2:00 pm - 5:45 pm
Touring/Sampling:Twin Leaf, Green Man Dirty Jack’s and Hi-Wire’s Big Top Brewing.
This tour meets in Pack Square outside the Asheville Art Museum, which is in the heart of downtown Asheville at the intersection of Patton Avenue and Biltmore Avenue, at 1:45 PM. From there it is a short ride in our Brew Bus to the South Slope Brewing District and our first stop Twin Leaf Brewery which keeps regulars coming back for favorites such as the 144 (Code Name: Juicy Fruit), an IPA known for its bright citrus hop aroma. Along with the 144, Twin Leaf offers a wide selection of house beers including the Dark Matter Oatmeal Stout and the White Noise Belgian Wit among others. From Twin Leaf we pop over to check out Green Man Brewing’s original Brew House Dirty Jack’s. The spirit of Green Man can be found fermenting at Dirty Jack’s on groovy Buxton Avenue, Green Man’s original (and Asheville’s first) taproom. Dirty’s is also where they brew all of their specialty and taproom exclusive beer. The bar is laid into the brewery so you can enjoy a pint while observing the legendary Green Man brewers in action. After Green Man we will leave the South Slope and head down into the Historic Biltmore Village to tour Hi-Wire’s large scale production brewhouse 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. Hi-Wire has a canning line and conveniently packages their beer in 6 packs for wide distribution. The tour will end with drop off back downtown at the Asheville Art Museum where you’ll have the rest of Beer City at your fingertips!
