Throughout Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, Carolina Brewery raised awareness and funds in support of Susan G. Komen®’s North Carolina Triangle to the Coast division by transforming its popular “Sky Blue Golden Ale” into “Sky Pink Golden Ale.” Carolina Brewery hosted events throughout the month to benefit Komen NCTC, including an Oktoberfest 5k run. Sky Pink cans were available in limited-edition six-packs with pink can tops, courtesy of PakTech®, at restaurants and retail locations throughout North Carolina and South Carolina.
