Brewgaloo 2018

Brewgaloo is North Carolina’s largest craft beer festival- with an attendance of over 30,000. The annual event is produced by your very own, Shop Local Raleigh, in an effort to support the North Carolina craft beer industry, foster entrepreneurship, and grow our local economy.

Showcased at Brewgaloo are over 50 local food trucks, 45 local vendors and local bands with the constant reminder to Show Some Local Love™. The event, now in its 7th Anniversary, has a proven track record of creating positive economic impact in North Carolina. In just eight hours, the event purchases over $140,000 of North Carolina craft beer while food trucks and vendors collectively are selling over $800,000 worth of product and local businesses in downtown Raleigh have produced positive revenue increases every year the event has been held.
