Pisgah Brewing in Black Mountain is fast gaining a reputation as one of the finest small breweries in North Carolina. The organic beers from this brewery have all been distinctive representatives of their styles and uniformly excellent in quality. The Pale Ale and the Porter have become staples of the Asheville bar scene, while a variety of seasonal brews have also received wide attention. The Solstice, a tripel which was Pisgah's first Belgian-style brew, took home the gold medal and was voted 2nd best in Show at the 2006 Carolina Beer Championship.
In the works is a seasonal Belgian named Baptista which will be released for Christmas. I'm eagerly looking forward to it, but for now I'll be satisfied with the other fine products available on draft. For a list of area bars offering Pisgah beers see their web site.
Keep up the good work guys! Hopefully I can get out for a tour soon.
