Creative Loafing to Host Second Annual Craft Beer & Burger Festival
CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA – Charlotte’s Creative Loafing will host its 2nd Annual Craft Beer and Burger Festival April 16, 2016, on the grounds of the AvidXchange Music Factory. The event will offer samplings from 30 breweries, as well as tastes from local restaurants vying for the title of “Creative Loafing’s Best Burger.” Sweetwater and Devils Backbone will be the key beer sponsors.“As the city's arts and entertainment paper of record, Creative Loafing has championed Charlotte's craft beer scene since it first started bubbling,” notes Aaron Stamey, sales manager at Creative Loafing. “It and the local food scene are important components in our mission of being the go-to source for all things cool, fresh and authentic. We're excited to celebrate all of that we built on with last year’s festival.”
There will be a VIP session (12:30-2 p.m.) that will feature special releases and beers from each brewery, with a General Admission open tasting session to follow (2-6 p.m.).
The event will benefit the 2nd Harvest Food Bank of the Carolinas. The inaugural event in 2015 was able to raise over $8,000.00 in 2015 to help Second Harvest feed the hungry in our community.
