Perfect timing: Asheville Winter Warmer Beerfest

The third annual Asheville Winter Warmer Beer Festival is slated for Saturday, Jan. 23 from 3-7 p.m. and (unlike it’s summery Brewgrass counterpart) is held indoors, namely: The Haywood Park Hotel’s Grand Ballroom.

The event is put on by local brewery tour experts Asheville Brews Cruise, along with ThreeSheets:Design, French Broad Brewing Company and the Haywood Park Hotel. Bands (to be announced) will perform, a portion of the proceeds raised from the festival go to support River Link and there will be snacks from a local caterer. But what’s really important here is the beer (the better to fill your souvenir mug).

Local brewing participants include: French Broad Brewing Co., Highland Brewing Co., Green Man Ales, Pisgah Brewing Co., Asheville Pizza & Brewing Co., Heinzelmannchen Brewery, Appalachian Craft, Wedge and Craggie.

From the Piedmont & Durham area: Catawba Valley Brewing Co., Foothills, Duck-Rabbit, Triangle and Big Boss. From Nashville: Yazoo. From Atlanta:

Tickets run $37 per person and can be purchased online here. Event organizers say the festival will sell out, so buy your tickets early.
