Asheville Liquid Center Opens for Tastings

Apr 29, 2016

On Monday, May 2, join us to kick back along the French Broad River in Asheville and sip a Fat Tire Amber Ale in our sparkling new “Liquid Center” tasting room! The doors swing open at 21 Craven St., Asheville, NC and you can taste New Belgium beers for the first time in our east coast home. Tasting room hours are Monday through Saturday, 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Sunday noon to 8:00 p.m. Public brewery tours will start later this summer. Please bike, walk or bus to us if you can, and if you choose to drive, please mind parking signs and keep bike lanes clear.


Year-round and current seasonal offerings are always on tap, and Lips of Faith and Hop Kitchen series beers are available upon release. La Folie, our sour flagship, pours on Sundays and occasionally guests will find a rare or one-off beer as a surprise. Gluten-reduced Glütiny pale and golden ales are available.

On tap only at New Belgium and available in Folly Packs through May, RyePA is a hoppy specialty beer brewed with Carolina Rye™, heirloom rye grown in North Carolina and floor malted by Riverbend Malt House in Asheville. RyePA also incorporates rye from Colorado Malting, a fourth-generation family farm in Alamosa, CO. 


An August 27, 2016 CeleBEERation in Asheville, will mark our 25th anniversary and Asheville brewery opening. Tickets will be available at this summer. Fat Tire Amber Ale and Ranger IPA are flowing from the Asheville brewery to cold boxes and taps on the east coast.
