craft beerI’ve got some really easy questions for you. Do you like being outside on beautiful days? Do you like delicious food? Are you passionate about craft beer?

Unless you are a hermit, you should have answered “yes” to at least two of those questions.

And if you did, in fact, answer “yes” to at least two of those questions, I’m going to give you a beautiful gift — your ready-made plans for this Saturday afternoon, April 30.

Join us for Hops for Hospice, a fantastic event held out on the patio of Foxcroft Wine Co. on Fairview Road. We’ll be there from 1-4pm with samples of beer from Leffe, Lonerider, Mother Earth Brewing, Mystery Brewing, NoDa Brewing, The Old Mecklenburg Brewery, Sierra Nevada, Starr Hill Brewery, Stella Artois, Sugar Creek Brewing Company, The Unknown Brewing Co, and Triple C Brewing Co. Plus there will be delicious appetizers from the inventive kitchen of Foxcroft Wine Co. And while you’re sipping on beer and noshing on food, you can also make bids for some cool gift baskets in the silent auction.

There really is no better way to enjoy a beautiful spring day in the Carolinas. Unless, of course, you are the aforementioned hermit. And you won’t know what an awesome day you’re missing.

Tickets for Hops for Hospice are $25 in advance and $30 at the door. You can Call 704.365.6550 for more information.

Nothing could be finer than Hops for Hospice

Hops for Hospice_2015Ah, springtime in the Carolinas!  There’s nothing better.  Wait, yes there is. Springtime in the Carolinas with a beer in your hand, surrounded by fun people on a beautiful patio.  And I know exactly where you can find that kind of perfection.

Join us this Saturday (May 16) at Foxcroft Wine Co. in Southpark for Hops for Hospice.  From 1pm until 4, you can taste some fantastic local (and not-so local but still delicious) beers from breweries whose names you probably know.  Names like Terrapin, Bird Song, Grand Teton Brewing, Mother Earth, NoDA, Triple C, and more.  Plus you can nosh on delicacies from Foxcroft Wine Co.’s own Chef Justin who has devised a few appetizers and snacks to nicely complement said beer.  It’s kind of a perfect afternoon, actually, and we are wrapping it up and putting a bow on it and giving it to you like a special gift.

Speaking of gifts, there are going to be some cool gift baskets up for auction (silent auction, that is) so come prepared to bid.

Now, what would you expect to pay for this tastebud-pleasing, sensory-soothing day out on the patio?  Well, this delightful afternoon can be yours for the low, low price of $20.  If you get your wristband before May 16, that is.  On the day of the event, you will have to pay the not-quite-as-low price of $25.  So call Foxcroft Wine Co. (at 704.365.6550) to reserve your wristband before Saturday!  Because $20 is a screaming good deal for a perfect Saturday afternoon in the “nothing could be finer” Carolinas.  Can I get an AMEN?

Foxcroft Wine Co. is located at 7824 Fairview Rd.  For more information about this event, call Nancy Cole, Director of Special Events, at 704.335.4312.  Proceeds from Hops for Hospice benefit Hospice & Palliative Care Charlotte Region.
