Celebrate Beer City USA with the new Asheville Beer Week (2012) Badge

Posted on May 16, 2012 by Craig Bowman


Untappd is releasing a new badge to celebrate Asheville Beer Week.  The first ever Asheville Beer Week will run from May 24 through June 3, 2012.  Asheville, NC is well known for becoming a multi-year winner of the “Beer City, USA” title, and has recently had announcements that Sierra Nevada and New Belgium will soon build breweries in Asheville.

The Asheville Brewers Alliance stated: “Our mission is to celebrate that nectar known as beer—to taste many different styles of beer and variations on those styles; to pair beer with a smorgasbord of delicious foods; to learn about and explore beer in all its delectable complexity; and, most of all, to have fun drinking beer in the brewery-centric mountains of Asheville, NC.

The “week” will include seminars, tastings, dinners, and special events with “beer celebrities” from around the country and the world. More than 40 breweries are slated to appear at Beer City Festival already.

Organized by a beer-loving bunch of regional beer industry folks, Asheville Beer Week will offer a variety of events and include as many bars, restaurants and breweries as possible.”
