Four Breweries of the Month at Mellow WS

Winston-Salem’s Mellow Mushroom is having four breweries of the month on tap for October, all from Michigan, and the taps include standouts such as Founder’s Breakfast Stout and New Holland’s Dragon Milk! They’ll also be having special tappings throughout the month, as well as some Michigan beers ran through the Randall.

Good to see that there’s no hard feelings towards Michigan after Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo both beat out Asheville for the title of “Beer City USA” this year.

October On Tap Breweries at Mellow Mushroom

Welcome to the NEW NC Triad Beer!

Craft BeerWelcome to the new NC Triad Beer website! I’m Aaron, and I took over @nctriadbeer about 3 months ago from Acey and Mike when they moved to Charlotte. Some of you may have met me or seen my posts on Twitter and Facebook, and some of you I’ve met out and about the bars and breweries of the Triad. I’ve had a great time promoting awareness of the craft beer scene in the Triad- a scene that I think is growing by leaps and bounds. From new breweries planning to open soon (Small Batch Beer Co., Hoots Roller Bar, and Pig Pounder Brewery) to new bottle shops (Stella Brew) to great new events being put on for the first time (High Point’s HopFest), there’s been a bunch of news and events to keep you up-to-date on!

With that in mind, I hope that this site can become a “beer hub” for the Triad, connecting you to the venues, events and beers you’re interested in. The Events Calendar section will be replacing the “daily roundups” I have been posting to the NC Triad Beer Facebook page, and will allow you to see not only the daily specials around the Triad but upcoming events as well. It’ll also be freeing up a good chunk of my time to focus on other ways to promote the local beer scene!

Finally, there could be no NC Triad Beer without a strong community behind it, so I need your help. Keep sending me information on upcoming beer events and news, talk to your local bar, brewery or bottle shop and encourage them to use the #triadbeer hashtag when tweeting about their upcoming beer events (you have no idea how much easier it makes it to track!), and most of importantly of all – keep drinking good beer!
