Craft beer has grown dramatically in both popularity and volume in recent years, with new brewpubs, microbreweries and regional craft breweries becoming commonplace in towns throughout the Carolinas. Tryon’s proximity to what NPR has called the “Napa Valley of beer” isn’t overlooked, and festival organizers will be featuring several breweries that are also featured on Untappd.

Whether you’re an aspiring home-brewer or just appreciate the wide variety of flavors now available to beer-lovers, Tryon Beer Fest will focus on the very best local and regional beers something many other festivals do not. Plus, you can count on this local event to have short lines and unlimited samples!

Beer festivals are as much about craft beer education as they are about community fun, and with just a few taps on your phone, Untappd will take your 2017 Tryon Beer Fest experience to the next level, plus you’ll connect with other drinkers and venues everywhere you go.

It’s free, so why not give it a try? Once you download and install the app, be sure to search for Tryon Beer Fest under Venues, and then select “All Notifications” to make sure you are notified when a new beer is added to the growing Nov. 4 menu.

Tryon Beer Fest tickets can be purchased online or in person at The Tryon Bottle on Trade Street. There are also a very limited number of special VIP tickets this year for the first time, which includes early entry, a private VIP area, $15 festival credit and more. Visit to get your tickets today!

This event is produced by the Tryon Downtown Development Association with a partnership benefiting The Foothills Humane Society. This is a rain or shine event. No minors, pets, or guns allowed, and ID is required at the gate! Follow us on Facebook. Cheers!
