Race to Taste

A Self-Guided Tasting Tour of Cabarrus County

The area’s craft beverage scene is booming, and you’re invited to sample homegrown brews, meet the locals, and learn the stories behind the hops, mash, and grapes.

Introducing #RaceToTaste — a self-guided tasting tour of Cabarrus County, NC. Instead of a standard brochure or map that could end up soggy, the #RaceToTaste coaster set is a functional list of local spots to sip, complete with all the details you need to plan, navigate and share your visit.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Pick up your free coaster set at the Visitor Center (10099 Weddington Rd., Suite 102, Concord, NC 28027).
  2. Use the individual coasters to plan your visits. Each coaster is printed with a short history, contact information, location, and social media handles so you can get a quick preview.
  3. Snap photos at each stop and share on social media using #RaceToTaste.

Here is the full list of participating locations in Race To Taste:
