The Frontier | 800 Park Offices Drive, RTP Apr 16 5:00 pm - Apr 16 8:00 pm

The number of Carolinian libations has taken off over the past few years, so our team decided it was time to devote an entire RTP 180 to the topic. (Not to mention that it's NC Beer Month!) We've rounded up brewers, distillers and experts on the topic to lead you through their stories of how they got to be in this rapidly expanding industry. So, come with high spirits and enjoy an evening with us at The Frontier!

Tasty brews and food, will be present - of course!

Innovation. Education. Industry. These are powerful angles – and what the Research Triangle Park is known for. At “RTP 180°,” speakers from our three founding universities, local companies and the community at-large are called upon to take the stage to speak passionately about what matters to them. The show kicks off at 6pm, but our doors are open beforehand for anyone that would like to come early.

The hashtag for this event is #RTP180 and we always livestream from our YouTube channel over at Afterwards, professionally edited video segments of our speakers will be posted, in case you missed the livestream!

Tickets are free and all 300 seats are usually claimed, so register early!



If you can't make it to the event, we'll post a livestream from RTP 180 | Libations of NC so you won't miss a beat. You can also join in the Twitter conversation by using #RTP180 or tweeting @theRTP.
