Road trip to Duck-Rabbit!

Posted by Pop The Cap on November 29th, 2006

This from the good folks at The Duck-Rabbit Craft Brewery in Farmville:

“The Duck-Rabbit Barley Wine is on the way!

You are invited to our Holiday Open House/Barley Wine Pre-Release Party. Come check out the brewery, enjoy some munchies and seize the opportunity for that first taste of The Duck-Rabbit’s next seasonal specialty. Our American Barley Wine is big and hoppy, and weighs in at 11% abv. We think you’ll like it as much as we do.

I stole a map from the Duck-Rabbit web site.

Natty Greene’s amazes PTC with $2,000 donation

Posted by Pop The Cap on November 21st, 2006

Last Wednesday was our most successful PTC(v2) function yet, with over $2,000 raised to support awareness of North Carolina and independent breweries. Hosts Chris Lester and Kayne Fisher of Natty Greene’s in Greensboro brought in a crowd of over 50 people — this good audience combined with some amazing auction items resulted in a not-to-miss evening for the Triad. Hey, I even saw the news media there!

Pop The Cap is incredibly grateful to the entire staff of Natty Greenes: Chris, Kayne, Drew, Trevor, Chris D. and our servers, Heather and Jody. I personally had a great time…my only regret is that I didn’t take more pictures!

#2 GABF dinner was great!

Posted by Pop The Cap on November 9th, 2006

Yep indeed, we had a wonderful time at last night’s GABF beer dinner, hosted by the Carolina Brewery. The brewery, as you may recall, won gold for their English-style IPA. Pop The Cap gathered the other NC winning beers for this event, and then let the Carolina Brewery take care of the rest.

The food was great, the auction items were excellent, and the company was superb. Oh, and the beers kicked booty. Many thanks to Robert, Jon, Thomas and Matt of the Carolina Brewery for putting this event together.
