    I'm curious if any of the fine breweries in Asheville brew a pilsner. I will be visiting next week and plan to hit several local breweries with a friend who really loves a good pilsner. Suggestions?

    Looks like Pisgah has a well rated one, can't remember if I've tried it before or not. Olde Hickory makes an imperial pilsner in chardonay barrels Eiraphiotes http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/7753/78010 and Southern Cross a german pilsner http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/7753/76630 which I love. Olde Hickory isn't in Asheville but is close and does see distribution there. Eiraphiotes can be found in bottles and maybe on tap, and Southern Cross is only on tap so far.
