Brewgrass 2007 in Asheville, North Carolina

Photos and article by FastFred Ruddock, September 22, 2007

Celebrating the Autumn Equinox in Asheville at the 11th Annual Great Smokies Craft Brewers Brewgrass Festival. 39 breweries brought beer to brewgrass and six live bands provided the music. I enjoyed all the local brews and visiting with my friends at French Broad Brewing, Highland Brewing, and Bruisin' Ales. Heinzelmannchen Brewery was my favorite this year with four fine beers: Honey Blonde Ale, Oktoberfest, Hefeweizen Ale, and Black Forest Stout; look forward to a future GRCMMCC event involving a tour of Heinzelmannchen Brewery. Mark Johnsen RJ Rockers Brewing brought some mighty fine brew; I especially enjoyed the Bell Ringer Double IPA. Highland Brewing Company brought a limited release of Imperal Kashmir IPA; the limited release was strong but tasty with a nice hoppy flavor.

There was no line at the water table but note the long line still waiting to get into Brewgrass
