Durham 150 Birthday Brews

Posted by Discover Durham Staff on Mar 28, 2019 4:48:46 PM

How perfect?!

National Beer Day is April 7, which coincides nicely with North Carolina Beer Month every April... except that this year, we're also celebrating Durham's birthday. The fact that Durham has been around for 150 years was more than enough inspiration for a six local breweries to create libations specifically for this momentous occasion.

Cheers to bubbles, brews, and a momentous birthday.

The story of Durham is as unique as the people who live here — and it encompasses every stratum of our community. We’re where women make up the majority of city council and where our first Latina councilwoman was sworn in last year. It’s where Pauli Murray, a queer woman of color, became an author, lawyer, educator, poet, priest, and coauthor of Ruth Bader Ginsberg’s key legal brief in the 1971 case Reed vs. Reed. Durham is also where, in 2017, women made more money than men, on average. This year, Durham ranked in the top 10 in the U.S. and number one in the state for pay in technology field. Women lift up women here — and we’ve been doing it for a long, long time.
