It’s time to tap into all that is great about North Carolina’s craft beer scene. Use Untappd, the popular “drink socially” smartphone app, to unlock the NC Beer Month badge when you visit one of our breweries or order a local beer at a bar or restaurant. And new this year, you can gain entries into the NC Beer Sweepstakes as you visit beer locations across the state. You’ll have the chance to win one of four amazing beer-themed getaways – to Asheville, Brevard, Durham or the Outer Banks – and you can earn up to three entries into the sweepstakes by participating in Untappd. You’ll receive notifications, i.e. Untappd badges, as you reach the number of locations required for the additional tiers (5, 10 and 15 check-ins).
Many of you know that North Carolina beer tastes amazing, but a lot of people first notice what’s on the outside: the design of the can. To pay tribute to the beautiful work put in by our breweries, we’ve gathered 16 local beers with amazing can labels. Nominations came from fans and brewers for the inaugural bracket challenge we’re calling “#CannedMadness.” Each week in April, a.k.a. NC Beer Month, we’ll have a new round of the tournament, which will consist of head-to-head Twitter polls. The first week (April 2-6) will feature eight matchups: two per day Monday-Thursday, with results on Friday. We’ll do four quarterfinal matchups the second week, and so on until we crown a champion at the end of the month. Follow @NCBeerMonth on Twitter and vote for your favorite North Carolina beer can design.
