Please allow me to introduce myself

Thanks to the graciousness of Mark, I have been allowed to become a part of the Asheville Beer Blog team. My name is James, aka Kilgore Trout. If you drink beer in Asheville, it is very likely you have seen me. I've lived in Asheville for almost 10 years and watched the craft beer scene in town literally explode. This is perhaps the best beer town in the South, and arguably the best of its size in the United States, so I feel darn lucky to live here.

My posting philosophy is simple. I want to celebrate the great beer scene that we have, while adding any news that I may encounter about the goings on of our little beer world. I will also try to point out any great beers that may be featured on the local taps or in bottles at your friendly neighborhood beer store. Occasionally I may ruminate on the craft beer scene in general. I hope that I can add to what is already a great blog, and that eventually this will be a place for Asheville beer lovers to connect and communicate.

Again, thanks to Mark, and I look forward to being able to contribute.


  1. I'm going to level with you. Asheville is light-years ahead of Atlanta when it comes to beer. And as an Atlantan (via Nashville), it's quite pathetic. So please, continue to appreciate the good beer Asheville has blessed you with. I like that Highland Porter!
