► Set in historic buildings that once housed young forestry workers of the Civilian Conservation Corps, Burial Beer’s Forestry Camp includes a production brewery, taproom and restaurant.
► Thirsty Monk will relaunch its core lineup of Belgian-Rooted Modern Ales in 2020 with a new look and feel that brings tarot cards to life. Celebrating the creative energy and mystical spirit of Asheville, all Thirsty Monk small batch, seasonal and specialty beers will be categorized into their own style-based suits, varying in colors and patterns. These “readings” will provide collectable keepsake cards.
► H&H Distillery, known for their rum, gins and Asheville Coffee Liqueur, will debut both vodka and whisky in the coming year. The Steel Horse Whisky, made in two batches, is motorcycle-themed, incorporating a rotating barrel-aging process in barrels that are the wheels of a motorcycle skeleton. One batch will be aged for 600 “miles” and the other batch will be 3,000 “miles.”
