Race to Taste

A Self-Guided Tasting Tour of Cabarrus County, North Carolina

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. Instead of a standard brochure or map that could end up soggy, the Race to Taste coaster set is a fun and 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 has 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.


Participating locations include:

  • Cabarrus Brewing Company
  • Commoners Brewing Company
  • High Branch Brewing Co.
  • Twenty-Six Acres Brewing Company
  • Red Hill Brewing Company
  • Lil’ Robert’s Place
  • Cougar Run Winery
  • Douglas Vineyards
  • Rocky River Vineyards
  • Cabo Winery
  • Dover Vineyards
  • Southern Grace Distilleries at Mount Pleasant Prison

If you don’t make it to every stop, don’t worry! The coaster set is yours to keep, so hang on to your new drinking buddy and make plans to come back soon.
