Kick off the 10th annual Charlotte Craft Beer Week with an inaugural fundraising event sponsored by The Charlotte Independent Brewer’s Alliance (CIBA).

This year they’ll be raising funds for local beer journalist Matt McKenzie of Charlotte Magazine. He was recently diagnosed with a rare form of sinus cancer and with all of his contributions to the beer community, the event will proudly raise funds for the cause.

Over 20 Charlotte area breweries and cideries have come together to create one-off and limited release brews specifically for this event. Most of the brews/ciders will be unavailable outside of this event.

Tickets to the event are $10 and will include a raffle ticket and a beer ticket. After your entry ticket (including a beer and raffle ticket), beer tickets will be $5 and raffle tickets will also be $5. There will be live music from Four Flat Tires from 6-9 p.m.
