Carolina Brewing Company has just released it’s Spring Bock – a pale golden lager weighing in at 6.5%. Clean and crisp, it pairs beautifully with warm weather. This is CBC’s 17th year making Spring Bock and it is available in kegs and bottles at your favorite bar, grocery store and bottle shop.

CBC has many tasting events coming up including: Tastings at Sam Quik Shop and Bottle Shop in Durham, a tap takeover lasting all weekend at Archibalds Tavern in Holly Springs, a pint night at Lou Reda’s in Rocky Mount featuring their Barrel Aged Imperial Stout, and a beer dinner at 42nd St Oyster Bar in Raleigh.  Check out their News and Events page for more info.

HUGE NEWS – CBC is getting a taproom! Approved by the town, construction is expected to begin in April 2015. It will be located where the current tasting bar is, so there will be a lot going on, but they don’t anticipate it interrupting business or tours.  Expected opening is in June – stay tuned for more details!

CBC will debut their West Coast Style IPA next month – perfect time for NC Beer Month, are we right!? It will be a small batch so don’t miss you chance to try it!

Springtime at Taylor’s

With springtime right around the corner, it’s time to get out there and enjoy some NC Craft Beer! Wake Forest’s White Street Brewing is now bottling and Taylor’s Wine Shop has three of their beers in stock. Perfect timing, right?

First up is the Kolsch – Pours an old-gold with a fine, white head. A subtle fruitiness aroma extends to the palate with hints of pear and melon. Crisp and refreshing. Gold medal winner at 2014 World Beer Cup.

Second is the Scottish Ale – Pouring a deep mahogany, it produces a tight tan head that gives way to a complex maltiness. Herbal and spicy notes play nicely in a caramel essence to produce a beautifully sessionable brew.

Saving the best for last is the Hoptimist IPA – This glass-half-full IPA has notes of pungent citrus and earthy resins with an uplifting malt balance. 7.5% ABV, 65 IBUs
