Beer lovers can support local efforts to build and maintain parks and greenways as well as score some free beer by volunteering at Highland Brewing Co.’s  Ale Share Fest on Saturday, July 26. The inaugural festival, which runs 1-6 p.m., will feature live music and more than 20 breweries serving samples.

A total of 120 volunteers are needed, with shifts running 11:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. and 3-7 p.m. Volunteers will be able to sample the festival’s beers at no cost following their shift.

Volunteers will be pouring beer, so they must be age 21 or older. A mandatory orientation and training will be held at 6 p.m. Wednesday, July 16, at Highland Brewing Co. Those who cannot attend the training will not be allowed to volunteer at the event.

One-hundred percent of ticket-sale net proceeds will be donated to the Asheville Parks and Greenway Foundation, a nonprofit organization that supports local parks, recreation, cultural arts and transportation greenways.

To volunteer, send your name, contact information, email address and age to info@parksgreenways.org. Also, indicate your availability to attend the training on July 16.

Highland Brewing Co. is at 12 Old Charlotte Highway.
