Inside The Issue: July
Posted: Tuesday, Jun. 18, 2013
Rachel discovered her love of food at a young age - cooking with her mother and finding joy in preparing food for others. Rachel worked in restaurant public relations in New York City before moving to Charlotte in September 2011. These days she's nurturing her own passion for local fare as Charlotte's food culture grows.
The vibrancy and ongoing growth of the craft beer industry in Charlotte is apparent. From bottle shops and beer crawls to a new brewery popping up in every neighborhood, we are lucky enough to not only be saturated with high quality beer, but a high quality group of people leading that charge.So, inside this issue, we decided to show you a different side of six beer-brazen men who are leading the (six) pack and I was on-tap for some behind-the-scenes fun. The photo shoots took us to Rural Hill, NoDa, South End and back againeach location a different personality and each personality a different outfit from local shops. If only just for the day, our SouthPark stylists helped these boys amp up their stylerocking summer cardigans and colorful bowties to breezy blazers and tailored suits, Chris, Kurt, Chad, Jason, Jeff and Mark were all treated like models and each definitely proved to look like one. From helping Kurt try to keep his big smile at bay for a more serious photo at Heist, to making a cameo in one of NODA Brewings ever-popular viral videos with Chad, you can see the full spread featuring these dapper gentlemen in our July issue, on stands today.
