Screen shot 2013-12-17 at 3.13.20 PMLeave a comment on this blog post to be entered to win. I’ll pick a winner at random later on this week (or early next week). It’s gonna be a great party. (You can get a hotel room for $69 and stay the night at the Brevard Holiday Inn or Hampton Inn so you don’t have to drive.)

Press release:

To celebrate a fuh-CAN RAD year of production at their one-year-old North Carolina brewery, Oskar Blues will throw a second wild and wonderful New Year’s Eve Hootenanny.

Americana country rock band The Hackensaw Boys, known for their rowdy, highly energetic live shows, will headline the night. Opener, bluegrassy Packway Handle Band, will serve up their dark and passionate folk aesthetic.

The party will again be held at Oskar Blues Brewery at 342 Mountain Industrial Dr., starting at 7 p.m. and going until the last beer drops and it’s 2014! Tickets are $25 per person and are for sale here: Eventbrite.

Because of the expansion of the brewery into the warehouse (adding five new 200 bbl fermentation tanks in November for a total of 27 tanks), this year’s Hootenanny will take place on the patio (walled in for the event). Thus, fewer tickets will be sold this year than were for the sold out 2012 Grand Opening, so get your tickets SOON.

Food trucks, special brews, and other goodies will be on hand.

Tickets must be purchased, printed out and brought to the event that night with ID. Kids 16 to 21 years old are OK with a ticket AND a responsible adult.

Proceeds from the night will benefit Oskar Blues CAN’d AID Foundation, a non-profit started in September to help victims of the ColoRADo floods. CAN’d AID is expanding its support to a variety of organizations and folks in need in our home communities and beyond.

Oskar Blues Brewery experienced 40 percent growth in 2013, thanks in part to the East Coast expansion. In October, the brewery hit the 100,000 barrel mark for the year, with 40,000 of those barrels brewed in North Carolina and distributed to 16 East Coast states. More than 9.2 million CANs have gone out the door of the NC brewery in 10 months of distribution.
