With a toast, New Belgium Brewing digs into new Asheville site

Thursday’s groundbreaking ceremony on property along the French Broad River marked a milestone in both place and time for the brewer and the city’s craft beer industry. About 3 p.m., the crowd lifted glasses of RyePA, a beer that New Belgium made with in conjuntcion with ingredients from Asheville’s Riverbend Malt House, and drank to their new brewery.
