Guess what? It's time for a beer-cation! Asheville, North Carolina is the place to be for a craft beer extravaganza like no other. In a celebration of all things beer, the 3rd Annual Asheville Beer Week begins Friday, May 23 and continues through Saturday, May 31. The 5th Annual Beer City Festival tops off Beer Week on Saturday at Roger McGuire Green located in Asheville's Pack Square Park.
The two festivities overflow with beer-centric events, activities and specials. Here's what you can find on tap.
3rd Annual Asheville Beer Week Events
Beer Week offers more than we can cover in this blog. Each day offers numerous events including tastings, flight nights, release parties, beer pairing dinners, tap takeovers, beer runs and so much more. You'll also find a homebrew festival, reggae day party, a can vs. draft blind taste test, a film festival, a beer & bbq bash, a carnival showcase, a trolley crawl, and the list goes on and on.
Asheville's craft breweries, local restaurants and area businesses go all out. There is a full list of Asheville Beer Week events, dates, locations and times, so be sure to see what's happening each and every day of the week. That way, you can make the most of your beer-cation.
Beer City Festival 2014
So many brews, so little time. Dozens of local and regional breweries are slated to gather on Roger McGuire Green in Pack Square Park for the 5th Annual Beer City Festival on Saturday, May 31. There is also a fabulous lineup of live entertainment including The Jamar Woods Acoustic Band, The Resolvers, and Flow Tribe.
Ticket sales are ongoing and continue through May 30. Online tickets are $50; tickets can be purchased locally for $45. Don't delay, the Beer City Festival tends to sell out quickly.
Finding Local Asheville Accommodations
Asheville offers a nice selection of vacation rentals whether you're coming to town with your significant other or gathering up a group of family or friends. Downtown Asheville vacation rentals offer the luxury of a vacation, the comforts of home and a close, convenient location to all of the downtown action.
What's even better, if you stay three nights in Asheville before May 31, you get an additional night free-of-charge. It's perfect timing!
