Catawba Brewing Company: Another Look

Barrels at Catawba Brewing Co

My fellow beer blogger, Mia Pedersen, began our series with her grand opening day assessment of the new Catawba Brewery on Asheville's “South Slope” (http://ashevilleblog.com/a-taste-of-catawbas-new-brewery/).  Our intent is to provide friendly beer banter, fully expecting that the weekly beer world perspectives of a female in her early twenties and this “ol' man” might not always mesh.  We'll provide insight to various beer-related fests and events, as well as reviewing the brews we sample.  We hope you enjoy our differences as we both report on Asheville's ever-exciting craft beer news, sometimes lauding great praise while at other times taking-to-task those who deserve it.
