What is The Funk Collective weekend all about?

The Funk Collective is an annual invitational festival focused on breweries that have a dedicated funk and sour program. This two-day event includes a smaller, intimate Friday evening focused on local artisanal food and brews, rare beer bottles, and the craft beer community of the Upstate. On Saturday we have the main event, a ticketed 500+ festival featuring beers from 25+ independent breweries across the nation.

This event will rotate year to year between Birds Fly South in Greenville, SC and Revelry Brewing Co in Charleston, SC.

Tickets

Ticket prices for each of the sessions include a commemorative tasting glass, unlimited two-ounce samples of your choice of beers, and a festival guide to help you navigate the taps and tents. Profits from the Funk Collective go to Eblen-Kimmel Charities in Asheville, NC. More information on parking, shuttles, and other day-of information will be emailed to ticket holders as it becomes available.

The Funk Collective Festival

VIP Early Entry at 3pm, Festival 4-8pm

Includes 30+ breweries from across the nation, all of whom are committed to producing funky and sour beers. Also includes a food ticket for two White Duck tacos.

The format for Saturday will be slightly different than most beer festivals. We will tap kegs and pop bottles in a communal, mixed lineup. In other words, real time tapping.

Attendees will use their festival map to navigate the various stations. Every station will rotate each beer, with no brewery pouring consecutive beers. Time is relative to the rate each station/keg is emptied. It’s about a flow. Think massive bottle share.
