breweries while bringing awareness to the event’s nonprofit host, Partners for Parks, a nonprofit, nonpartisan foundation that seeks to promote and enhance parks, recreation and open space in neighborhoods throughout Mecklenburg County and the surrounding area.
More than thirty craft beers will be on hand with each brewery showcasing its full lineup of beers. Brewers are encouraged to bring one “super” flavor or style of beer especially for QCBF, as the event takes place the day before the Super Bowl.
QCBF partners with Charlotte-based food and beverage vendors and will feature works by local artists. Guests will also enjoy live music. There will be two tasting sessions: 1-4PM and 6-9PM. The event’s home in 2014 is TBA so be sure to check back soon!
