Beers & Brewers
Are there six different beers in this variety pack?

That’s correct. There are two of each different beer style included in the package for 12 total beers. Each of the six beers was created by us and a team of regional partners for an incredible collection of beer flavors and styles.

How did you pick the collaboration partners?

We love working with brewers we admire, and there are so many great brewers, so it was tough to pick just a few. We looked at the country as a whole and divided it into six regions. We chose one “captain” to represent each region, and that captain selected the rest of the co-collaborators. We have a great mix of breweries, from small nano-sized operations and brewpubs, all the way up to major regional players and historic brewers.

We may not be able to brew with everyone, but we do want them to be a part of this celebration, which is why we’re also hosting a beer festival tour and inviting every single one of them to pour their beer at a festival. Write a letter to your favorite brewery and encourage them to sign up to be part of the travelling beer festival extravaganza!

Gather the best brewing minds together in a room and you’ll certainly come up with some incredible new beer ideas, which is exactly what we did. Last fall we invited all of our partner brewers to our brewery in Mills River and let the great ideas flow. Some regions wanted to showcase ingredients from their backyards (read: hops!) and others wanted to highlight some historic traditions. The result is six unique beer styles, each representing a theme or highlighting ingredients.

Who came up with the names?

The names reflect the beer styles we created with our Beer Camp Across America collaboration teams. From the pun-inspired Moxee-Moron (a “session Imperial IPA”—a style contradiction) to the Sweet Sunny South’s take on the table beer, these brews are packed with taste and tales.

Who benefits from the sales of this 12-pack?

The answer is twofold:

  1. We’ll donate a portion of 12-pack sales to hop and barley research, so you’ll help support new hop varieties and barley crops. With innovative, healthy raw ingredients, craft brewers can continue to whip up exciting aromas and flavors.
  2. Additionally, each team chose a nonprofit ...

One thing we stress across the board: PLEASE DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE! If you overindulge, leave your car and come back for it the next day. Take a taxi; we’ll make sure there are plenty on hand and you'll make some new friends while keeping yourself and everyone else safe.

Another option: RIDE YOUR BIKE! We’ll have plentiful bike parking at each festival. We don't advocate drinking and riding your bike, though.
