The Big Frosty 

When: Sat., Jan. 21, 2 p.m. 2017
Price: $35

So far, this winter has bounced from extremely cold to unusually warm. But winter brews kill the blues. No matter the temperature, adventurous drinkers are bound to find something to love at Raleigh Beer Garden's Big Frosty Beer Festival. The event promises a total of fifteen breweries (including one cidery) offering rare and specialty brews. These include tastes from Oak City stalwarts like Big Boss, Lonerider, and Trophy, as well as western N.C. favorites Wicked Weed, Appalachian Mountain Brewery, and Bold Rock Cider. Our favorite flavors from the greater Triangle region include Durham's Durty Bull, Cary's Bond Brothers, Wake Forest's White Street, Apex's Brüeprint, and Clayton's Deep River. The price of admission includes a mug for sampling. Andy Lyle Hall will soundtrack the affair with a selection of live cover tunes, while the beer garden's upscale comfort food menu leaves no excuse for drinking on an empty stomach. —Bryan C. Reed
