Charlie Hodge has worked in the bar biz for over 25 years, working all over the country and influenced by so many smart bartenders and chefs. He feels that creating/cooking the ingredients for cocktails help maintain their integrity as well as create a fresh and unique taste. In 2011, he moved to Asheville and in 2014 opened Sovereign Remedies, a cocktail bar with a thriving food program. Sovereign Remedies has been voted best of in the categories of best cocktails and downtown bar three years running. In 2019, the Make Space, a 3000 sq.ft. commissary kitchen was added to the family, setting the table for even more to come.
Over 20 immersive signature events are featured throughout the weekend! Tours, dinners, parties, foraging and more await.
This inspired, friendly and free-spirited food scene tucked in the mountains of Appalachia has been called “Foodtopia,” but the locals just call it home. Plan your trip now.
Access to affordable and healthy food and reducing food waste are important initiatives of the signature event’s charitable giving goals.
