We will also be raising money for the North Carolina Brewers Guild. The NCBG is a not-for-profit 501(c)6 tax exempt organization comprised of brewers, vendors, retailers, and craft beer enthusiasts focused on promoting North Carolina beer. North Carolina boasts the largest number of craft breweries in the American South, with more than 20 brewpubs and 20 packaging breweries. Its main objective is to promote NC beer — local, fresh, craft beer. They want to support the beer communities in the state and guide the craft beer aficionados by providing the one source that allows access to the breweries, brewers and their beers where ever they are served, presented, celebrated.
