The NC Craft Brewers Guild is very excited to announce that for the first time ever, NC State Fair attendees will be able to purchase a sampler of NC beer or wine on fairgrounds. This exciting opportunity will be available to fair-goers via the new Our State Public House in Heritage Circle. You might remember taking in the flower show or grabbing some hush puppies at the Old Grist Mill in past years, but this year you have the added bonus of trying some of the delicious brews of North Carolina.
The Our State Public House will be open from 12 P.M.-8:30 P.M. daily throughout the run of the NC State Fair October 12th-22nd with abbreviated hours on opening day.
We are very excited to be showcasing North Carolina craft beer and wine as they are both agricultural products with rich history in North Carolina. (Want to know more about NC beer history? Take a gander at this Our State article on the story of NC beer.)
For a mere $10, attendees will be able to choose one of four different flights options in either the craft beer or wine categories.
Light Crisp, light-bodied beers
Hoppy Pale ales and IPAs showcasing hop flavor and aroma
Dark Full-bodied, sweeter beers ranging from amber to brown
Carolina Sampler A mixed sampler of the best NC has to offer
Red Fruity, full-bodied wines
White Bright wines ranging from dry to sweet
Sweet Juicy, sweet palate-pleasers in red, white, and rosé
Carolina Sampler Similar to NC beer sampler, a little bit of everything
