  • Shuttle Truck Traffic Cut in Half on Haywood Rd.

    While Haywood Road is our approved truck route, we agree that it is not the preferred truck route and over the last 10 months, we’ve been working with partners to consider other routes. Once RADTIP* is complete, the infrastructure will be in place for the majority of our trucks to use Riverside Drive north. Until then, we’ve found a way to keep half of our shuttle trucks off of Haywood Road. “The community’s collective voice and willingness of neighborhood leaders and City staff to engage in this exploration is what enabled this solution,” says Jay Richardson, New Belgium ...


  • Build-a-Brewery: 1 million moving parts

    We’re about 75% done with the brewery building and will be brewing beer in Asheville by the end of 2015, opening in early 2016. So far in that process, we estimate there are approximately 1,245,675,001 moving parts and people necessary to build a 127,000 SF brewery and 6,000 SF Liquid Center in an 18 acre site…you know, give or take. Our contractor Adolfson & Peterson Construction knows each of those parts and people down to the detail. We met up with Jared Wheatley, Assistant Project Manager with A&P to hear about what keeps the brewery and Liquid Center (LC) on ...


  • Build-a-Brewery: Salvaged Materials, Memories of Place

    Rather than send materials to a landfill, we worked with Old Town Salvage Company and DH Griffin to salvage the old and perfectly reusable materials from the former WNC Livestock Market that was on our 91 Craven Street site in Asheville. What we didn’t salvage, we tried to recycle and we estimate about 97% landfill diversion rate. We plan to use about 60% of those materials as we finish out our brewery and Liquid Center – brewing by the end of 2015 and slated to open in early 2016. Built in the early 1950s on the west bank of the ...


  • Asheville Beer Guy on Asheville and Beer, of course!

    Gregg Allman is not Tony Kiss fan*, and Richard Manuel gave one of his last interviews to Tony in 1986. Over a Witbier at the Wedge last month, Tony, Tim Schaller and I tripped down memory lane of Asheville music and beer. Tony is a native of Kingsport, TN and worked there before working as a police reporter in South Carolina and then moving to Asheville to work as an entertainment reporter for the Asheville Citizen Times in 1984. When he arrived, he found a young music scene and infantile beer scene to fill his articles as the Entertainment writer....
