An Addendum

And now I am up to three posts in one night, a new record.

I failed to mention that French Broad Brewing Company is installing a bottling operation, and the first beer to be bottled on the new setup will be the Dunkel Witte, one of Drew's latest creations that was unveiled at the Asheville Winter Warmer Beer Festival. He also hopes to have the Wee Heavy-er available in bottles soon after that.

Also, Asheville Pizza and Brewing Company has a new beer, the Rocket 77, a light easy drinking beer brewed with lager yeast that should go over well as the days get warmer.


  1. Hello!
    Glad to hear the French Broad is bottling. I am in love with all the local brews. I love the setup at the French Broad. I am always taking visitors over to pick up some growlers and listen to music.

  2. You know, don't you, that the Rocket 77 is just a rename of their Gold? They thought there were too many golds and goldens out there, so they changed the name to differentiate the brew. Same old beer, though.

    I'm psyched for French Broad. I think, given the number of microbreweries in the area, that to survive, bottling will be a necessity.

  3. Ha, I didn't know that. I don't think I ever had the original gold, as I am always getting either the Shiva or the Rolands.
