Chalice Juice Lager Release
Brewed with German grown malt and hops, Chalice Juice is a crisp and refreshing pale lager. A newer hop variety, Hallertau Blanc, gives this beer a fresh white grape flavor without overpowering the tasty malt base. At 4.6 percent ABV, you’ll be able to refill your chalice through the night. Available on October 15 at all Asheville Brewing locations on draft and in limited release 22-ounce bottles for your take-home pleasure.
Asheville Brewing Company & The Hop Ice Cream Cafe team up to fight breast cancer all month long
Yes, you can drink beer, eat ice cream, and support breast cancer education and eradication, all at the same time, in October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Asheville Brewing Company has brewed the special, limited release Mint Berry Rocket–a concoction created by infusing the brewery’s iconic Rocket Girl Lager with fresh mint and organic raspberries (4.2 percent ABV).
Mint Berry Rocket is available in extremely limited release 22-ounce bottles at both Asheville Brewing Company locations. ALL proceeds from the $10 bottle sales will be donated to Susan G. Komen, a non-profit organization dedicated to ending breast cancer forever. Mint Berry Rocket is also on draft, and $1 from every pint sold will benefit Susan G. Komen, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
The Hop Ice Cream Cafe will create a Mint Berry Rocket ice cream and release it at a benefit for Susan G. Komen on Thursday, October 15, at The Hop’s Merrimon Avenue location.
Come by Asheville Brewing Company to purchase your 22-ouncers of Mint Berry Rocket before it’s gone. It’s the bottle with the pink label.
For more information as to how you can support this worthy cause, visit Susan G. Komen.
Farewell to the Mothership, Part Two, Release on Thursday, October 22
The second part in Asheville Brewing Company’s series of brews to commemorate the original brewery location on Merrimon Avenue is a Chocolate Spiced Raspberry Oatmeal Stout. After almost 18 years of pumping out brews behind the bar, the small brewing system at Merrimon Avenue will move to the brewery’s Coxe Avenue location (hopefully by the end of November, if not sooner, depending on permitting). Combining all brewhouse production under one roof will make the brewery more efficient, and give the brew team an in-house pilot system on which to produce more creative one-off specialty brews.
Farewell to the Mothership, Part Two, is a combination of some of Asheville Brewing’s favorite dark beer recipes. A touch of flavor from raspberries, ghost peppers, oats and cacao nibs comes together to create a perfect fall pint with an ABV of 7.6 percent. The first brew in the Farewell to the Mothership series, a dry-hopped sour blonde, is on draft now. Get it while it lasts, at both Asheville Brewing Company brewpub locations.

    Did Asheville city council candidate Lindsey Simerly say that we should fight the state’s attempt to take away the city water system because it’s important for breweries?

    I’m having trouble confirming that.
