  • NC Beer Month is April 2016

    Three micro-breweries in the small, western NC mountain village of Sylva are offering big events all April long to celebrate North Carolina Beer Month.


    Heinzelmännchen Brewery, which crafts top-fermenting German altbier, has long been the town's craft beer hot spot. Innovation Brewing adds an experimental quality with its twists on traditional styles and popular on site food truck.  Sneak E Squirrel Brewery is the latest addition to the brewery scene, offering a variety of beers and full service restaurant. 

    While each brewery is offering specials and events throughout April in celebration of North Carolina Beer Month, below are a few events that locals and visitors shouldn't miss:

    Evolution is hosting a Beer/Cheese Pairing with Sierra Nevada at Evolution Wine Kitchen on Wednesday, April 13 at 6 p.m.  Tickets are $20 and include a selection of artisan cheeses expertly paired with a variety of Sierra Nevada Beers.  A Sierra Nevada expert will be conducting the pairing.  Tickets will be on sale at www.EvolutionWineKitchen.com or in the store closer to the event.

    The Sylva Tap Hop will be held  Saturday, April 9 at 5 p.m., involving Innovation Brewing, Heinzelmannchen Brewery, City Lights Café and Evolution Wine Kitchen.  Tickets are $25 and include a souvenir Sylva tap glass, two 6 oz. pours at each location, a chance to win prizes with our hop challenge, and ending with a music concert at Bridge Park Pavilion in downtown Sylva.

    Heinzelmannchen will hold an Anniversary Celebration on Thursday, April 21 from 4-9 p.m. There will be food, beer and soda, plus the release of Kirsch Bock - a malty Spring Ale kissed with Cherries.

    The Sneak E Squirrel IPA Mondays will be held each Monday of the month. Sneak E Squirrel will be bringing out a new IPA to celebrate the diversity of the style. Also enjoy food pairings during this month long celebration of NC Beer Month, including Pork Belly BLT served on flatbread with custom made aioli sauce with a Belgian Wit beer.
