Hey Everyone! The festival has been postponed! Tropical Storm Bonnie…

Hey Everyone! The festival has been postponed!

Tropical Storm Bonnie is not a fan of NC craft beer. We feel that under these weather conditions we can neither guarantee everyones safety and comfort nor provide the quality of experience you all deserve.

What this means –

1.We will look for a make up date in the coming months. Cardinal Directions Beer Festival 2016 will happen, that is a guarantee.

2. If you can’t make the new festival date we will happily refund your ticket, it means so much to us that so many of you supported the festival and Farmer Foodshare. If you want to hold onto your ticket, we will honor it when the festival is rescheduled. We will get this process started as soon as possible. If you have questions or concerns or to request a refund feel free to email me at eric@steelstringbrewery.com.

3. If you came from out of town today or just want a mini festival experience the brewery will be open as normal and we will pour some of our friends beers from the festival. Expect to see beers from Wicked Weed, Southern Pines, Burial, Appalachian Mountain Brewery and more..

We also recommend the Jaws Fest at the Baxter barcade going on today!

Thanks for understanding!
– Steel String Brewery

We will start checking folks into the festival at 1:45pm! You will need your photo ID. If you already bought a ticket you will need a physical copy or a copy on your phone. Tickets will be available at the festival entrance.

The weather might be a bit icky, sporadic rain storms. Plan accordingly, all the beer will be poured under a covered pavilion with a concrete floor, so mud and wetness should not be too much of an issue.
