Our state is home to hundreds of breweries, and North Carolina Beer Month provides beer lovers the chance to honor them. This year, we’re helping Tar Heels celebrate these fun- and foam-filled days by launching the Our State Readers’ Choice Brewery Awards. The Our State team has created a list of finalists from North Carolina’s more than 250 breweries to compete in 20 categories.

Now, we’re counting on you, the readers!

Take the full survey below before April 25. The questions will also be posted individually on our Facebook page throughout the month, so be sure to share them with a friend so they can vote, too. (Or cast additional votes, yourself!) Also, use the hashtags #NCBeerAwards and #BeerNC on social media to let us know which North Carolina breweries you’re supporting this month.

On May 1, we’ll announce the winners for each category on our Facebook page and Be sure to check back then for the results.

Happy North Carolina Beer Month!
