Family Friendly Beer Festival to feature craft beers, train rides with specialty beers, food trucks, family games and the music of Darrell Harwood

 

SPENCER — Brew and Choo on Saturday is a family friendly craft beer festival at the N.C. Transportation Museum in Spencer, sponsored by the N.C. Transportation Museum Foundation, part of the Rowan County Convention and Visitor Bureau Arts & Ag series of events.

Brew & Choo features eleven craft breweries, food trucks with selections to suit any taste, family fun games, and craft brews made just for this event, only available aboard the train ride.
As part of the train ride ticket, passengers will receive sample tastings of these two specialty brews. Seaboard Brewing Company, from Matthews, will serve up the “Silver Meteor,” an IPA. Commoners Brewing Co. will serve “Spike Driver’s Delight,” a delicious cream-style ale.

 

The festival includes craft beers, food trucks, bounce houses, a balloon artist, and family -friendly games.

 

Admission plus the on-site train ride is offered in two seating classes. Coach seating, which includes a souvenir tasting glass, salty snack, and craft brew samples is $12 for those 21+ and $10 for those under 21, who will receive Cheerwine in a logo cup instead of the beer samples. Table seating, including a souvenir tasting glass and light appetizers is $15 for ages 21+ and $13 for those under 21, with cheerwine served in a souvenir logo cup.

Admission only tickets are $5 for ages 21+ and free for those under 21, and include access to the brewery tents to purchase craft beers, food trucks, bounce houses, a balloon artist, and other family games that are available.

 

In addition to craft brews, food trucks, and game activities, Brew & Choo will feature a live performance by Darrell Harwood, Rowan County’s hometown country music icon. Harwood will perform from 5-9 p.m. His performance is included with admission only tickets.
