Founded in 1996, Brewgrass Festival is Asheville, NC’s original craft beer festival. North Carolina is home to over 100 breweries and brewpubs, and since those early days, Western North Carolina has formed a burgeoning beer scene – even reigning as “Beer City USA” four years in a row. Brewgrass Festival’s annual event has showcases some of the most in-demand and exciting brewers in the region.

Great American Country (GAC) recently identified Brewgrass Festival as one of “America’s Best Craft Beer Festivals. They went on to say “Asheville is known for doing two things very well: bluegrass and craft pints. The Brewgrass Festival brings those two things together for one of the premiere brewery festivals on the East Coast.” Read the full article here: GAC – Brewgrass Festival.

Brewgrass is proud to donate a portion of all proceeds to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Western North Carolina, a United Way agency. The organization serves young people in Western North Carolina in over nine counties, matching children (ages 6-14) from single-parent families with caring, adult mentors.
