Queen City Brewers Festival Scheduled for January

Charlotte, NC — The fourth annual Queen City Brewers Festival (QCBF) will take place Saturday, Jan. 31, 2015 at the legendary Bojangles’ Coliseum. QCBF is a tasting event that showcases Charlotte’s breweries, brewpubs, bottle shops and craft beer-focused restaurants. Funds raised by the event benefit ACEing Autism. QCBF will be the first beer festival held at Bojangles’ Coliseum, which opened in 1955 as Charlotte’s first coliseum.ÔÇ¿ÔÇ¿

“The Charlotte beer landscape has soared since the inaugural festival in 2012,” said QCBF creator and Program Director of ACEing Autism-Charlotte, Nils Weldy. “We needed to find a venue that would properly host our award-winning breweries, exhibitors and sponsors, while maintaining an intimate festival experience.”

Roughly 2,000 attendees will enjoy unlimited beer and food samples on the same floor that has seen performances by Elvis Presley and The Rolling Stones, and was once home to the American Basketball Association’s (ABA’s) Carolina Cougars and the Charlotte Checkers.

Brewers are encouraged to bring one “super” flavor or style of beer especially for QCBF, as the Super Bowl takes place the following day. Works by local artists and live music will be on hand during each of the two tasting sessions: 1-4 p.m. and 6-9 p.m.

QCBF’s mission is to spotlight Charlotte’s craft beer industry while raising awareness and funds for ACEing Autism, a non-profit which uses the sport of tennis to connect with children on the autism spectrum.

Tickets go on sale Saturday, December 6, 2014. Updates will be posted regularly on: ÔÇ¿www.QCBrewFest.comÔÇ¿www.ACEingAutism.comÔÇ¿www.facebook.com/qcbrewfestÔÇ¿
