Asheville Gets a Little Sweeter with Opening of Nothing Bundt Cakes

As guest service representatives with Nothing Bundt Cakes bakeries in Ft. Worth, TX, Megan Herschmann and Rebekah Moody became fast friends and thought it would be fun to own a bakery together. Now, six years later, the two are thrilled about their new adventure. “We always joked about how fun it would be to own a bakery together one day,” shared Herschmann. “We can’t believe that six years later, our dream is coming true!” The two both have family in the southeast, Herschmann in Tennessee and Moody in Georgia, and they knew that Asheville would be the perfect place to be. “With our families so far away, our Nothing Bundt Cakes team became our family back in Texas,” said Moody. “Now that we have opened our own bakery, we are excited to create our new Asheville “Bundt family!”  The bakery will host a week of grand opening festivities for the community March 1-7 (details below)

Hi-Wire Brewing Announces Australian Bushfire Relief Fundraising Event

Beer is good. And beer that does good is even better. That’s why on Friday, Feb. 7, Hi-Wire Brewing is donating 100% of proceeds from every glass of Strongman Coffee Milk Stout to support the strong men and women in Australia who are working to fight fires, repair homes, heal people, and rescue wildlife from the devastating bushfires that have been raging across the continent over the past few months. Nearly 25 million acres – an area a little smaller than the state of Tennessee – have been burned and more than a billion animals have been killed in these fires, but unfortunately, they’re not yet fully extinguished. Shocked and heartbroken, Hi-Wire wanted to do its part to provide relief, so it joined forces with 10+ North American breweries for the #BEERFORBUSHFIRERELIEF event coordinated by Brunswick Beer Collective out of Australia. All four Hi-Wire Brewing taprooms – Asheville Big Top, Asheville South Slope, Durham, and Knoxville – will be participating in the event, and donations raised will be distributed evenly between the Australian Red Cross and Wildlife Victoria.
