Are you ready for a fun way to stay warm and have fun this winter season? Get ready to grab a mug and drink up. The Asheville Winter Warmer Beer Fest is Asheville’s longest running winter beer festival. This year’s 10th anniversary event will be held on Saturday, January 21 at the U.S. Cellular Center Asheville in Downtown Asheville, one of America’s best beer cities.

Patrons can taste and enjoy beer from dozens of local and regional breweries in an intimate, ‘family-like’ setting. The 2017 lineup includes Asheville Brewing, Birdsong, Lazy Hiker Brewing, New Belgium, and Sierra Nevada. This year’s guest brewery is Prairie Artisan Ales all the way from Tulsa Oklahoma.  Live music entertainment will be provided by Asheville’s very own Station Underground and The Rinaldi Flying Circus, who hail from Greensboro, NC.

The event is hosted by MountainTrue, which works to keep our forests healthy, our air and water clean, and our NC mountain communities vibrant with its various chapters throughout Western North Carolina.

The Western North Carolina region is gaining quite a reputation as one of the best beer cities in Asheville. It’s also home to one of the best NC mountain communities in the area, The Coves Mountain River Club near the High Country. What’s makes The Coves unique and better? For starters, stellar mountain top views in all directions from our Pisgah Mountain Lodge and five miles of frontage on the Johns River, a mountain fed crystal-clear river adjacent to Wilson Creek. The water is so fantastic here, we wouldn’t be surprised to see breweries open in the foothills of North Carolina. The latest brewery to open in Lenoir is Howard Brewing Company.

Residents love our panoramic mountain views, friendly community atmosphere, and wellness amenities. Natural amenities include waterfalls, hiking trails and community gardens. Spread across 3,600 acres, we have all types of mountain property to build your dream home. Approximately 75 homes have already been built to date.

If you’re searching for affordable NC mountain land for sale, we offer many homesite options. Our prices begin in the $40’s. To help you more, here’s 12 of the most popular builder floor plans that can work on almost any of our homesites.   

When you live in the Asheville area, you’ll not only enjoy some of the microbreweries in America, you’ll enjoy outdoor recreation second to none. Hike, bike or drive. The choice is yours. The Blue Ridge Parkway is America’s Favorite Drive and weaves from Bryson City, through the heart of Asheville and up through the High Country near The Coves. And that’s just the beginning of fun things to do surround the NC mountain communities.
