  • 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....

     

  • Brewing for Greenways: Get your greenway on, Asheville

    BREWING FOR GREENWAYS Much like the brewing community enjoys a good collaboration, putting greenway plans into place takes partnerships. Our friends at Highland Brewing Company hosted us to brew Footpath, a Belgian Session Ale, and $2 of every pint sold will go to Friends of Connect Buncombe, a non-profit developing a greenway network across Buncombe County. The greenway connector beer will be tapped at 4:00 p.m. at Highland on Friday, June 26, 2015 and the brewers will be hanging out from about 6-6:30 p.m. Catalyzed by Highland Brewing Company and New Belgium Brewing in 2015, Brewing for Greenways is ...

     

  • Build-a-Brewery: Cold Beer, Warm Feet

    This month we poured the concrete floors in the Asheville Liquid Center, and while it may look like any concrete floor, embedded in it is approximately 4,000 feet of ½ inch PEX tubing, installed by Asheville-based renewable energy company Sundance Power Systems.   Laid out in carefully calculated looping pathways to ensure even heat distribution, this network of tubing is part of a hydronic radiant floor heating system. Come late fall and cooler temperatures, hot water will be pumped and circulated through this tubing, and the floor will essentially become one large radiator, warming the surface of objects in ...
