Local brewery to make appearance at Our State Public House in Raleigh

Bright Penny Brewing, shown here during its opening weekend this past May, is one of the featured beers that will be on display at the Our State Public House at the North Carolina State Fair. Bright Penny’s Porter Batch 1, created under the guidance of Head Brewer Scott Schenk, is one of a select handful of craft brews from across the state of North Carolina that will be represented in Raleigh at the Our State Public House.

Heading to the N.C. State Fair this October? Bright Penny Brewing will be featured in the returning Our State Public House. Back for a third year, the Our State Public House will allow patrons to try a number of delicious North Carolina craft beverages including the Bright Penny Brewing Porter Batch 1.

Beer, wine, cider, mead, and craft soda will only be available for on-site consumption in the Our State Public House in Heritage Circle. Sponsored by Our State Magazine, the Public House will showcase a variety of craft beverage producers from across North Carolina. Each day will have a featured beverage, which will be shared via the Our State Public House Facebook page.

“Bright Penny Brewing is excited to introduce our beer to thousands of people who might not have had the chance to visit us yet in Mebane,” said Head Brewer Scott Schenk. “We hope you’ll find your favorite new North Carolina craft beverage at the Fair this year and come visit us next time you are in the area.”

Patrons of the Our State Public House seeking to enjoy alcoholic beverages will be able to choose from North Carolina wine, beer, cider, or mead. Ten dollars gets you two tickets which will be redeemable for either a 3 ounce pour of wine or mead or an 8 ounce pour of beer or cider. There is a limit of two tickets per person. New this year - the Our State Public House will have a family friendly space available with seating and the opportunity to purchase non-alcoholic craft sodas. Bright Penny Brewing will be served at the Our State Public House from Opening Day on October 17th through October 22nd.

This venture is made possible by the NC Department of Agriculture, the NC Craft Brewers Guild and Our State Magazine. The Guild will use a portion of the proceeds for research and marketing benefiting North Carolina’s craft beer industry. North Carolina is home to over 310 craft breweries and 200+ wineries.
