Free stamp from the Raleigh Beer Garden
Downtown's Raleigh Beer Garden—the Guinness World Record holder for the largest draft beer selection under one roof—is sponsoring the Raleigh Beer Trail this year.
And with that, they've given you a FREE, automatic stamp on the 2020 Passport! (So you just need to visit four breweries/get four stamps for your first prize.)
Not required, but recommended: Start your Beer Trail experience at the Raleigh Beer Garden. Give some Raleigh area beers a try and decide what breweries you want to visit!
Raleigh Beer Trail T-shirt artwork by local artist and musician George Hage
We wanted to do something special for the 2020 T-shirt.
So we worked with our local friend George Hage, who's done work with J. Cole's Dreamville Festival, International Bluegrass Music Association's World of Bluegrass and more events, plus whose T-shirts have been rocked by guitarist Chris Shifflet (Foo Fighters) and drummer Fred Eltringham, who played drums on Willie Nelson's 2020 Grammy Award-winning song "Ride Me Back Home"—just to name a few highlights
We love what he created for us, and we hope you do, too!
