Mother Earth Brewing 5 Year Anniversary Party

SATURDAY, OCT. 25 – MOTHER EARTH BREWING 5 YEAR ANNIVERSARY

Celebrate with us ALL DAY LONG on Saturday, October 25th, as Mother Earth Brewing turns FIVE YEARS OLD!

NEUSE RIVER PADDLE

Back in April, we sponsored our first ever Neuse River paddle, a senic canoe and kayak trip down the Neuse River through Kinston to raise money for the Kinston Riverwalk Fund. It was so much fun, we’re doing it again! On the morning of the anniversary party, brewery founders Stephen Hill and Trent Mooring will be guiding a senic, four mile paddle through the heart of Kinston, ending just a few blocks from the brewery. We’ll provide the boats, the equipment, and beers during the paddle; all you need to bring is yourself and a great attitude! You’ll be shuttled from Mother Earth Brewing down to the launch site, and shuttled back to the brewery at the conclusion. You’ll also get to take part in a guided beer tasting at the Mother Earth Tap Room at the conclusion of the tour! The cost to participate is only $25.00, with 100% of the funds raised going to support the Kinston Riverwalk Fund, building over two miles of nature trails along the Neuse River connecting the Kinston Nature Center with the Woodmen Community Center! The paddle will begin at 10am, and conclude around 1pm, just in time for the street festival at Mother Earth Brewing. Space is very limited and will sell out quickly, so contact the brewery today to reserve your spot by calling (252) 208-2437, or emailing [email protected]

LIVE MUSIC

When we opened five years ago, we celebrated with a fantastic set from 90s alternative rockers The Connells, in a show that people have been talking about ever since. So to celebrate this anniversary, we’re bringing The Connells back to Kinston! Formed in Raleigh, NC in 1985, The Connells have released seven full length albums, featuring hits like “74-75,” “Stone Cold Yesterday,” and “Slackjawed.” They’ve toured extensively with acts like Def Leppard and won numerous awards for their 1993 Platinum album “Ring.” We’ll be featuring an afternoon of live music on North St. in front of the brewery headlined by The Connells, with local favorites The Craig Harrison Quartet and J.P. Soars And The Red Hots also playing feature sets. Music starts at 1pm; set times to be announced!

ANNIVERSARY BEERS

We've released some pretty spectacular beers both as wide releases and as special “Tap Room Only” batches in the last five years, so to celebrate, we’ll be bringing back some greatest hits, as well as introducing some new special brews!

THE OFFICIAL AFTER PARTY

We’ll be open late into the evening, but after the Tap Room closes, come hang out with us across the street at our sister bar, The Red Room, for the official after party! Local favorites The Deluge will take the stage at 10pm and The Red Room will be serving up plenty of delicious Mother Earth brews, as well as wine by the glass and local craft spirits.
