2013 Winter Warmer Beer Festival

This is a great way to try many different beers.

Tickets are $40 per person and will include a souvenir mug, samples during the event, and food provided by a local caterer.

It is highly recommend purchasing tickets in advance, as the last five years’ events have sold out. You can purchase tickets online at http://www.ashevillebeerfest.com/.

Note: I'm putting this up primarily for informational purposes. Finding each other at these large brew fests is notoriously difficult as we all constantly meander from booth to booth. We'll try to arrange a couple specific vendor/time slots where we can gather. Maybe we can steal the MALT beer tour idea and put a Meetup sign on a big stick?

    We're here, first in line for the Main entry line. I'm in a grey peacoat AMD knee-high boots, my better half is bald with a green USMC hoodie. Come on over!

    I'm up for meeting someplace like the Bier Garden beforehand, if for no other reason than to actually MEET. Are we doing the paper hat thing? If we lack VIP passes, what time should we plan on being in line at the US Cellular Center? This is an indoor, climate-controlled venue, right? Thanks.

      I am planning on getting to Bier Garden around 1:30-1:45 (in the bar area). We can then head over to the Civic Center (yes it is climate controlled) around 2:15-2:30.

      I think I will skip Bier Garden and go straight to the Civic Center.

    Does anyone want to meet at Bier Garden before the event? I am planning to be in line around 2:30. Once in, the first place I am going is Cigar City.

      By the time I got my tickets, the VIP passes had sold out.

    I'm sure we will all (or at least most) be able to meet up at the beginning and then take it from there.

    My hubby and I also are relatively new to the area, don't have a ton of friends, and would love to make some new ones. Let me know if anyone wants to carpool. Looking forward to it!

    I think Tommy is making paper hats for everyone to wear... The week before I will post a couple of meeting places and times for the group to meet during the event.

      You missed it tonight... I was wearing the grandest of paper hats! Too bad no pic...it's too dark in there.

    Hi Carmen,
    You are welcome to hang out with me if you like. I'm new to the group so I won't know anyone unless they're wearing the paper hats and special shoes ;)

      What's next? Planning a meetup in Georgetown, Guyana... a beer meetup, not kool-aid.

    I am working on making paper hats with the meetup logo on one side, and our beer club log on the other side.
