Small Bites: Foodwire

Feast for FEAST

On Saturday, July 14, join Slow Food Asheville for beer and barbecue-studded fun at Highland Brewing Company from 4 until 8 p.m. The event is a fundraiser for Slow Food's FEAST program, an effort geared toward empowering school-age children to make healthy eating decisions through free cooking classes. 

Enjoy Highland’s famous brews, plus plenty of ‘cue (both meaty and meat-free) from local restaurants such as WALK, Rosetta's Kitchen, Southern Fryz, Sunny Point Café, The Junction, Okie Dokie's Smokehouse and Westville Pub. All of the fixings will be donated, too. Expect goodies from Short Street Cakes, Westend Bakery and more.

After stuffing yourself, groove to live music from the Galen Kipar Project or try your hand at soaking folks in the local “celebrity” dunking booth. Angle for various door and raffle prizes including tickets to a Navitat Canopy Tour, the Asheville Food and Wine Festival, or two tickets to “Sweet” (a tasting of desserts, champagne, and spirits before the AFWF). Tickets grant you automatic entry for the door-prize drawing. Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door and also include plenty of food and a Highland brew of your choice.

Highland Brewery is located at 12 Old Charlotte Highway. Purchase your tickets at For more information about Slow Food, visit
