    No Zebulon? and you include taprooms and distilleries in a brewery list? #fail

    • ashevilleblog@gmail.com'

      Sorry for the oversight, we’ve included Zebulon. I’m sure you can understand that with the massive amount of breweries in the area, its easy to accidentally leave out one or two with no ill intent.

      With the exception of Pour Taproom which is not a brewery, all the rest of the listings on this page brew on site. In the future, how about some kindness and understanding towards an entity that only aspires to help promote your business, free of charge to you?

      • mweaverlyter3489@gmail.com'

        Seriously – “#fail” is quite rude when this list is to help drive business to these breweries essentially providing them with free advertising. Maybe next time the complainer will be more diplomatic and ask quietly behind the scenes for the list to be updated and not get nasty with a public comment.
