August 19: Riverkeeper Beer Series at New Belgium Brewing

Join us for another great summer of great beers and fun on the river with the French Broad Riverkeeper Beer Series, presented by MountainTrue and Blue Ridge Orthodontics and sponsored by Mix 96.5.

From June through August, there will be five French Broad Riverkeeper Beer Series events that will include clean-ups and float trips on the French Broad River. Floaters and clean-up volunteers are then invited to sample a new limited-release beer from one of six participating breweries, including Hi-Wire Brewing, New Belgium Brewing, Oskar Blues Brewery, Wedge Brewing Company and Wicked Weed Brewing. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of these very special beers goes to support the work of the French Broad Riverkeeper protecting the French Broad River watershed.

Each French Broad Riverkeeper Beer Series event will also be co-sponsored by a local outdoor gear manufacturer who will donate prizes, apparel and gear that will be raffled off at the release parties to support the cause. Supporting gear builders include Astral, Eagles Nest Outfitters (ENO), Liquid Logic Kayaks, Nantahala Outdoor Center (NOC), and Watershed.

The Riverkeeper Beer Series includes the August 3 Save the French Broad River Concert starring Michael Franti & Spearhead. Tickets for the concert are on sale now. Get more information and Buy Tickets for the Save the French Broad Concert on Eventbrite.
