Raleigh Beer Garden sponsorRaleigh Beer Trail 2022

Visit Raleigh, N.C., area breweries.
Get rewards.

From Wake Forest to Raleigh to Holly Springs and Fuquay-Varina, the Raleigh area's 30+ breweries have barstools waiting just for you and your friends. If you like giving a variety of breweries a try, the Raleigh Beer Trail is designed for you. Check in at breweries (or one of their offsite brewery taprooms and/or restaurants) you visit in the Raleigh area and earn prizes. The more you visit, the more prizes you'll earn.
 



Here's how it works:

Download the Passport and print, or get one at our Visitor Information Center. (Latest version updated Feb. 2022. To view the printable Passport, you'll need the free Adobe Acrobat Reader.)

Get up to 15 stamps (free!) on your Passport at Raleigh area breweries. Note: Only one stamp per brewery or one of their offsite taproom(s) and/or restaurant(s) accepted.

Once you have enough stamps on your Passport, sign your Passport and email a clear photo to beertrail@visitRaleigh.com, along with your mailing address. We'll send your prize(s)!

Raleigh Beer Garden

Free stamp from the Raleigh Beer Garden

Downtown's Raleigh Beer Garden—with one of the world's largest draft beer selections—is sponsoring the Raleigh Beer Trail this year.

And with that, they've given you a FREE, automatically stamped spot on the 2022 Passport! (So you really 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 2022 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!

More than 10 years ago, Sumit Vohra quit his day job and started doing what he was passionate about: crafting high-quality, great tasting ales. Today, Lonerider Brewing Company is hailed as one of the country's best beer-makers.

“We have a West Texas-themed brewery in Raleigh, making a German-style Hefeweizen, run by a guy from India. I think that explains the diversity of what Raleigh is about.”
