Touring/Sampling: Catawba, Wedge, HiWire and French Broad Brewery
This tour meets at the Zebulon Vance Memorial, which is in the heart of downtown Asheville at the intersection of Patton Avenue and Biltmore Avenue at 3:00pm. From there it is a short ride to the South Slope and our first stop Catawba Brewing. Since 1999 Catawba has produced exceptional flagship styles such as their White Zombie Wit Beer and Seasonals like the Peanut Butter Jelly Time. With a variety of ales on tap everyday it is easy to see why Catawba appeals to all beer drinkers. Our second stop is the Wedge Brewery which was established in 2008 in Asheville's River Arts District. The Wedge specializes in small batch brews and does not distribute their beer. Quite simply, what is brewed at the Wedge is drank at the Wedge. They quickly became a local favorite with styles such as the Iron Rail IPA combined with their relaxed artsy atmosphere. From the Wedge we will head to tour HiWire's large scale production brew house known as the Big Top. This circus themed brewery makes a true year round Lager as well as a large variety of Ales such as the Hi-Pitch IPA. HiWire has a bottling line and conveniently packages their beer in 6 packs for wide distribution. Next, we head into the Historic Biltmore Village to French Broad Brewery. With year round favorites such as the German influenced Gateway Kolsch, English 13 Rebels ESB, American West Coast IPA and the Wee-Heavier Scottish Ale it's no wonder why French Broad's motto is, "World Beer, Asheville Flavor." After our 4 stops we drop off back downtown at the Vance where you'll find the rest of the Beer City at your fingertips!
