A beer festival is a celebration of beer and beer culture. I have about 6 beer festival with in a 2 hour drive to choose from every year. If I extend the drive to four hours I have at least 10-15. This weekend I’m in Asheville, North Carolina for the Asheville Winter Warmer Beer Fest. I plan to do some real time updating as I go along. Please have some patience if it’s hard to read. I’m doing it from my telephone and it’s sometimes hard to type. I will do the editing after.
