State of Origin Craft Brew Fest

We are excited to announce the return of State of Origin Craft Brew Fest on Saturday, August 6th from 5-9pm at the Morganton Courthouse Square.

The 7th annual State of Origin will include 25+  breweries, wineries, distilleries, cideries and kombucha makers from around the country that continuously create liquids with local ingredients. Join us as we come together in the celebration of thoughtful and seasonal fermentation.

A portion of proceeds from State of Origin tickets will once again benefit our dear friends and longstanding partners, Foothills Conservancy of NC. “Foothills Conservancy of North Carolina is a nationally accredited regional land trust that protects the fabric and character of Western North Carolina’s landscape forever and for the benefit of all.”
