You don't have to look far and wide to enjoy all kinds of good food and drink –– the fourth annual Three Eagles Beer Festival will bring all of that to Center Street in May. The festival will take place May 5 at Cornerstone Commons at 200 S. Cen- ter St. in Goldsboro. Sponsored by the Three Eagles Rotary Club, the festival is a fundraising effort to support local non-profit organizations and the Rotary International group. The annual festival typically features around 40 craft beers from North Caro- lina and regional breweries, with many different styles and tastes available for guests to try. When beer-tasting participants check in, they will have to present their ID to make sure they are of legal drinking age. From there, they will be given a special signature 4-ounce glass for beer tasting, and then begin moving between brewery stations to taste and learn about the different kinds of beers avail- able. Representatives from the breweries will pour 2 ounces of each beer into your glass for you, and literature from the breweries will be provid- ed to describe the beers and breweries. Tom Bradshaw, chairman of the beer festival, said that the event will feature breweries from at home and afar. "We try to get mostly breweries in this region, the Carolinas," he said. "We do get some from out of state, and they're great." This year's beer festival will feature country bluegrass musician Donna Hughes, a singer, songwriter, guitarist, pianist and animal rights activist. Brewmasters of Goldsboro and What's the Dilla will provide food from food trucks. For airmen at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base, the Three Eagles Beer Festival will include a shuttle service to allow participants who live on base to get back home safely and legally. "The shuttle will start picking up at Heritage Hall around 12:30, and it will take them to the festival and bring them home," Bradshaw said. "We actually coordinated this with Seymour John- son leadership, and they may be providing a shut- tle of their own, so there will be at least one shuttle, maybe two." The festival is a major fundraiser for the Three Eagles Rotary, which Three Eagles fly in You won't have to go too far to taste beers from around the region — the Three Eagles Beer Festival will land on Center Street May 5 and offer up a wide array of tasting options, entertainment and a chance to give back to the community.
