Brews Cruise

In recognition of its nine local microbreweries--all in the downtown area, Asheville has been named "Beer City, USA."

Join us for the first-ever, hopefully annual,  South Central Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies Brews Cruise. This tasty tour of three microbreweries--all in downtown Asheville--will be held on Wednesday afternoon.  The focus will be on the brew, but our knowledgeable guides will also lead us on a tour of the breweries, discuss the brew-making process, and answer our questions along the way. Our special SCSECS Asheville Brews Cruise tour guide will pick us up at the Grove Park Inn and, after our cruise, will return us to the hotel.  No driving involed; no taxis needed. 

I hope you will join us for the SCSECS cruise!  Seating is limited, so be sure to reserve your space early.  Since this event is scheduled prior to the official opening of the confernence, registration for this event is separate from the conference registration.
