NC Brewery Tag-O-Rama

Here's a new take on a state wide game. The tags are predetermined but the order isn't. Currently there are about 125 breweries in NC with new ones opening all the time and the game is to tag them all. Rules are quite similar to most games except for 2 very important rules below.

1. See this map for the list of breweries. This will be the official list of tags but please be aware that new breweries are being added all the time and the map could be updated. If you know of a new brewery that is not on the list but is currently producing beer it will be allowed. Additionally, some breweries maybe have more than one location such as Natty Greene's who have brewpubs in Raleigh & Greensboro as well as a separate production facility in Greensboro. Each location is it's own tag. Both your bike and something identifying the brewery must be visible. Green icon is the current tag, yellow icons are old tags, and red ones are available tags. Blue icons have just been added and represent a brewery that is in the works but is not yet in play. Please don't drop tags at these locations until their icon has been changed from blue to red.

2. Each new drop must be at least 30 miles from the last tag. I can see this being an unpopular rule but feel it is necessary to keep the game moving. In some areas there are high number of tags in a very small area (sometimes literally across the street). Putting a minimum distance requirement will keep the game from turning into several different regional games where everything within 20 miles of Raleigh is grabbed and the locals lose interest. This rule is subject to change if needed, or in rare circumstances exceptions made. ***Initially I was gonna make it 50.
3. No poaching by out of state inmates. My concern here is if this is allowed there is a chance that all the tags in the Western side of the state could get grabbed up too quickly. This rule is subject to change if needed.
4. File tags are allowed for drops only. I encourage you to start collecting file tags on your everyday rides, especially those out of town. With the distance rule you want to make sure you have some handy so you don't have to put in a long ride just to make the next drop.
5. New drops should be made within 24 hours of the grab.
6. He/she whom posts first wins. Period. Smart-tech allowed.
7. No whining.

8. NO drinking and riding!!! Many breweries have tap rooms or restaurants. If you chose to sample something (and I encourage you to do so) please consume no more than one drink per hour and wait about an hour before getting back on the bike. If you do sample something please let us know what you think. An extra benefit if you do stop is they will usually have wifi so you can post your grab. Again, the rule is no drinking and riding, but there is no rule that you have to consume anything as you might not drink, they could be closed, or not offer samples.

Drop 1



I went with the ESB, one of my favorite under represented styles. Classic buscuit malt with a touch of caramel and nuttiness.

Can you make an exception for just one TN resident Tnwineseller?
I think he lives less than 1 mile from North Carolina and likes visiting breweries and this tag game is something he would enjoy.

No way. I'll skip this game.
You guys are still welcome to come play our games though. We actually like to meet riders from other states while out riding

I personally wouldn't exclude anyone, the more the merrier.

Just an FYI that the current tag is located in Mt. Airy. For some reason not every brewery on the map is listed below it. I'm going to play around with recreating the map and hopefully be able to change the color of the pins once the tag has been grabbed.

I've also heard of at least brewery on the map that has zero signage so I'll be looking to delete that one from the list. Please let me know about any other issues or questions as they come up.

Also just a heads up that there is another game's tag just a few miles from this current one.
