Tickets for Asheville’s annual Beer City Festival go on sale Thursday. From the Beer City Festival page on FB:
Festival tickets are going on-sale THIS Thursday. They’ll be available at local Asheville Brewers Alliance breweries, Barley’s Taproom & Pizzeria, and Bruisin’ Ales! Beer City Festival 2012 is on Sat., June 2nd! Line-up details to come…
Tickets cost $40 each and just to reiterate – tickets are not available online. You’ve got to get ’em at a local brewery, or Barley’s, Bruisin’, or the Thirsty Monk.
The music line-up has yet to be announced, but I’m sure it will be great.
The Beer City Festival will be the big bash to end the first ever Asheville Beer Week, actually a 13-day run of events celebrating Asheville’s beer culture. Here’s more on Asheville Beer Week:
The first ever Asheville Beer Week will take place May 24 through June 3, 2012. The 10 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.
