Carolina in the Fall audience at night

August 3, 2015

Carolina in the Fall™ presented by Wilkes Communications, Inc. is pleased to announce the line-up of Craft Breweries and Wineries that will be featured during this year’s festival. With the goal of celebrating Western North Carolina culture, these beverage companies represent some of the best regional brewers and vintners.

Craft Brewers include Skull Camp Brewing of Elkin, NC, Lost Province Brewing of Boone, NC and Granite Falls Brewing of Granite Falls, NC. Featured Wineries include Jones Von Drehle of Thurmond, NC, Rag Apple Lassie of Boonville, NC, Brushy Mountain Winery of Elkin, NC and Shull Camp Winery of Elkin, NC.

Additionally, some of Wilkes County’s Distillers will be on hand to tell their stories of moonshining. Wilkes, known as the moonshine capital of the world is now home to three distilleries that continue the rich heritage of the past. Call Family Distillers and Copper Barrel Distillery bring the traditions of the past to Carolina in the Fall™ Festival.

NASCAR finds its’ roots in the foothills of North Carolina as fast cars and revenuers raced around the roads of Wilkes County. These chases paved the way for the chase that we watch on television each Sunday throughout the year. Some of the old moonshiner’s cars will be on display during the festival.
