The event, held at the West End Public in downtown Chapel Hill, raised over $8,500 through ticket sales and raffles to support PORCH, a volunteer organization providing hunger relief to families in the Chapel Hill/Carrboro area.
The event was expanded from one session last year to two this year in order to accomodate more tasters and to raise more money. Still, the event completely sold out in advance.

This was a pale ale made with Citra hops and gruit, a term for a mixture of herbs that was used for flavoring beer before the common use of hops. It had a peachy aroma, cloudy orange color, not much head, and a slight piney taste of hops. There was also something very familiar about this beer, but it took several sips to realize that it tasted like sangria. Sure enough, this beer was aged in wine barrels to give it a very unique flavor.
