ASHEVILLE – Interested in a free ticket to the Winter Warmer Beerfest? Sign up to volunteer at the festival with the Western North Carolina Alliance!
The sixth annual Winter Warmer is 3-7 p.m. Jan. 26 at the U.S. Cellular Center. It’s sure to help you shake off the winter blahs with great brews from more than 30 regional craft breweries, awesome music and good eats.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit WNCA in our mission to empower citizens to be advocates for livable communities and the natural environment of Western North Carolina.
Tickets are $40 – but if you volunteer with WNCA, your entry is free! If you’re interested, email French Broad Riverkeeper Hartwell Carson at Hartwell@wnca.org for details.
Winter Warmer is co-hosted by ThreeSheets: Design, Brews Cruise, Inc. and the French Broad Brewing Co. All previous festivals have sold out in advance, so be sure to get your tickets soon!
