There’s plenty to be celebrated in Beer City USA, and Asheville certainly rolls out the red carpet for its favorite brews. From the musically inclined Brewgrass Festival, to the specialty-focused Best Firkin Beer Festival, the parties are as unique as the breweries themselves.
Festivals are a great way to introduce yourself to a variety of beers and to pick out that one ale, lager, stout or porter that will keep you coming back for another pour. And Asheville isn’t afraid to share the love—festivals welcome regional brewers from across North Carolina and the Southeast.
Showcasing more than 120 different beers from 40+ regional breweries as well as national and regional bluegrass musicians, it’s no wonder that this festival has become a local favorite.
Brush up on your keg-rolling skills for this fest, which transforms downtown streets into a traditional German party featuring tastings from local breweries. Live “oompah” music and local foods complete this fall tradition.
