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.
tickets sold out by September 7th. Make sure you order
your tickets well in advance next year!
