Attend Asheville’s 20th Annual Brewgrass Festival

August 15th, 2016 by Corey A. Edwards

Asheville's 20th annual Brewgrass Festival 2016It’s been 20 years since Asheville hosted the first Brewgrass Festival – and it doesn’t look like they plan to stop any time soon. Come celebrate the festival’s 20th anniversary with great music and delicious craft beers. Saturday, September 17th, 2016!

Asheville’s Brewgrass Festival, founded in 1996, is Western North Carolina‚Äôs original craft beer festival. A lot has changed since those early days. Not only has the number of microbreweries in the US more than quadrupled since then, Brewgrass has grown, too!

North Carolina is now home to over 100 breweries and brewpubs. No wonder Brewgrass 2016 is set to include over 55 different breweries and cideries! You’ll see – and taste! – a diverse assortment of local, regional, and national craft beers and ciders.

Not just about the brews, Brewgrass has also always incorporated music and 2016 is no exception. Headliners for this year are the
Travelin’ McCourys with special guest Peter Rowan. Peter Rowan will play his own set, too, along with sets by the Jon Stickley Trio and Bobby Miller and the Virginia Daredevils.
