This year, Tryon Beer Fest will welcome local and regional musicians: Suburban Angst and the Carburetors.

The Tryon Beer Fest combines small town charm with entertainment and quality one would expect in a big city, representatives said. The festival prides itself on short lines, and tickets are capped at 1000 to preserve the small-town feel.

The festival is  21-plus event, and no dogs allowed in the festival boundaries.

This event is produced by the Tryon Downtown Development Association, and funds raised will benefit downtown improvement projects.
