About the Asheville Brewgrass Festival
Like we mentioned before, the Brewgrass Festival started 21 years ago. Asheville Brewgrass 2017 will take place on Saturday, September 16th from noon to 6:00 PM. The festival is not only a huge part of the beer community but the overall community as well. Regional breweries and beer lovers come together for the festival. Beer lovers get to have a taste and a chat with the breweries to see what ingredients were used, what beers are being brewed now, and more.
Benefits Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Western North Carolina
All of us at The Orchard Inn, along with our friends at the Brewgrass Festival, are proud to support the Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Western North Carolina. Many of the proceeds of the Brewgrass Festival go to back into our community by helping young people achieve their greatest potential. By matching an individual adult mentor to identified local at-risk children, young people are encouraged to strive for excellence while also staying away from the dangerous snares and pitfalls that all too often snag and entrap the future generations.
