It’s Giving Tuesday and you can support a local non-profit by purchasing tickets to an amazing craft beer festival in Charlotte. The Queen City Brewers Festival benefits ACEing Autism, a program that helps families affected by autism in the Charlotte community to have access to specialized tennis programs designed to improve social skills, hand-eye coordination and physical fitness of participants ages 5-18 years old.
The multi-purpose exhibit hall and conference center, located less than 5 miles east of Uptown, neighbors Bojangles’ Coliseum, which was home to QCBF 2015.
The festival, presented by restaurant design and supply company Deacon Foodservice Solutions, spotlights Charlotte-area breweries, local vendors and the businesses that support the Charlotte brewery industry.
Festival-goers and participants alike can expect intimate sampling in roomier surroundings inside The Park’s Liberty Hall. Guests select between one of two tasting sessions – 12-3:30 p.m. or 5-8:30 p.m. – which is 30 minutes longer than previous years given the steady growth of participating brewery and cidery establishments, vendors, exhibitors and activity areas including a mini tennis court.
