The best reward after filing your taxes is using that refund check for some fun. Maybe you’ve planned on going out to a nice dinner, or are putting it towards your summer vacation plans. Whatever your plans are, we think you should celebrate with some craft beer or a regional brewery visit!

Regional brewery tours are pretty inexpensive (Lonerider offers bi-monthly tours at just $1 a person) or even free, and it can be a great way to learn about the beer in your glass. Plus, the cheap cost of the tour leaves you with a nice, healthy budget for buying rounds for you and your friends. And with more than 150 breweries in North Carolina, you won’t run out of options any time soon. You’re likely to also be a stone’s throw away from some great local breweries, especially if you’re here in the Triangle.  You’ll find some exciting new beers, learn more about brewing, and learn about the small beer craft industry. Plus, you’ll get a refreshing beer or two at the end of a tour, which will help you relax through the hot summer days.

For those who want to enjoy your money and save time traveling, you don’t even have to leave your backyard: you can create your own local beer oasis by bringing home some NC craft beer in cans, bottles, growlers, or kegs! Have a tax refund party with your friends and enjoy the summer with that hard earned money!

Our overall advice: treat yourself with those refund dollars and splurge on your favorite craft beers. We know you won’t regret it. To learn more about North Carolina craft beer, contact us, or visit us at The Hideout!
