Asheville Brews Cruise

"Experience a taste of Asheville’s thriving local beer scene with an exclusive tour of three of our award-winning microbreweries." - http://www.brewscruise.com/asheville/

This activity will be Tuesday night starting at 6pm and leaving from the hotel. First stop will be the Asheville Pizza & Brewing Co. to sample 16-20 different beers and eat some pizza (food billed separately). Then two more stops at the French Broad Brewery and the Highland Brewing Company for more beer sampling and learning about their brewery process.

The cost will be $40/person (not including pizza). The minimum number of folks we need is 16. There is no maximum.

12 Bones BBQ Lunch Excursion

12 Bones BBQ is widely considered the best BBQ in Asheville [*]. However it is only open from 11-4, M-F. I would like to organize a lunchtime excursion via taxi or maybe hotel shuttle. According to google maps it is only a five minute drive from the hotel, so should be doable within our lunch window.

This excursion is tentatively scheduled for lunchtime on Wednesday, February 24th.

  • Jason Stirnaman (hiking, biking - don't mind the weather, lifting, cross-fitting)
