Asheville Brews Cruise Winter Warmer Festival



2017's Brewery Lineup

Asheville Brewing Co.
Brewing some of the best ales since 1998! We're crazy about great beer and we really know our hops! We've been brewing up some of the finest beer mankind has ever tasted. We have our usual lineup, but with the new brewer series, we've started to push the paradigm and have come up with some amazing creations that are quickly becoming the preferred pint at the table. From our jalapeno infused Fire Escape, the Mardi Gras inspired Bier de Garde, to the malty, yet hoppy Ashevillian black I.P.A. We've let our imaginations wander and you'll love what we've got on tap for you next!

Granite Falls Brewing Company
111+ Years of Beverage Production and Bottling Onsite"While you're enjoying our restaurant, tasting room, or patio, we're writing a Great American Story together. It began in 1903, when Herbert Vance Bolick (later joined by his brother Arthur F. Bolick) invested approximately $1,000 to launch Granite Bottling Works, a soda bottling company. A one-room brick building—dubbed "Bolick's Bottling Plant" —where thirty-five cases per day would be produced and product would be delivered by horse and wagon, took root on the property.

Yazoo
Yazoo Brewing really started with a homebrewing kit bought from the back pages of Rolling Stone in 1993. I was a cash-poor college student living in an old farmhouse in Virginia, and brewing my own beer seemed a little less illegal than the pot-growing operation my other housemates were involved in. I was amazed that I could make something that actually tasted like beer at home! I kept on brewing, even when my wife Lila and I returned home to Mississippi after college, and then when we moved to Nashville in 1996.
