I would assume New Belgium is laying the groundwork (brand locality/distribution channel) for when they open their new facility in Asheville NC. As for Fat Tire, not one of my favorites it tastes "rusty" to me, somthing in the profile just does not work with my palet.
So true, I spend 2-3 days in Asheville ever month or so, and I enjoy my time there more each visit. Quite a bit to do around the "beer city". My favorite finds thus far is Pisgah Brewing and Wicked Weed Brewing. Looking forward to fishing there in the spring for the first time.
Wicked weed is supd to be great. Client if mine just sold them a niche of coffee he roasts for a stout, I think. Visiting myself in a couple months.

I have met a couple of the of the owners and the bar manager (Greg)they appear to have a good formula.The staff is energetic, knowledgeable and easy on the eyes. When I visit during the week and have never waited less than 15 minutes for a seat at the bar.
