This weekend I was able to take advantage of the nice weather by attending Brewgaloo NC Craft Beer Festival, an annual event that is put on in downtown Raleigh. It was nice to be able to spend the afternoon enjoying a few of the best craft beers that our state has to offer, with some food and a great group of close friends. For those of you who haven’t heard of Brewgaloo before, essentially it is a block party in the heart of downtown where breweries and food trucks from all over the state come together. For the big-name guys, it’s a place for them to continue to grow their name, but for the smaller brand breweries or Restaurants it is an awesome opportunity to promote themselves to those of us who haven’t heard of them before. For $30 you essentially get 25 raffle tickets, and then you walk around leisurely beer truck to beer truck with the option of paying 2 tickets for a sample, or 5 tickets for a full pint. It’s also a great place for you to run into people who you haven’t seen in a while, as I think I saw 30 people that I knew from my time at NC State. So it was nice to be able to catch up with so many friends, while drinking great beer! This was just my first year in attendance, but I definitely see myself going back next year!
I was glad to see that one of my local favorites, White Street Brewery, from right here in downtown Wake Forest was even there! It was nice to see a strong local presence in such a large turnout. If you have not been, and you find yourself walking around downtown one of these sunny afternoons, it’s definitely worth going into and seeing for yourself! Their White Street Kolsch is probably their most recognized beer, but also my go to whenever I find myself there!
