“At Miller Brewing Company, we put quality above all else. We’re proud of the care that goes into the production of all of our beers and have been brewing great-tasting beers with the highest-quality ingredients since 1855. From the purity of the water we use to the highest-quality hops and malted barley, our brewmasters go to great lengths to ensure the quality and consistency of our beers. They use a very special brewing process to give Miller Lite more taste at only 96 calories per 12 oz.”

“It seems simple. Water. Yeast. Grains. Hops. That’s all it takes to make beer. But what we do with those simple ingredients within these walls is what makes us special.” Foothills began brewing beer March 2005, with three 15-barrel fermenters. The company has recently opened a new 48,000 square foot warehouse, also in Winston-Salem. Today both brewery locations continue to produce top-quality beers.
Some of the Foothills beers you can expect at RW9: Hoppyum IPA, Hop Job Session IPA (seasonal), Torch Pilsner, Hop of the Month, Jade IPA, People’s Porter and Craft Happy Keg.

“We don’t brew beer for the masses. Instead, our beers are crafted for a chosen few, a small cadre of renegades and rebels who enjoy a beer that pushes the limits of what is commonly accepted as taste. In short, we make beer for people like us.”
Some of the Founders Brewing Co. beers you can expect at RW9: All Day IPA, KBS barrel aged stout, PC Pils, Rubaeus, and Sumatra Mountain Brown.
If you have a VIP ticket, be sure to attend the “Founders’ Free Pours at 4” in the VIP Hospitality Area on Friday during the Sanctum Sully set.

From our earliest days of striving to make consistently good beer, and instead making beer that ranged from vile, to barely drinkable, to wonderful, to elegant, to questionable-at-best. From being castigated by our West Marin neighbors to finally suffering an ‘eviction’ by our West Marin septic system. From landing in the welcoming arms of Petaluma, and actually getting our beer into bottles, onto the streets, and into the hands of sympathetic beer geeks, to steadily losing less money each month. From all this and more, Lagunitas Brewing Company is emerging as a battle-tested brewery capable of making great beer out of goat’s milk, brambles, and asphalt on the surface of the Moon, if need be.
Some of the Lagunitas beers you can expect at RW9: IPA, PILS, Lucky 13, Aunt Sally Sour Mash Ale and Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’.
If you have a VIP ticket, be sure to attend the “Lagunits’ Free Pours at 4” in the VIP Hospitality Area on Saturday during The Trongone Band‘s set.
Lagunitas Special Tapping: Born Again Yesterday keg Sunday, 2pm, at the Lake Stage during Erin & The Wildfire‘s set. (While supplies last.)
“Branch Out! Our cider makers have been experimenting with apple varieties and unique styles to develop hard cider recipes for 20 years. At Angry Orchard, we’ll do anything to make great cider. So when we heard a rumor that yelling at apples makes them grow better, we said, “let’s do that.” Then we set up speakers in our orchard.”
Our approach to cidermaking is straightforward. Experiment; learn by doing, reading, and engaging with the beer, cider, and winemaking communities; use local apples, products and services; love the place we live; support the charities and people that support our community; keep it fresh; keep it funky. We take cidermaking seriously, we don’t take ourselves seriously. Based in Free Union, Virginia, just outside of Charlottesville, we are in the heart of apple country at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. All of our ciders start with locally-grown fruit, cultivated with care and harvested at peak flavor from nearby orchards and family farms.
Our superb grapes are harvested from world-class appellations, including California’s storied wine country and the acclaimed vineyards of Argentina and Chile. Through a meticulous, traditional winemaking process, Black Box Wines are crafted to be food-friendly and fruit-forward – all without the expense and fuss of bottled wines. So whether you crave sumptuous reds or crisp whites, you’ll delight in the quality and value inside every box.
