5 Things Worth Knowing About North Carolina

We all know that North Carolina is the best state around…but I bet there are some things you did not know about our wonderful state!  First of all, North Carolina is the one and only state in the nation with its very own toast.  Now that deserves, well, a toast!  Originally written as a poem in 1904 and adopted by the General Assembly in 1957 as our state toast; it is both patriotic and descriptive of our love for our fine state!   I’ll drink to that!


Here’s to the land of the long leaf pine,
The summer land where the sun doth shine,
Where the weak grow strong and the strong grow great,
Here’s to “Down Home,” the Old North State!

Here’s to the land of the cotton bloom white,
Where the scuppernong perfumes the breeze at night,
Where the soft southern moss and jessamine mate,
‘Neath the murmuring pines of the Old North State!

Here’s to the land where the galax grows,
Where the rhododendron’s rosette glows,
Where soars Mount Mitchell’s summit great,
In the “Land of the Sky,” in the Old North State!

Here’s to the land where maidens* are fair,
Where friends are true and cold hearts rare,
The near land, the dear land, whatever fate,
The blest land, the best land, the Old North State!

Although we were quick to adopt a toast, NC was the last of the original 13 states to have a state motto.  But, in 1893, the Latin words “Esse Quam Videri” became our state’s official motto.  Translated to English it means, “To be rather than to seem” and nothing is lost in translation there!  In a state full of genuine, hard working people with Southern values, there couldn’t be a more fitting motto.

Many people are aware that North Carolina’s state bird is the beautiful red feathered cardinal and it has been since 1943.  What many don’t know is this fun fact; for a brief period, our state bird was actually the Chickadee!  But the Chickadee only held that title for 3 days because of its unfortunate nickname, the Tomtit!  Legislators were afraid North Carolina would become known as the “Tomtit State”…slightly less dignified than the “Tar heel State”.

Although not the state’s first flag, the current North Carolina state flag has been left almost unchanged in the last 125 years!  In 1885 General Johnston Jones proposed to the General Assembly to adopt a new version of the state flag.  Most of us are familiar

Tap into the Brewery Scene in Wilmington, North Carolina

Craft beer is here (and in abundance) in Wilmington North Carolina.  Our great town now has 14 breweries — learn a little more about our favorites here:

Front Street Brewery, Downtown Wilmington - The OG, as many might call it, Front Street brewery has been in a staple in Wilmington for many years. Their classic brews include a Coastal Kolsch, Dram Tree Scottish Ale, Port City IPA and everyone loves Tiny Tim’s Porter when the season rolls around.

Wilmington Brewing Company, Midtown Wilmington - This homegrown favorite was started by Wilmington locals, John and Michelle Savard, and you can taste the love, sweat and tears put into each beer and the warm welcoming atmosphere. Don’t make it to Midtown often, you can find their beers on tap around town and local restaurants and bars…just ask bar tenders for Wilmington Brewing Company’s well-known favorite, Tropical Lightning!

Fly Trap Brewery, North 4th Street Arts District, Wilmington – This is the “sister” brewery to Wilmington Brewing Company – John Savard’s sister, Emily, married to Mike Barlas, own Fly Trap Brewing and their goal is to create a community-center brewery with a focus on American and Belgium ales.  Stop in and enjoy one of their well-balanced, full-flavored Pints for Purpose where a percentage of the proceeds are placed back in the community.

Good Hops, Carolina Beach – At Good Hops, they combine tasty craft beers and a love for disc golf.  Enjoy a beer before playing the course or celebrate after your round at the tap room.  Either way, Good Hops is a win-win in our books.

Wrightsville Beach Brewery, guess where?!  Well it’s not quite on Wrightsville Beach, but it’s right on the way there!  This hot spot has a slew of great beers, delish bites and weekly events for the community to get involved in – stop by on Thursdays for the Farmer’s Market and live music or swing in on Sundays for Yoga at the Brewery.

The Sour Barn, Ogden Area – This is Broomtail’s sister location where they age their sour beers.  If your taste buds are up for a pucker, try their Galloping Gose.  While at the Sour Barn, learn a bit more about what make a beer a sour.  Not really interested in the sour side of things, you can find Broomtail’s other craft beers on tap as well.
