The 21st annual World Beer Festival, hosted by All About Beer Magazine, brought more than 200 beers from around the globe to the Durham Bulls Athletic Park. Many Durham breweries were represented, including Fullsteam, Bull City Ciderworks and Ponysaurus, as well as a range of brewers from across the state, such as Mystery Brewing Company of Hillsborough, Wooden Robot of Charlotte, Bhramari of Asheville, and Crank Arm Brewing and Compass Rose Brewery, both of Raleigh.
Armed with a checklist, a map and four hours in the park, each guest made his or her way around the stadium to sample some of the hundreds of beers on tap. Attendees also had their pick of several area food trucks, including American Meltdown, Baguettaboutit and Taco Grande. A make-your-own-beer stand, specialty cask ales, discussions with brewing experts and live music rounded out the evening. Cheers to all who attended and made it a special night!
