The Nantahala Brewing Company in Bryson City is hosting its first Nanta Claus party and benefit Dec. 17.
The event will begin at 6 p.m. and will feature several Christmas brews. All attendees are asked to bring an unwrapped, unused toy to be donated to children in Swain County who would otherwise not have a Christmas this year.
The Nantahala brewers have concocted Christmas brews, which will be tapped at 7 p.m.
The event will also include a “Worst Holiday Sweater” contest. The judging will commence at 8 p.m., and the winner will receive a growler of one of the Nanta Claus brews, and a $50 gift certificate for Nantahala Brewing Company.
