Asheville Brewgrass Festival 2015

September 1st, 2015 by Corey A. Edwards

NC Brewgrass Festival 2015Western NC’s original craft beer festival is back for its 19th year – Brewgrass Festival 2015 is scheduled for Saturday, September 19th, will you be there?

Asheville’s Brewgrass Festival was started way back in 1996 when we were all still calling craft beer and craft brewers “microbrew” and “microbrewers.” Now the craze for fresh, innovative, flavorful beer has swept nearly every corner of the US and abroad, making the movement seem more macro than micro and the initiation of the now 19 year-old Brewgrass Festival an act of wisdom bordering on prescience.
