Lots going on in the beer community today in North Carolina. It’s the five year anniversary of Pop The Cap, which lifted the ban on beer over 6 percent in the state. Foothills Brewing is marking this date in history with the limited bottle release of their Baltic Porter, one of the brewery’s high acclaimed beers. The beer is available at the brewery in Winston-Salem and well as Sam’s Quik Shop in Durham. Later today, Fullsteam will celebrate their grand opening of their tasting room. A private party starts at 4pm followed by the public opening at 6:14 – the average time for beer o-clock in England and the name of their mild beer from their Workers’ Compensation Series of beers which also includes Rocket Science IPA and El Toro Cream Ale.
