Join us from 2-4 pm on Saturday, May 20th for a guided tasting of 8 varieties of cheese paired with 4 Steel String beers. Each beer will be paired with 2 kinds of cheese, one that complements the flavors of the beer and one that contrasts.
Local cheesemonger and fromage evangelist Alison Cameron will lead the tasting and drop serious knowledge about the origins and specifications of each cheese. Expect a mix of cheeses sourced near and far.
Steel String’s Hoopla Czar, Eric Knight, will talk a bit about the beers being tasted. We will choose from a range of styles and flavor palates.
*Tickets for this tasting are required prior to the day of the event*
Each ticket is $30 and includes all 8 samples of cheese and 4 8oz beers along with bread and crackers. We only have space available for 30 people.

On this day two years ago we hosted the first Cardinal Directions Beer Festival. We crunched 13 NC breweries and 650 people into the back 1/2 of our parking lot, and we had a great time. Two years later we have added a few more breweries, food trucks and attendees but our goal remains the same – showcase the best that NC Beer has to offer in a relaxed environment with good friends. Hope you will join us for year 3 on Sunday May 21st on the Carrboro Town Commons. #ncbeer #cardinaldirectionsbeerfest 📷: @beerstudy

(Pick Up The) Tempo our hoppy table Saison makes its way into bottles for the first time today. Truly a sign that spring has arrived and it’s time get movin’, shake off them cobwebs and cut a rug. Even on a Monday this zippy little beer makes us feel like dancing. #ncbeer #craftbeer #saison
Many tbank to the folks that accidentally filled my 64 oz enjoyment of Big Mon IPA. North Carolina may be cursed by a few too many right wing nut jobs, but there are fantastic outlets for preserved barley, including three breweries within a mile of my home. Life isgood in Carrboro.
Come grab yo tix! Our annual celebration of NC spring and Saisons is coming quick. Cardinal Directions Beer Festival brings 20+ of the best breweries in NC, local food trucks, and live music to our backyard for an afternoon of fun.
Tickets are available online http://bit.ly/2njbhif also in the taproom and at both Beer Study locations. $20 plus tax and fees = festival entry, tasting glass and 5 samples.
It all goes down Sunday, May 21st 1-5pm on the Carrboro Town Commons.

The Merry Franksters are back at it tonight with their killer hot dawgs, right up the street at Cliffs meat market.

It should be a lovely evening to get some patio time in. #ncbeer #hotdogsandbeer
A fresh batch of Cryin’ Holy DIPA on tap and in bottles is the first sign that this week is going to rule. Now that winter is officially over, bring on the patio weather.
