Dear friends, I met Brian Ivey and Clair Greear at Catawba Brewing, in Asheville’s South Slope, a family owned craft brewery surrounded by cool urban art. This was an excellent day to be introduced to the great selection of beers made at Catawba Brewing and to discover their inclination for exploring exotic flavors and styles.

The beer selection is awesome, exotic, and unique. They have so many interesting flavors.They even have something to satisfy your childhood nostalgia,a PB&J flavored Brown Ale. Another really popular beer is the White Zombie, a great tasting white ale

I made a point to try and found that I loved an awesome Mexican style lager called the “CAROLINA DEL NORTE,” a beer they produce only seasonally.


The folks at Catawba Brewing seem to have athing for Latino flavor and tomorrow, Thursday  7/26/18, Catawba releases a Small Breakfast Stout, made with cacao beans from Central America and coffee beans from South America.

Also, this spring  they created a limited edition IPA for Asheville Beer Week made in collaboration with CERVEZA BEATA from BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA.
