We're ready to leave the cold behind and welcome the sun back to the mountains with the release of Wanderlush, our seasonal hazy adventure ale!

Double dry hopped and elevated by notes of melon, pineapple, and fresh squeezed orange juice, this hazy IPA is the perfect companion to all your summer wanderings.

Come on out to the brewery and help us kick-off a season of adventure! Our pals from Asheville Van Life will be showing off their amazing vans to give you a little taste of their off the grid lifestyles.

The Saylor Brothers will be belting out some Asheville-inspired bluegrass tunes from 6-8pm and then we'll dance off all of those beer calories at the March edition of our First Friday Dance Party from 8-11 pm.
(Dance party is 21+)

And as always, $1 from every pour of this seasonal will go to the Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy and their work to preserve this unbelievable place where we live and brew.

@ Crowne Plaza Hotel and Resort Asheville

An estimated 12,000 wings will be prepared and served during the ninth annual Asheville Wing War, says Kelly Denson, the event’s executive producer. As in years past, 12 local restaurants will compete, creating two styles of wings — traditional and specialty.

“We spent a lot of time eating chicken wings in various places around town to make sure we found the absolute best,” Denson says. “So when people come to the event, they know they’re experiencing the best hot wings that Asheville has to offer.”

General admission is $15. During the event, ticket holders can purchase wings for $1 apiece. Beer will also be available for purchase. VIP tickets are $50 and include wing samples, unlimited beer, early admission and a pint glass.

Gregson will be back this year with Black Bear BBQ, competing against the Barrelhouse, Blue Dream Curry, Brinehaus Meat + Provisions, Dreadlife Kitchen, Gullah Q Lowcountry BBQ, The Malvern, The Montford Deli, Overlook Restaurant at Crown Plaza, Post 25 Kitchen & Lounge, Stable Cafe at Biltmore Estate and Thirsty Monk Biltmore Park.

The Asheville Wing War runs 1-5 p.m. Sunday, March 8, at the Expo Center at the Asheville Crowne Plaza, 1 Resort Drive. To purchase tickets, visit avl.mx/6yn.
