The 9th annual Cape Fear Beer Festival returns. Captain Jack is looking for shipmates to celebrate the 9th annual craft beer, wine and spirits tasting festival.
Come in costume or risk walking the plank!
This year the festival will benefit the Wilmington Chamber of Commerce highlighting the organization’s efforts to support the growing craft beverage industry.
This year’s festival will feature 60+ American craft microbreweries, with over 100 beers and various wines.
The event will also feature a DJ, silent auction, giveaways and much more.
Join in the fun as the festival celebrates Wilmington, thanks the Chamber of Commerce and taste the area’s best craft labels.
History: Back in 2010, a local Wilmington resident with a penchant for craft beer decided to put together a beer festival to highlight the many blossoming micro-breweries in Wilmington and the Cape Fear area.
What started as an ambitious idea following a few rounds of local craft beer has evolved into the premier beer festival in Wilmington, going on a decade.
The festival brings together local residents (that are 21 and older) and local craft brewers for a day of fun and entertainment while highlighting the ever-expanding craft brewing culture in the Cape Fear region. With over 100 local and regional beers and wines to taste, it’s the perfect opportunity to indulge yourself in the Cape Fear craft beer brewing and winery culture.
From the beginning, the goal was to bring together the community, giving local brewers a chance to highlight their craft, and local residents a chance to taste a variety of local beers all in one place.
