Man hand clink beer woman nature fun octoberfest.
In addition to the best day spa in North Carolina, Asheville offers breathtaking natural beauty, historic landmarks and cultural arts. Fall is a wonderful time of year to explore everything this town has going for it. And there’s nothing like a visit to Asheville’s Spa Theology, to put you in a healthy state of mind and body to enjoy it all.
By the end of this month, the leaves will be changing and surrounding us with fiery colors. If you want to go out and explore – or come here to experience the glories of fall in the mountains for yourself, the Convention and Visitors Bureau offers a handy Fall Color Forecast and Report you can refer to.
Fall Festivals Worthy of a Toast
You may not know this, but Asheville claims the title of Beer City USA. And this time of year, you’ll find plenty of ways to celebrate our local and regional craft breweries, including:
- Brewgrass, October 5, Salvage Station
Brewgrass sees new life in 2019 as the festival shifts its focus to the burgeoning music scene in Asheville. The Sam Bush Band headlines the event which takes place from 3 p.m. to midnight. Your ticket gets you access to the great music. A curated list of 100 beers, ciders and ginger beers will be available for purchase from nine bars located on the festival grounds.
- Asheville Oktoberfest, October 5, Pack Square Park
Brush up on your keg-rolling skills for this fest, which transforms downtown streets into a traditional German party featuring tastings from local breweries. Live “oompah” music and local foods complete this fall tradition.
- CiderFest NC, October 12, Salvage Station
So, technically this isn’t beer, but it is a really sweet fall festival. Since it began in 2013, CiderFest has become North Carolina’s premier hard cider tasting event. Tickets are $30 in advance or $40 day-of at Salvage Station.
- Sierra Nevada Oktoberfest, October 12, Mills River (SOLD OUT)
If you already bought your tickets, you can be looking forward to wearing your lederhosen and hoisting a stein next month. If not, you can look forward to enjoying all the great food, costumes, dancing and music next year. Tickets for this year’s Sierra Nevada Oktoberfest, an annual celebration that draws thousands of beer lovers to Asheville, are already sold out.
- Burnpile Harvest Fest, October 12, Burial Beer Co. Taproom
Burnpile celebrates the harvest season with seasonally inspired beers from more than 20 breweries. Many beers are brewed just for the event. The festival also features a strong lineup of live music performances.
When it comes to craft beer in Asheville, Spa Theology keeps the celebration going all year with our Burial Beer Treatment, which takes advantage of beer’s ability to freshen, soothe and hydrate the skin. This 90-minute treatment includes:
- A custom pressure massage
- Restorative hand therapy
- A Burial Beer Co hop-infused body wrap, and
- A refreshing glass of beer from Burial Beer Co., a taproom and brewhouse located in downtown Asheville.
