ASHEVILLE, NC— On Thursday, June 2, the Asheville Tourists will become the Beer City Tourists for one night only when they play host to the Greenville Drive. The game-worn jerseys and caps are currently available for fans to bid on with proceeds benefitting the Asheville Tourists Children’s Fund.

To bid on a game worn Beer City jersey/cap combination, individuals must visit the live auction at www.BeerCityTourists.com. The auction is currently ongoing and will run through the evening of Saturday, June 4.

The Tourists jerseys will display the customized print “BEER CITY” across the chest and their New Era caps will have a pint glass logo with the official Asheville “A” embedded on the pint glass.

The limited edition caps and customized Beer City Tourists T-shirts are currently available for purchase in the Tourists Trap Store at McCormick Field and online at www.TheTouristsTrap.com.

Asheville has been named “Beer City USA” on multiple occasions and was called the “Napa Valley of beer” by National Public Radio. Buncombe County is home to 24 craft breweries, with Western North Carolina having nearly 50. McCormick Field is the home of the Original Thirsty Thursday, with the term first used by the Tourists in 1983 and trademarked with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in 1995 by the team.

The Tourists begin a three-game series at McCormick Field against the Greenville Drive from June 2-June 4. Following the Sunday, June 5 off day, the Tourists entertain the Hagerstown Suns from June 6-June 8.
