Back in December we set some pretty ambitious goals at beer up with our New Beer's Resolutions list. Looking at the list now, it was pretty ambitious and I am feeling a bit dejected. However one venue that did not end up on my list in Asheville NC. I have always wanted to head out that way as it is home to numerous breweries we have featured before including Sierra Nevada, Catawba and Wicked Weed for its Dark Arts Release Party to name a few. So it was bittersweet news when I found out that on the weekend we are heading to Asheville with some beer friends, some of my other beer buddies are having a bar crawl in Richmond VA. While I would love to be in two places at once, a weekend in Asheville was too hard to pass up. Luckily, through the miracle of technology, we can follow both bar crawls in real time through their untapped feeds. This way our readers can see what local beers are being consumed and get up to the minute ratings and reviews. If you ever wanted to head to Richmond or Asheville, this is a great opportunity to see some of the bars and breweries worth visiting as our beer savants give you a virtual brew tour throughout the day. As always feel free to chime in with comments below. Cheers!

Head to the Funkatorium to get your hands on our annual release of Dark Arts Tequila Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout with Brett, and our Dark Arts Espresso. We will be celebrating these beers from 5pm-1am with live gypsy-swing music, costumes, guest taps pouring rare barrel-aged beers, and tapas plates. Come in costume, drink, dance and revel in the darkness!
Ah, where has the time gone? Brothers Craft Brewing opened in December of 2012, we’re coming up on our four year anniversary, and we’ve worked through an incredible amount of hurdles and delivered some great beers. We know though that “perfection is a moving target” and true to that, we are always working towards that ultimate goal. 2016 saw a more stable production line-up of beers and some really interesting one-off hoppy (and not) releases. We switched our house yeast and have spent the year fine tuning how it behaves and learning just what we can make it do. The same yeast produced 2015 Resolute (and 2016) and Foreign Waters! We’ve been able tweak a bunch of our processes and are continuing to learn more from titans of the craft industry and our fellow local brewers.
