North Carolina based Graybeard Distillery, maker of award-winning rice-based Bedlam Vodka, has teamed with media industry leader iHeartMedia to establish the Bedlam Vodka Sound Stages at iHeartRadio’s 96.9 The Kat, Channel 96.1 and 1065 The End studio in Charlotte, N.C. and G105, 95x and B93.9’s studio in Raleigh.
Private venues reserved for exclusive artist performances, VIP concert series and invite-only sessions by emerging names in music, the Bedlam Vodka Sound Stage will host its first act August 14 at iHeartRadio’s studio in Raleigh when international recording sensation Jorge Blanco takes the stage in a concert for contest winners and guests of G105.
“Partnering with iHeartMedia to develop the Bedlam Vodka Sound Stages is an amazing opportunity to promote our passion for music, which is a constant throughout our distilling process,” a spokesperson for the distillery says. “This chance to bring artists to the Triangle and Charlotte areas enables us to share that passion for music and the iHeartRadio local affiliate stations allowing contest winners the opportunity to attend aligns with our brand’s inclusive nature.”
A bit of news from the Northwest Cider Association…

For the second year running, a cidery from Montana, Western Cider Company, took home the competition’s highest honor and Cup– the Best In Show Award.
The party, hosted at Portland Cider Company’s Clackamas event space, drew 150 cidermakers and cider fans, celebrated ciders crafted in the Pacific Northwest, the largest cider market in the US for consumption and home to quarter of the country’s cidermakers.
