Sample a host of beers and help a good cause at Homebrew for Hunger

Posted by on Thu, Oct 16, 2014 at 9:19 AM


Hoist a pint for a good cause at the fourth annual Homebrew for Hunger festival in downtown Carrboro on Sunday, Oct. 19.

It’s the sort of event where everyone wins. Festival-goers learn about and, better yet, taste beer from local home brewers and craft breweries (many of which started out as home brewers). At the same time, proceeds go to help support the hunger-relief organization PORCH, which collects and distributes food to families living in poverty in the Carrboro and Chapel Hill communities.


Homebrew for Hunger 2014 is being held a month earlier than in previous years at a new outdoor venue in front of Fifth Season Gardening. The change allows for a single, larger session to take place. And you will likely need the entire session to fully experience the offerings available. This year’s Homebrew for Hunger features more than 100 beers from 35 local home brewers. They will serve such varieties as Thai Basil Pale Ale, Smoked Pumpkin Porter, Hibiscus Saison, Grapefruit IPA and Mango Red Chili Cream Ale. Area craft brewers taking part include Steel String Brewery, Mystery Brewing, Carolina Brewery, Star Point Brewing and Beer Army Combat Brewery. For a complete list of brewers and beers check out http://homebrewforhunger.com/beer-line-up/.

To help raise additional money for PORCH, Homebrew for Hunger will accept non-perishable food at the door and raffle off prizes from homebrew manufacturers and local businesses. Raffle tickets are available for $1 or festivalgoers can donate one canned food item to receive a free ticket (limit 3 tickets).

Homebrew for Hunger is Sunday, Oct. 19, from 1–5 p.m. at Fifth Season Gardening, 106 S. Greensboro St., Carrboro. Tickets are $25 in advance and available at www.homebrewforhunger.com or at Fifth Season Gardening’s Carrboro or Raleigh locations. Tickets at the door will be $30. Attendees must be 21 or older.
