Nearly 400 of you voted in our final four brew-off, and we had a great time sharing those 4 phenomenal beers. Korey Sullivan finished as the brew-off champion, with his No Bollocks Brown Ale. Props to 2015 Carolina Quarterly Brew Off Champion Korey and the other 3 competitors as well… those were some tasty brews!
Korey will get to help brew his beer on Raleigh Brewing Company's 20 BBL brewhouse, and the beer will be for sale in RBC's taproom, and at bars and restaurants around the area coming soon in 2016. He takes home a cool $500 as well! And, his winning beer will be served throughout the Spring and Summer at the Raleigh Little Theater’s production of Beertown.
