The taps flowed this afternoon at Asheville’s BeerCity festival, which took place at the new Roger McGuire Green at Pack Square Park from noon to 6 p.m.
The event was attended by a sold-out crowd of about 2,800 happy imbibers. Here’s the news as it streamed out of the park, via Twitter and other means, thanks to an assortment of intrepid, selfless journalists and citizen reporters — who enjoyed the festival’s perks amidst their hardship duty.
