The first ever Asheville Beer Week will take place May 24 through June 3, 2012. The eleven days celebrating beer and Beer City, USA, will culminate at Asheville's third Beer City Festival on June 2.
Our mission is to celebrate that nectar known as beer—to taste many different styles of beer and variations on those styles; to pair beer with a smorgasbord of delicious foods; to learn about and explore beer in all its delectable complexity; and, most of all, to have fun drinking beer in the brewery-centric mountains of Asheville, NC.
The "week" will include seminars, tastings, dinners, and special events with “beer celebrities” from around the country and the world. More than 40 breweries are slated to appear at Beer City Festival already.
Organized by a beer-loving bunch of regional beer industry folks, Asheville Beer Week will offer a variety of events and include as many bars, restaurants and breweries as possible.
If you're interested in holding an event, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll send you a sign-up sheet. Event sign-ups are due by February 17, after which time, we'll produce an official Asheville Beer Week calendar.
Whether or not you'd like to participate or attend, please spread the word about Asheville Beer Week.
We're also holding a logo contest. Submissions for the Asheville Beer Week logo also are due by February 17. The winner will receive two tickets to Beer City Fest, two tickets to Brewgrass (Sept. 15), and two tickets to an Iron Man Chef Competition to be held during Asheville Beer Week.
