Blowing Rock brews up fun with Walkabout April 26
April marks the second annual N.C. Beer Month, featuring dozens
of breweries across the state.
In Blowing Rock, there will be plenty to experience throughout the month, including indulgence-worthy dining, lively bars, singular shops and eclectic galleries, beer pairings, tasting flights and more.
The featured Beer Month event in Blowing Rock will be the Blowing Rock Walkabout on Saturday, April 26, from 1 to 4:30 p.m.
Travel + Leisure’s “Daily Transporter” e-newsletter recently highlighted N.C. Beer Month, noting, “North Carolina has more craft breweries than any state east of Texas and south of Pennsylvania, according to 2012 figures from the Brewers Association.”
The Blowing Rock Walkabout will feature regional breweries and local businesses in a festive, community-driven atmosphere. All participating businesses are within a few blocks of each other, so visitors can enjoy the ambiance of Blowing Rock’s picturesque downtown.
The Walkabout list of those participating businesses and shops is extensive, and events include brewery tours, cookouts, N.C. beer samples and music. Discounts will be offered in many locations, and detailed Walkabout maps will guide visitors.
