The NC Rare & Vintage Beer Tasting (previously the Raleigh Rare & Vintage Beer Tasting) was created to provide beer enthusiasts with the ultimate experience!
We provide beers poured by 50 different brewery representatives in an intimate environment, allowing attendants the opportunity to learn what makes these beers special and meet the brewers that created them. Brewers bring between 1 and 4 beers each, and in varying styles, leading to a smorgasbord that is sure to please every kind of beer connoisseur!
This year, we have increased the square footage of the tents by over 500 sqft in addition to an expanded outdoor area— without increasing the number of tickets being sold. In addition, there will be buffet style food options and passed hors d’oeuvres for you to pair with your beverages.
100% of the net proceeds from ticket sales will be going towards the awareness mission of Pint for Prostates, a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity founded by beer writer and prostate cancer survivor Rick Lyke. We’ve raised over $50,000 in the last four years, and $13K just in the last year!
We have a couple more surprises planned this year. Details will be announced when they’re ready!
We have partnered with The Bridge Bus to provide you free transportation from Raleigh to Durham and back. For those visitors who want to stay near the event, our partner this year is the Aloft hotel in Downtown Durham.
Attendance is limited and tickets have historically sold fast!
