Congratulations to Emily Young Hopson (@egrace85) who has won the votes of the people to become the Mayor Of Brewgrass 2015!

Dozens of eager candidates tagged their beer-centric Instagram pics with #MayorOfBrewgrass to enter and then a panel of judges narrowed them down to 5 finalists. Folks were then able to vote for their favorite, and although it was pretty close there for awhile between two bovine-loving beer fans, Emily came through with the win.

As the Mayor Of Brewgrass, Emily gets:

  • A one of a kind mayoral sash and tasting cup worthy of your title
  • Two (2) VIP Passes to Brewgrass Festival 2015 on September 19th at Memorial Stadium
  • Two (2) Invites to the Brewer’s Only Dinner on September 18th
  • A Gift Basket of Brewgrass Festival goodies from our participating breweries and sponsors
  • Two (2) Tickets to Brewgrass Festival 2016

The 19th Annual Brewgrass Festival takes place on Saturday, September 19th in Memorial Stadium in Asheville, NC.
