Asheville Brews Cruise Winter Warmer Festival

Need something to “Shake Up” the Winter Blahs?

Join us for the 9th Annual Winter Warmer Beer Festival!

Mark your calendars for the 9th Annual Asheville Winter Warmer Beer Festival on Saturday, January 23, 2016, from 3:00 - 7:00pm - provided to you by MountainTrue,  ThreeSheets:Design and Brews Cruise, Inc.

This year’s Winter Warmer event will be held at the U.S. Cellular Center Asheville (Asheville Civic Center) again, in Downtown Asheville. Thanks to all of you, each year’s festival is bigger and better than the year before - so hopefully, 2016’s Winter Warmer Festival will be the best yet!


We highly recommend purchasing tickets in advance, as the last five years’ events have sold out.

"9th Anniversary" Guest Brewery

We purposely try to provide an intimate, "beer family"-like environment for our festival goers - so we typically only reach out to local and regional breweries to participate in our festival. However, its always nice to try something different, or in particular, a brew that isnt' readily available to us here in WNC - so that is why we invite special guests to our event.

2016's GUEST BREWERY is still being determined...

Check back soon for an update!
