Not long after, Beer Street Journal got wind of a “counter festival” with the ex-pats from the Invitational to rise in place. Ultimately- the brewers that were previously involved in the festival still wanted to have a funk-ing good wild and sour ale party this summer. Just not with Wicked Weed and and their new ABI friends.
Here are the details we’ve been sitting on. The new festival is called “The Funk Collective” and will take place at Birds Fly South in Greenville, South Carolina with Revelry Brewing and city based badasses, The Community Tap. Full details are found below.
All profits will still benefit the Eblen-Kimmel Charity of Asheville.
See you there.
