What to Expect At Beer City Fest 2019

We want to make sure you have all the information you need

A beer fest collaboration with Asheville Van Life where vans are “tour-able” pouring stations

Refreshing, Crisp Summer Beers  This year's BCF is focusing on the type of beer you want to drink when it's hot - crisp, refreshing, sessionable beer from some of the best brewers in the state. A larger pour of low ABV beer means so you can hang in ENO hammocks rather than wait in lines.

Vans as Pouring Stations  Asheville Van Life vans will serve as "tour-able" pouring stations, with breweries partnering with the van lifers to create an encompassing experience. Climb inside the vehicle, or grab a brewery rep to play a round of Kan Jam in the grass.
