My youngest son turned 21 last year and he wanted to go to Asheville for a birthday present with his older brother and me. Unfortunately, our schedules didn’t align and it never happened. Well, he recently celebrated his 22nd birthday and we have been able to find time on our calendars during the weekend of November 4-6 to celebrate his birthday, where we will head to Asheville and enjoy the sights, sounds, and tastes of the Asheville brewery scene.
Our tentative schedule will take us to Oskar Blues in Brevard, Sierra Nevada in Mills River, and Burial, Twin Leaf, Wicked Weed, and Hi-Wire in the Asheville South Slope district. I hope to show the boys that craft beer is more about quality than quantity and to teach them that the breweries put their heart and soul into brewing a beverage that is to be savored and enjoyed rather than chugged. I am especially excited to visit Oskar Blues,
where we will be attending their BA Ten Fidy release party! I will certainly be picking up some stovepipe cans to bring back home!!
It will be a fun weekend. I enjoy the company of my two boys and getting together for a weekend in Asheville should be a good time. Asheville is a laid back place and it’s a great place to people watch. I hope to park the car and Uber to all of our locations so we won’t need to worry about driving. I’d rather spend some money to get us around the area than a lot of money dealing with a court case!
I hope to speak to as many of the brewmasters as I can about their Stout offerings and will share their thoughts in a future blog. I’m looking forward to the weekend and I’d like any and all recommendations or insights you would be willing to share about Asheville and their craft beer community. What did you do in Asheville that we should do?
