We had so much fun yesterday! If you were there, we want to thank you for supporting NC beer and our non-profit partner Farmer Foodshare. If you missed out, there is always next year. We hope that we have found the permanent home for the festival at the Carrboro Town Commons. Check out the video below to see how it all went down.

Pretty great tap list right now, more Neutral Milk Porter on the way. There also a good chance that well put Nitro Neutral on a little later this week, sometimes chocolatey and creamy is exactly what you need in triple digit heat.

The 2nd annual Cardinal Directions Beer Festival is a little over a week away! Here is what you need to know to have good time next Saturday.
-We will start giving out wristbands, glassware and beer tickets to folks with tickets at 3:30pm. The pouring will start at 4pm. There will also be a line to buy tickets if you haven’t already purchased them. You will need an I.D. and a physical copy of your ticket, or have it on your phone.
-The beer pouring area is covered but much of the festival ground is exposed to the elements. Staying hydrated is important, we will have bottles of water but we recommend bringing your own, also don’t forget your sunscreen.
-There is limited parking around the town commons. If coming from out of town we recommend parking at the various Town of Carrboro public lots and walking a few minutes to the commons, please refer to this map – http://gis.ci.carrboro.nc.us/GIS/downloads/printmap/BWParking.pdf

If you still haven’t purchased your tickets, head to cardinaldirections.bpt.me
We’re excited to welcome everyone to Carrboro next Saturday!

It’s a banner weekend for our sour beer program! First off we have our release of Dry Hopped Pretty Polly tomorrow, try it on draft and get bottles to take home, $13/500ml bottle. To celebrate we are letting go of a very limited amount of the remaining Obvious Child bottles.

Secondly, we filled new white wine barrels with a golden sour ale called Poor Laurie. This will be our first white wine barrel aged beer.

Third, we took the delivery of a bunch of NC grown blackberries. These are heading for Rain & Snow, a dark sour aged in Heaven Hill bourbon barrels. Look for this beer closer to winter. #ncgrown

Lastly, Eric and Jesus are off to Asheville for @wickedweedbrewing Funkatorium Invitational Festival! We are honored to share our beer with such esteemed company. Hope to see a bunch of familiar faces! #ncbeer #sourbeer #funkasheville

Oh and Cardinal Directions is in two weeks! 💥

Dry Hopped Pretty Polly is back this weekend, and we will have it on draft starting Saturday at noon for a limited time as well as available for purchase in 500mL bottles to go ($13). I brewed the base for this beer in December, and it was really exciting to see it come together over the past 7 months. I think it developed into a really incredible beer.
