Asheville Adventure Rentals Changes Name to French Broad Outfitters

Asheville Adventure Rentals

Effective immediately Asheville Adventure Rentals will conduct business as French Broad Outfitters. In an effort to more accurately describe our services as Asheville's largest river outfitter and retail paddleshop, we feel this is an important step. With the ability to identify ourselves with the third oldest river in the world and one of Asheville's most prominent natural features we believe French Broad Outfitters is a natural fit.

Green Man Brewery Collaborates with Local Artist for Holly King Label

holly king green man brewing

Rich and decadent, Green Man Brewery’s special holiday release Holly King is back for 2015.  This celebrated Holiday Ale is aged in barrels and carefully blended to create warm bourbon notes and tasty hints of toffee, vanilla, and tobacco.  With a score of 95 on ratebeer.com, Holly King is one of Green Man’s most sought-after offerings.    

For the third release of this beer, Green Man has commissioned local artist, Rob Hunt of Forever Tattoo to design the label art. This ornate variation of the Green Man logo depicts one of the many interpretations of the Green Man in folklore. Holly King will be available in a new format this year; 12 oz. bottles in 4 packs.  

To showcase Mr. Hunt’s artistry, there will be a pre-release art event at the Satellite Gallery, 55 Broadway in Downtown Asheville on December 3rd from 5-7 pm. The opportunity to purchase a signed archival print of the label art, a taste of 2015 Holly King, Rob Hunt’s artwork on display, and light snacks will be enjoyed at the event.  The prints will be collectors items, as Green Man will collaborate with a different local artist for subsequent Holly King labels in years to come, and this event is the first of a yearly holiday tradition.

From 6-8 pm Bruisin’ Ales bottle shop, across the street from the Satellite Gallery at 66 Broadway, will be hosting a tasting of Green Man’s line up. The official bottle release for Holly King is on December 4th at retail outlets where great beer is sold.

We get to distill huge, sweeping social issues into neon body-paint and smear it on the local boogeyman. We get to unpack archives of heinous Twitter posts and explore the seedy underbelly of our own backyard Pick-Up Artist Community.
