Asheville’s first ever Beer Week has started! It takes place from May 24 through June 3, 2012. The eleven days celebrating beer and Beer City, USA, will culminate at Asheville’s third Beer City Festival on June 2.
The mission is to celebrate beer! —to taste many different styles of beer and variations on those styles; to pair beer with a smorgasbord of delicious foods; to learn about and explore beer in all its delectable complexity; and, most of all, to have fun drinking beer in the brewery-centric mountains of Asheville, NC.
The “week” will include seminars, tastings, dinners, and special events with “beer celebrities” from around the country and the world. More than 40 breweries are slated to appear at Beer City Festival already.
The event is organized by a bunch of regional beer industry folks, Asheville Beer Week will offer a variety of events and include as many bars, restaurants and breweries as possible!

It is official! After much speculation and rumors, New Belgium (Fat Tire Amber Ale) is expanding to The River Arts District in Asheville. We can’t wait! More jobs, more fun, and more BEER! Fat Tire is one of the first beers I ever drank and still enjoy! Visit www.newbelgium.com
