A new innovation in the world of beer festivals is coming to Burlington, NC with the Company Shops Co-Hops Beer Festival on September 22, 2012. Featuring only North Carolina Breweries, the Co-Hops Festival allows attendees to sample the exceptional craft brews, but tasters also get to bring beer home. This “Mix-a-Six” festival allows each attendee to take home a six-pack of beer chosen from their favorites breweries of the afternoon.
The event will take place on Saturday, September 22, 2012, from 2-5 pm under a tent outside the Company Shops Market Co-Op at 268 E. Front St. in downtown Burlington. At the door, ticketed patrons will receive a tasting glass and an empty six-pack carrier. They will be able to sample freely under the tent and then select six bottles to carry out with them. Company Shops is selling 300 tickets to this event, and the cost will be $25. Patrons will experience the amazing quality and range of NC brewed beers, and a portion of each ticket will also go directly to the NC Brewer’s Guild to help them to continue to support NC breweries. Tickets are now available at Company Shops Market and online via etix.
