NC Beer Month is back this year, its third annual celebration, and highlighting the craft beer industry in the state. Johnston County is not immune to the evolutionary trend of craft beer brewing; there are two locally owned and operated breweries right here in our backyard and they are gearing up for NC Beer Month. But, it's not just the breweries themselves getting ready to celebrate beer. Bottle shops, bars, and restaurants all over the county are joining in on the fun too!
If you haven't already tried Double Barley Brewing or Deep River Brewing then run, don't walk, to their amazing facilities, complete with tasting rooms, in Smithfield and Clayton respectively. In honor of NC Beer Month both breweries are planning not only specially brewed beers just for the occasion but also a full schedule of events, beer dinners, release parties and tap takeovers at area restaurants and bars.
