Pisgah Brewing Company is hosting their end-of-season celebration for the Pisgah Brewing Outdoor Stage the last weekend of September, which will jointly benefit and celebrate 25 years of stellar local radio from the North Carolina media gem that is 88.7 WNCW. Pisgah and WNCW will also trade help hand-in-hand with Funding America Through Entertainment (FATE) as well as Habitat For Humanity for this special occasion. The free community event will take place on Saturday, Sept. 27 and will feature a headlining set on the Outdoor Stage from local new-grass pioneers Acoustic Syndicate. Other acts for the event will include a special set from guitar virtuoso Shane Pruitt Band and Friends, as well as an opening set from the Pisgah Brewing house band, Phuncle Sam. The event is set to be an all day celebration with the gates opening at 4pm and music starting at 5pm.

WNCW has long been a treasure of the Western North Carolina community with their unwavering support of local and regional artists as well as musical traditions of the Southern states. Known nationally, WNCW is proud to celebrate 25 years of supporting the musicians craft and regional culture. As a non-profit themselves, WNCW is committed to the enhancement of community and plans to exemplify this notion with the inclusion of FATE and Habitat For Humanity. The event plans to help raise funds throughout the day in conjunction with WNCW to support each participating non-profits daily operations. The event has already planned a silent auction with stellar items, a raffle with many prizes in the form of music and live concert tickets, as well as other fundraising opportunities for the crowd to give back to those who give daily.

Acoustic Syndicate makes their first stop to the Pisgah Brewing Outdoor Stage since their 20th Anniversary celebration in 2012, just as Pisgah Brewing prepares to embark upon their 10-year Anniversary in 2015, making this a fitting combination of local entities who are celebrating multiple decades of dedication to their community.
