Beer Fest Aims To Create Craft Brew Scene In Eastern Carolina

Whats on tap in Greenville? The first ever Jolly Skull Beer Fest at the Convention Center.

More than 50 breweries from all over the country came to Eastern Carolina to promote quality brews and also raise money to help our troops overseas. Part of the proceeds of the first beer fest in Greenville will go to creating care packages for troops over seas. For folks who decided to come out its a weekend event that organizer Dustin Canstorb says meant to be safe, fun, and educational.

"Some people think beer armys this big drink fest and beer pong but no we don't subscribe to that. We're about responsible drinking, about educating and sophisticating your pallet so to speak a little bit more," said Beer Army Founder Dustin Canestorb.

The event expected about 2,000 poeple Friday and will continue Saturday.
