We’re proud supporters of the Save The French Broad campaign, so for this week’s tasting, Sweetwater Brewing will be in the house. All we ask is a $5 donation to the Campaign. More about Save The French Broad: “Get ready for the Save the French Broad Raft Race this summer, but make sure to stop by one of our great partners to buy a $1,$5, or $10 fish. All the money will go build the French Broad River Paddle Trail. The paddle trail will link over 140 miles of the French Broad River with campsites and additional access points.”
Beers for tasting:
Waterkeeper Hefeweizen: “Perfect for a float down the Hooch or just grillin’ in the backyard, Waterkeeper Hefeweizen is our go to summer brew. Picks up with notes of banana and clove and light enough to drink all day. … Waterkeeper Hefeweizen continues our mission to raise awareness for Waterkeepers and assist them in their fight to preserve our rivers, streams, and coastlines.
