CNN/Eatocracy Best of 2012 Beer: Wedge Brewery

  1. Thought this was pretty cool - Wedge Brewery in Asheville (a favorite of mine) made a best of 2012 list on CNN with their Vadim Bora Raspberry Imperial Stout, which is amazingly tasty! One of the few fruit stouts that I think have the beer and fruit perfectly integrated.

    The rest of the list is quite interesting as well, with some BA standards on there.

    Awesome! By far my favorite stop in Asheville.
  3. Agreed, best beer we had in Asheville, I was a bit disappointed in Asheville, overall. Wedge was good, Highland and Pisgah are good, but not really "in" Asheville. Everything else we had in the city was just OK, IMO.

  4. I hear you on Asheville as far as pure beer quality. It's generally "good" across the board, with a pocket here and there of awesome. To me, the city is more than just a sum of its parts; the beer culture and availability, mountain setting, focus on the local and independent, great dining and arts scenes, and general vibe just add up to make one hell of a place. The fact that Olde Hickory is on the drive up doesn't hurt either!

  5. And don't forget Catawba Valley Brewing Co., which is even closer!

  6. I'm ashamed to say I haven't stopped in there yet... Tried their barrel aged stout at Appalachian Vintners and was quite impressed though! Looks like another trip down I40 is in the cards.
