We have designed some incredible glassware for you to take with you in commemoration of this year’s Burnpile. It will be issued to you upon entry of the festival grounds. Please keep this safely and securely on you during your time at the event, as all festival pours will be served in your glass. We will have water stations available to rinse your glass or fill your water bottle.
All arrivals should navigate to 35 London Rd, Asheville, NC 28803
We do not have parking on the street or on our property for Burnpile. There is very limited parking at Ferguson’s on London Rd across from the property which should be reserved for Designated Drivers and those with disabilities. We will have a parking attendant for the first part of the event helping direct people.
If you do park in the Ferguson Parking Lot, please ensure your car is moved by 6AM Monday 10/17 or it will be towed.
Bus S1 from the downtown Transit Station (entrances on Asheland Ave and Coxe Ave) will bring you close to Forestry Camp. You can park near our taproom on Collier and walk up! There are also a lot of other bus stops around downtown for the S1. This quick bus ride stops at the corner of Shady and London- runs until 10:30PM- It only costs $1!
There is a significant shortage of ride share drivers in the Greater Asheville area. While we don’t want to discourage their use in any way, but want to call this to your attention to plan in advance. Please note that we highly advise using either a Designated Driver, arranging for safe and reliable transportation by someone not partaking in the festivities or the above listed public transit option. This is a beer festival where you will receive unlimited pours, so we urge you for your own safety to enjoy responsibly.
Food from the Chefs at Burial Forestry Camp and the Grey Eagle Taqueria will be available for purchase at Burnpile.
VIP Ticket Holders receive a complimentary meal ticket redeemable at the Forestry Camp kitchen.
