'Speedway All-American Craft Brewer's Tour' Kicks Off at Charlotte Motor Speedway During 10 Days of NASCAR Thunder, Visits Speedway Motorsports Facilities Nationwide
The craft brew craze is coming to Charlotte Motor Speedway - and Speedway Motorsports, Inc. properties across the country - with a one-of-a-kind mobile mega-experience of regionally-sourced suds as the Speedway All-American Craft Brewers' Tour kicks off during the 10 Days of NASCAR Thunder next month.
The Speedway All-American Craft Brewers' Tour will feature the Beer Haven mobile festival, a first-of-its-kind, self-pour beer sampling station billed as the world's largest mobile bar and brewery. During the 10 Days of NASCAR Thunder, Beer Haven will serve more than 50 tasty craft beers from Charlotte-regional craft breweries during both the NASCAR Sprint All-Star and Coca-Cola 600 race weekends.
In addition to the giant tap room on wheels, Beer Haven features the Bucking Mule Brewery, a real, working mobile brewery with a five-barrel brewing capacity and canning system mounted to a 53-foot-long tractor trailer. Beer lovers will have the opportunity to learn the brewing and canning process from start to finish by brew masters from America's favorite breweries.
The Speedway All-American Craft Brewers' Tour will also include bar games like Beer Pong, life-sized Jenga and corn hole, and will make stops at Speedway Motorsports, Inc. facilities throughout 2015. The schedule follows:
May 16, 23 and 24 Charlotte Motor Speedway
