It's been a rather exciting time for Western North Carolina beer over the past year. Oskar Blues has been brewing locally made Dales Pale Ale (and others), Sierra Nevada has been busy installing their brewing tanks, and New Belgium is preparing to start construction on their brewery in the River Arts District. In addition, there are at least four new breweries that will make their home in Asheville in the coming year. To celebrate all this beer goodness, The Second Annual Asheville Beer Week will be taking place from May 25th to June 1st. There will be plenty of events during the course of the week, and it will all culminate in the Fourth Annual Beer City Festival on June 1st (tickets go on sale locally starting Monday). Leading up to that week, a team of bloggers, including yours truly, will be writing about the beer scene here in the mountains of Western North Carolina. I invite you to follow our blog, and join us in celebrating the great beer culture we have established. Maybe I'll actually start posting with more regularity after its all said and done.
