We’re keeping it local this week with a Pisgah Brewing flight of Fall seasonals. Drop in tomorrow between 5:00-7:00 p.m. for these treats. Not a trick!

LEAF Amber: “This seasonably brewed Amber ale exudes a rich, toasted flavor from a base of four organic malts with a crisp hop finish brought on by the edition of Nugget, Centennial, and Mt.Hood hops.  Our Amber ale is brewed bi-annually to coincide with the LEAF festivals in Black Mountain, NC.  10% of all proceeds go to LEAF in Schools and Streets.  Treat yourself and your community.”

Pumpkin Ale: “How can it be a pumpkin beer with no pumpkins? It can’t.  Some do use real pumpkins, some don’t. We’re doers. Serious doers, actually. With over 900 lbs of fresh roasted pumpkins provided by our friends at New Sprout Farms this is a REAL Pumpkin Ale.”

Chocolate Stout: “An array of dark malts and a heaping dose of cocoa nibs from French Broad Chocolate Lounge make this chocolate stout an instant classic.  Aged on nibs for a number of weeks, this beer displays the gentle alchemy of chocolate and malted barley. FBCL’s chocolate maker hand-sorted, roasted, cracked, & winnowed beans from the La Red Guaconejo cooperative of the Dominican Republic.”

Vortex I Triple Pale: “The hoppiest beer in Buncombe County! With over 3.5 grams of four distinct varieties of super high alpha hops per glass, lupulin lovers rejoice!”
