ASAP’s Local Summer Cookout will feature the talents of Chef Philip Bollhoefer of the Omni Grove Park Inn. Join us at the beautiful, brand new Catawba Brewery on the South Slope on August 13, 5:30-9 pm as we cook out summer-style with Hickory Nut Gap Farm pork ribs, all your favorite summer sides, and special desserts, courtesy of Vortex Doughnuts! Two batches of Catawba brew will be featured with all of the ingredients sourced from North Carolina farmers. Catawba will also be unveiling their new t-shirts using North Carolina cotton.

Tickets are only $20, which will also enter you into a raffle for two private dinners at the Omni Grove Park Inn’s Edison Craft Ales + Kitchen, a Catawba Brewery gift basket, and a free pass to ASAP’s Farm Tour! Tickets are good for food; beer and other drinks will be sold separately. Reduced price tickets for children 12 and under, available at the door. All ticket proceeds benefit ASAP. The brewery is located at 32 Banks Avenue in downtown Asheville.

We have closed online ticket sales for the cookout. A limited number of tickets will be available at the door.
