Yet Another Accolade for Asheville’s Beer Scene

Sometimes there’s nothing quite like a round of microbrews at lunch to get those creative juices flowing. You’d be amazed at what a little barley and hops can do to stimulate some ideas for a new marketing campaign or logo concept. (Well…at least that’s our story and we’re sticking to it!)

Just when we’ve almost taken the Asheville beer scene for granted, we get a little reminder of how great our little town is:

Asheville, North Carolina, USA
Underdog Asheville beat out brew king Portland in a battle for “Beer City USA” in 2009 and some Pacific Northwesterners will never forgive them. But they should. Along with a big city-worthy music scene, a drop-dead-gorgeous mountain backdrop and good old southern hospitality, Asheville has one brewery for every 10,000 of its citizens, including the rocking Highland Brewing Company. That puts it right at Portland’s heels with the second most breweries per capita in the U.S.”

Bonus: Asheville also holds three annual beer fests – Brewgrass, Oktoberfest and Winter Warmer — throughout the year.”
