Beer Festival season is upon us in WNC. This weekend, the 7th annual High Country Beer Fest takes place at the High Country Fairgrounds in Boone, NC. Enjoy a full afternoon of sampling craft beers, craft food, and music, in the high country of Eastern, Western North Carolina. The High Country Beer Festival is unique in that it also offers scheduled seminars for festival attendees that cover all aspects of beer tasting, brewing, and food pairing.
The High Country Beer Festival is a 100% non-profit event to benefit the ASU Fermentation Sciences program (which is win/win, ’cause it just goes back into training and educating more people to make great #NCBeer). In addition to supporting the the ASU Fermentation Sciences, festival proceeds also go to support other local non-profit organizations, such as High Country Local First, High Country Mommies, Blue Ridge Conservancy-Middle Fork Greenway Association, The Mountain Alliance, and Ivory Tower, Inc.
If you’re looking for a great Labor Day Weekend event with great beer and great music, this may be the one for you. There are over 45 brewers scheduled to attend, with tickets available online at just $40.
