The North Carolina Craft Brewers Guild is the not-for-profit advocacy group for the independent craft brewers of our state. We are “The State of Southern Beer” and rank among the best craft beer states in the nation. North Carolina has over 320 independent craft breweries and brewpubs in every corner of the state, each one serving as a local gathering spot for their towns and cities. From hosting run clubs and yoga classes, to pet adoption events and trivia nights, our breweries have become part of the fabric of your communities.

Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic has dealt the craft beer industry a major blow. With your purchase of a “State of Southern Beer” t-shirt, you can directly help to sustain this vibrant industry. So wear the shirt and show everyone your appreciation for the finest beers in the country, as well as your support for local community breweries.
