A buddy and me were trying to find the Pisgah Brewery. We were having difficulties so we stopped at this convience store to ask for directions. I went to the back to get a drink(soda) to buy while I asked for directions. Wow! I saw about 5 coolers full of beer and only two of them devoted to BMC. The other three had typical craft brew distributed in the Asheville area. They also had a small shelf of Belgiums and another shelf of room-temp craft brew. Check the dates though. I bought a Sam Adams Chocolate Boch, but later noticed it was the 2004(It was fine though). The people running the store was an elderly couple and they were the nicest people on the planet. They first looked the Pisgah Brewery up in the phone book(it's not listed). So then they called people they knew who might know where it is. We ended up with some directions, but alas, was not able to follow them. That just means on another attempt to find the Pisgah Brewery we will have to go back by the 6 Pac Smokestack. I hope the same couple is working.

6 Pac is located on US 70 about halfway between Swananoa and Black Mountain. The sign for the place is in the middle of a sort of mini strip mall but 6 Pac occupies the left end of the building.
As you walk in the cooler is to the right and a big banner announces that you can get kegged beer. As I perused the offerings it became apparent that this is a great beer store. A display contained Rodenbach, Unibroue, De Proef and several others and the cooler was slammed full of different and interesting beers. The quality seemed fine and the prices were definitely competitive if not on the inexpesive side. Walking back out the door I noticed some odd looking kegs and they were Belgian beers in sixtels that had been returned. A quick check of the Pisgah and a few other breweries websites turn out that they carry darn near everything or they will order it for you.
Take a minute, pull off I-40 and find your way here. It's certainly not a waste of time.
