This is a follow up to one of Mark's previous posts. If you haven't already heard, Carl Melissas, former Green Man brewer, is going to be the brewmaster at a new brewpub that is looking to open in the fall of this year if everything goes well. It will be located at the Wedge Gallery in the River Arts District. If you haven't been to the River Arts District, this weekend would be an excellent opportunity, as they are having their biannual Studio Stroll from 10-6 Saturday and Sunday.
Anyway, on to the beer news. I spoke with Carl about a month ago, and he is very excited about the new space. They plan on having 8 taps, which will feature his Pale, IPA, Pilsner, Oatmeal Stout, Organic Porter, Gollum (yum), and 2 rotating seasonals, one of which will be Belgian style. Needless to say, I am certainly looking forward to seeing Carl brewing again in Asheville.
If you have read this before, it was probably a post by me at Beerinator.com, a great forum for North Carolina beer drinkers.
