Description

Join us on Saturday, June 17 for the kickoff of the second annual French Broad Riverkeeper Beer Series, presented by MountainTrue and Blue Ridge Orthodontics and sponsored by Mix 96.5.

Participants have the choice of taking part in either a river clean-up on the Swannanoa River or a float trip on the French Broad River, and everyone is invited to meet back up at the release party of Hi-Wire Brewing’s new, limited-release MountainTrue Mango IPA at their Big Top Location in the Biltmore Village area.

This is the first of five French Broad Riverkeeper Beer Series events that will include river 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 five 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 Eagles Nest Outfitters (ENO), Liquid Logic Kayaks, Nantahala Outdoor Center (NOC), and Watershed.

DETAILS:

Clean up crew participants and those who purchase a float trip ticket with a shuttle option will meet at Hi-Wire Brewing's Big Top Location at 2A Huntsman Place on Saturday June 17 at 1 p.m.

Clean-up crew participants go for fee and the first ten to signup will get a French Broad Riverkeeper Beer Series t-shirt for free. Each clean-up crew participant receives a voucher for one free beer.

Clean-up and float participants get a raffle ticket and a chance to win tickets to the Save the French Broad River Concert starring Michael Franti and Spearhead on August 3 at the Salvage Station.

Float trip participants who buy a shuttle ticket will be picked up from Hi-Wire Big Top at 1 p.m. and shuttled by French Broad Outfitters to Hominy Creek Park.

Float trip participants who buy a non-shuttle ticket will still meet us at Hi-Wire Big Top at 1 p.m. but will have to arrange their own shuttle to Hominy Creek Park.
