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’s 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!

Then again, Asheville’s craft beer scene is so fecund – the city is home to over 100 breweries and brewpubs and was named “Beer City USA” four years in a row – it’s no wonder that the NC Brewgrass Festival had such an early start here.
