Last week we had the pleasure of meeting with Draft Magazine’s Trevor Cravens and Sam Porter of Porter House Productions. The two are teaming up to create a unique experience for the senses with an innovative festival/feastival they’re calling BrewKamp. The event will be held November 4th-6th at Lake Eden near Black Mountain, NC and profits will go towards Pints for Prostates, an NC based non-profit that raises awareness among men about the importance of regular men’s health screenings through the language of beer.

BrewKamp focuses on three themes: Taste,  Listen and Camp.



Craft brew is the focus, but cider and wine tastings will also be available. Kampers can participate in custom brewery-led experiences, enjoy extremely rare and small batch beers in the barn, or belly-up and order from a mobile bar which will wind its way through the event. Beer and food pairings from guest chefs compliment more dramatic offerings like paella from a giant 6-foot pan, or the Bar-B-Que pit which will be hosted in micro dining villages.



Girl Talk, Robert Randolph and the Family Band, Tribute to Doc Watson, Joe Hertler and the Rainbow Seekers, That 1 Guy, Simplified, Apple Seed Collective and many other artists (funk, rock, bluegrass, Americana, marching bands, New Orleans, gospel, DJs) will play continuously across the venue’s seven unique stages, ranging from a large-scale fully covered stage to intimate bonfire and barn stages. Kampers can also dance the night away at the Silent Disco tent, with live music and 1500 wireless headsets.



BrewKamp is a three day festival with multiple ways to camp. Ticket options include primitive camping, car camping, bring your RV or reserve a 5-star tent for two with a “Glamping” package.  They’ll have bathrooms and showers on site. Kampers can also take everything in while relaxing in a wood-fired hot tub alongside Lake Eden.

Tickets for BrewKamp range in price from $65 day passes for Friday or Saturday and $25 for Sunday. Weekend passes are $125, or $175 if you want to include basic camping. Additional camping options are priced as add-ons. On-site food and drink is cash only but don’t worry, there will be an ATM available.
