Asheville Beer Week (ABW) is an annual event celebrating all things craft beer by showcasing Western North Carolina’s brewery sector. Supported by Asheville Brewers Alliance, ABW is organized by a volunteer committee of regional beer industry tastemakers. Asheville Beer Week kicks off on May 22 and features an amazing line-up of tastings, dinners, beer education, and other beer-related fun before culminating with the sixth annual Beer City Festival on May 30. Asheville Beer Week is one of the best opportunities to experience first hand why more than 25 breweries were started here and still call Western North Carolina home, and what drew Sierra Nevada, Oskar Blues and New Belgium to build second homes here.
