The Three Eagles Beer Festival, sponsored by the Goldsboro – Three Eagles Rotary Club, a non-profit civic club, is having its fourth annual fund-raising event to raise money for local non-profit organizations and to support Rotary International in its efforts to promote world peace and understanding. Local non-profits and charities supported have included: Boys and Girls Clubs of Wayne County, HGDC Community Crisis Center, Arts Council of Wayne County, Wayne County Chamber of Commerce, Downtown Goldsboro Development Corporation, Wayne Opportunity Center, the Family Y, Hurricane Matthew Relief, and many others. On the international level, funds are used to support Rotary’s efforts to eradicate polio, train future peacemakers, supports clean water, and strengthens local economies.
The Three Eagles Beer Festival features craft beers from North Carolina and regional breweries. The beer fest typically provides approximately forty (40) different beers of varying styles for participant tasting.
Participants purchase tickets both on-line through an arrangement with the Paramount Theater and from Three Eagles Rotary Club members. Locally, Well Travelled Beer, Goldsboro Brew Works, and Brew Master promote the beer fest and sell tickets. Tickets may also be purchased at the event. At check-in, beer-tasting participants have their IDs checked to ensure they meet the appropriate legal alcohol consumption age; a beer-tasting wristband is issued to verify the participant meets the age requirement, and a signature 4-ounce glass for beer tasting is issued. Designated Drivers may purchased a $5, no-alcohol ticket at the gate. Children are welcome. Participants then move from brewery station to station tasting and learning about the various beers. Representative from the breweries or staff from the distributors pour 2 ounces in each glass for tasting. Literature from the breweries is provided describing the beers and the breweries.
The 2018 beer festival will feature Donna Hughes, an Americana country bluegrass singer, songwriter, guitarist, pianist, and animal rights activist. She has released several albums on Rounder Records and one of her songs has been recorded by Alison Krauss. http://donnahughes.com/home/
Brew Master, a Goldsboro bottle store and restaurant, will provide food at this year’s event.
The Three Eagles Beer Festival will also have shuttle services available for local transportation, specifically for those participants who reside at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base to encourage safe and legal participation by the airmen, to whom we owe our deepest respect and gratitude for their service to our country.
Overall, the participants are well-behaved individuals who have an interest in the variety of beers available for tasting. Consumption is generally well controlled by the participants. Beer festivals have become exceedingly popular across the United States as the craft beer market has grown exponentially in the last decade.
The Three Eagles Rotary Club is pleased and excited to bring the fourth annual beer festival to Goldsboro.
