The craft beer scene is particularly strong in North Carolina and the Division of Tourism recognizes this fact by declaring April as NC Beer Month. Hickory Hops! beer and music festival in Hickory on April 22nd is one of the highlights of the month for craft beer enthusiasts and initiates alike.
The festival lasts five hours, beginning at 1:00pm, and features hundreds of beers, live music and access to lots of brewerania sold by the breweries. The site is within easy walking distance of several restaurants, many unique retail shops, banks and more. Both street and lot parking is available. Please remember to plan responsibly and bring a designated driver or be prepared to call a cab if necessary.
