Bring on the Brew—Asheville Celebrates Beer All This Week

The premiere of Asheville Beer Week is in full swing and continues on through the rest of the the week with festivities occurring throughout the local breweries and eateries of downtown Asheville.

Beer Week offers unique events including a scavenger hunt, brews cruise, and pub-crawl in addition to an array of tastings, food pairings, as well as rare and new releases of some of the area's best brews. The week is filled to the brim with beer-related adventures in and around town, we suggest you view the complete list of events so you can plan your time and preferred destinations.

The Beer Week celebration, events, and activities lead up to the Beer City Festival occurring on Saturday, June 2 from noon to 6p.m. at downtown Asheville's Roger McGuire Park. It's not too late to find accommodations conveniently located in downtown Asheville and purchase tickets to the Beer City Festival available at local breweries, Barley's Taproom and Bruisin' Ales.

Take advantage of the chance to hop on over and enjoy a showcase of some of the area's best brews all in one beautiful location. With over 30 breweries on the brewery line-up and some rockin' music slated on the band line-up, it's well worth the visit.

Are you craving a local brew served in an ice-cold mug but just don't think you can get here this week? That's okay! Asheville topped the BeerCity USA poll again this year (this is the fourth consecutive time) for good reason. Asheville's beer culture started in 1994 with the Highland Brewery Company pioneering the way and since then other burgeoning breweries have come on to the scene making it the popular craft-brewing destination that it has become today. Any time of the year is an opportune time to experience the latest and greatest on Asheville's brewery scene.

Do you have a favorite brew from the Asheville area? Tell us about it in our comment section. Cheers!
