CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA – Charlotte’s Creative Loafing will host its first annual craft beer and burger festival April 11, 2015.
The Moo & Brew Craft Beer and Burger Festival will take place on the festival grounds of the NC Music Factory, home to the annual Charlotte Oktoberfest beer festival. Moo & Brew will offer samplings from 40 breweries, as well as tastes from local restaurants vying for the title of “Creative Loafing’s Best Burger.” Renowned California-based Stone Brewing Co. will be the key beer sponsor.
“As the Queen City's news, arts and entertainment paper of record, Creative Loafing has championed Charlotte's craft beer scene since it first started bubbling,” notes Amy Mularski, Creative Loafing’s sales manager. “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 with this inaugural festival.”
There will be a VIP session (12:30 p.m.-2 p.m.) that will feature special releases and beers from each brewery, with a General Admission open tasting session to follow (2 p.m.-6 p.m.). Only 500 VIPs will be sold which also includes burger tastings ($65) and GA ($45).
