Roth Brewing Wing Fest

Roth Brewing Company, one of the North Carolina’s newest and smallest nano-breweries, is hosting their 2nd annual Wingfest on September 24th at 12:00 pm.

The festival will feature tons of wings from several of the areas best wing-makers.  Roth will also be releasing their Forgotten Hollow Cinnamon Porter!

The cost is only $5 and you get a free glass from the event.  You will be able to eat as many wings as you can handle and help judge which wings are the best wings in Raleigh.

Additionally, there will be a competition among all amateur wing-makers and the winner will be named the best home-wings in Raleigh.  You can email Roth at jamesweber@rothbrewing.com if you would like to enter the home-wing competition or want more details.

AND THAT’S NOT ALL! There will also be live music by Joe Doster beginning at 7pm, and as always, there will be cornhole outside.

Sure, this is not technically a homebrew related event, but the guys at Roth are home brewers and let’s be honest, every brewer loves wings! Also, I know that Roth has an unofficial policy that if you bring them some home brew, they will trade you pint for pint.  Not sure if that still applies to these special batches though.
