Due to the COVID-19 crisis, prize delivery may be delayed 4-8 weeks.

Note: Due to COVID-19 impacts on our budget, some of our programs can’t return in 2021. Unfortunately, this includes Beer Trail prizes, which will not return in 2021. You may still submit completed Passports for 2020 prizes early in the year.

Even without prizes, we still encourage you to visit Raleigh area breweries and show support in this challenging time. Our breweries need your support more than ever!

Raleigh Beer Garden

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.)

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!

“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.”
