North Carolina Inns Help Visitors Enjoy “Beer Month”

With more than 75 breweries and more than any other state between Pennsylvania and Texas, it is easy to see why North Carolina calls itself the “place for beer lovers.” Regional beer culture, including festivals, beer weeks and other events, culminates with the state’s beer month: April 2013. The month of festivities is presented as a joint effort between the North Carolina Division of Tourism and the North Carolina Brewers Guild.

Of course, Select Registry’s member inns located in North Carolina are more than happy to help guests enjoy beer month to the fullest extent. On the North Carolina Beer Month website, the events and festivities are organized into 20 cities and regions. To help make planning your visit easier, we have organized Select Registry’s member inns into 9 of the 20 cities and regions.


Named “Beer City USA” for four straight years, Ashville is a must-see during Beer Month. To make exploring “Beer City USA” easy, safe and comfortable, check out the Brews Cruise. The Cruise tours nine breweries, includes plenty of samples, and explains how Asheville became such a beer-friendly city.
