Drinking good craft beer and supporting local businesses are two of our favorite things. If they're yours too, Brewgaloo is not to be missed. Brewgaloo is the largest local craft beer festival in NC, presented by Shop Local Raleigh and featuring over 40 NC breweries—now that's a lot of tasty brew! A ticket gets you a souvenir pint glass, but you can also pick up goods from local vendors, listen to live bands and grab a bite to eat from a ton of food trucks.
The shenanigans run for two days. On Friday night, 6–10p, there'll be a smaller-scale, kickoff tasting event for $45 a piece. On Saturday, the party runs 2–10p and is open to all, with beer sold by the sample (2 tickets) or pint (5 tickets)—no entry fee required! (But drink ticket bundles are for sale for $25.)
