Craft Centric’s in-house brewery Fermented Nonsense, will be releasing two new beers in the coming week. Yass Kween Cherry Lime Wheat Beer will be released Tuesday June 11th in time for our Broad City Trivia night. Beauty in the Rains That I See Amber Ale will be released Tuesday June 18th in time for our The Office trivia night.

“Yas Kween” - Cherry Lime Wheat - 5.2% ABV - A perfect summer beer, this wheat beer was brewed with cherry juice and fresh lime zest. It’s easy drinking and with a refreshing slight tartness. You won’t be able to help letting out a “yas kween” after taking a sip.

“Beauty in the Rains That I See” - Amber Ale - 5.1% ABV - This beer was inspired by a Marcus King Band song called Autumn Rains. The fitting lyrics are: “'Cause they don't see the beauty in the rains that I see, amber ale, sweet bud and sunshine”. The beer was brewed with flaked wheat, premium 2-Row, crystal malt, and dry hopped with Cascade, Citra, and Mosaic hops.

“It’s hard to keep up with demand on our small system,” says owner Matt Vaughan, “so we are excited to have two new beers coming out in back to back weeks. Definitely come give them a try while you can!”

About Craft Centric:
Craft Centric Taproom & Bottleshop was voted best North Carolina beer bar by the Brewer’s Association in 2018 and 2019. They have 30 taps that include one cider, one ginger beer, and two wine options. They also carry packaged beer to drink on premise or to-go. Both draft and package selections include some of the best beer to be had both locally and internationally.

Craft Centric was founded in 2017 by Matt Vaughan who opened it as a place for the community to gather and appreciate beer. Both the geek & beer geek parts of Matt are apparent in the store with the Star Wars & Game of Thrones decor and the carefully curated beer selection. In August of 2018, Matt and brewer Josh Austin started Fermented Nonsense Brewing in the back office of Craft Centric. Although it’s Asheville’s smallest brewery, Fermented Nonsense focuses on making beer with big flavor as well as fun and interesting ingredients.

 

Mark your calendar for Asheville's Beer City Festival 2019!

 

Over 70 WNC breweries, live music, food, and fun will make the Rodger McGuire Green the place to be on Saturday, June 1. It's all happening from noon until 5:00. Get your tickets while they are still available. 

 

Located in Roger McGuire Park -- designated by the city as Asheville's Front Porch -- this beer festival is the capstone event of Asheville Beer Week, an annual celebration of all things WNC craft beer. To commemorate the 10th year, BCF is taking a fresh, new approach to the average beer fest. Beer City Festival is partnering with Asheville Van Life - who host the largest van rally on the continent - to throw Asheville’s largest lawn party. The vans will serve as "tour-able" pouring stations, with breweries partnering with attending van lifers. Expect light, refreshing summer seasonals to complement the unofficial kick-off to summer party. Beer City Festival is proud to support Asheville Brewers Alliance as their nonprofit partner.

 

This year's BCF is focusing on the type of beer you want to drink when it's hot - crisp, refreshing, sessionable beer from some of the best brewers in the state.
