It's finally here! On August 22nd, 2015, history will be made when Asheville Brewers Supply (ashevillebrewers.com) hosts Beer City's 1st Annual Homebrewers Conference! Asheville Brewers Supply is Western NC's oldest home for homebrewing, and we've partnered up with FEAST (feastasheville.com), a local non-profit dedicated to promoting healthy eating choices and hands-on learning for people of all income levels. A portion of all proceeds will go to supporting their mission of teaching affordable healthy living to children and adults, so we're really happy about that!
As for the beer stuff...
The conference lineup is sure to serve a diverse and exciting assortment of knowledge droplets to any thirsty brewing enthusiast. On tap, we're serving up the talents and wisdom of the following brewers/breweries:
-Randy Mosher- The man himself! Accomplished "radical brewer," beer connoisseur, and author.
-Chris White- You've heard of White Labs yeast, right? This man puts the White in White Labs.
-Wicked Weed- From one of the hottest breweries in the country right now, co-founder/owner/head blender Walt Dickinson will offer insight into the art of funk, blending, and all that's good.
-Mike Karnowski- Former homebrew shop owner, specialty brewer for Green Man, author, and soon-to-be head brewer at his own new unorthodox brewery. You don't want to miss Mike!
-Bhramari- From Asheville's forthcoming new gastrobrewpub hotspot, Gary Sernack will dazzle and delight us over delicious discussions of the intimate relationships between culinary magic and brewing alchemy.
-Sierra Nevada- From homebrew shop roots to craft beer revolution innovators, Sierra needs no introduction. Yes, they're coming too!
Space is limited, so don't miss out on this opportunity to meet and learn from some of the best in the world of beer! As an added bonus, each brewery will also be sharing some of their lovely brews with the attendants (Yes, you'll also receive a commemorative glass). Mind you, this is an educational event, NOT a drunkfest. If you just want to get wasted, go to a bar or beer festival; we will be serving knowledge, with a side of delicious beer!
Other notes: Water will be available free of charge, and food will be available for purchase. We'll also have a cash-only raffle to further benefit FEAST.
