The 2nd Annual Asheville Beer Week is happening May 25 through June 1, 2013—eight full days of celebrating all things beer in Asheville, North Carolina. The week of events will include tastings, dinners, beer education, keynote speakers, and other beer-related fun (and nonsense). Asheville Beer Week culminates with Asheville’s 4th Annual Beer City Festival on June 1, where dozens of breweries (and plenty of live music) are slated to appear on Roger McGuire Green.
What is Asheville Beer Week?
Asheville Beer Week is an annual event celebrating a vital (and delicious) business (and pleasure) sector in WNC—craft beer! Supported by main sponsor, Asheville Brewers Alliance, ABW is organized by an all-volunteer committee of regional beer industry people.
What events are happening?
- Calendar: The Calendar of Events will be updated as events are scheduled. You don’t need to purchase anything to participate in ABW events, unless ticket sales are indicated by the event host.
- Mobile Apps: For your convenience, we also have mobile apps for iPhone and Android.

What if I’m coming from out of town?
If you’re coming from out of town, Explore Asheville will have plenty of information to plan your trip. Try one of the downtown hotels to walk to ABW events. There are also many taxi options. We ask that you participate responsibility, and please, do not drink and drive.
How can my local business sponsor or host an event?
There are five tier levels of corporate sponsorship and three tiers of event hosting. Sponsors receive packages for ABW events to reward employees or clients. Events hosts benefit from targeted marketing, promotion, and ABW merchandise for giveaways at events.
