Craft beer makers team up to encourage visitors to return to Wilmington

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - The Cape Fear Craft Beer Alliance teamed up to encourage visitors to come to Wilmington to support the economy in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence.

The brewers created a video highlighting how the community is coming back strong after the storm.

The message is that Wilmington and its breweries are open for business.

“It’s true, Wilmington did take a devastating hit from Hurricane Florence, but we’re a tough community and with the strength and perseverance of our our city, we’ve bounced back, So come have a beer with us. Wilmington has 17 really awesome breweries,” encouraged the announcer in the video.

Several of the breweries are donating portions of sales of certain brews to charities supporting rebuilding efforts in our region.
