This second-annual event is brought to you by the Green Built Alliance (also known for the very popular CiderFest NC fundraiser in Asheville each fall). We are launching this new winter beer festival, Brew Horizons, as a fundraiser for our nonprofit’s latest campaign – the BLUE HORIZONS PROJECT, which serves as a resource hub to empower every community member to do their part in creating our region’s clean-energy future. One initiative is Energy Savers Network, which provides free home upgrades to help low-income families save money and energy while staying warmer through the winter.

During the coldest time of year, we’re coming together as a community to enjoy craft drinks from a variety of Western North Carolina’s best breweries and cideries, while supporting our region’s clean-energy future. Help us make this event a true success, while we help warm hearts and homes across Western North Carolina, one beer at a time!

Since events held by Green Built Alliance have sold out in recent years, people are encouraged to buy tickets early.
