Tap into Tryon potential

Published 4:09pm Tuesday, November 13, 2012

On a beautiful, almost summer-like day, hundreds of people gathered in downtown Tryon to tap into the inaugural Tryon Beer Festival and into the potential of Tryonites’ creativity.

The day offered everything – scenic mountain views, savory morsels of German food, flowing brews from both nationally-known and locally-favored brewers and intriguing demonstrations.

Event interest not only drew people from nearby towns of Landrum and Columbus, but also from further away reaches like Roebuck, S.C. Area residents also brought friends and families to the festival from as far as Atlanta and Savannah, Ga.

Why should this matter to you?

Members of Tryon Downtown Development Association (TDDA) and other interested parties banned together to make this event happen for more than just the fun of getting together a large group of people over a common interest.

They put this event together – spending months calling breweries and organizing every last detail – to attract more people to the Tryon area.
