We made a lot of friends at the pub this year—or should we say pubs. To raise a toast to the National Park Service’s 100th anniversary, the Foundation collaborated with 17 breweries in the Asheville area to create the Find Your Pint series. With the Blue Ridge Parkway as their muse, brewers created unique beers named for overlooks, mountains, and other favorite spots on the route.
In August and September, each brewery hosted a release party or giving-back night to raise funds to support our mission. Fans logged their beer journey with a special Parkway Beer Passport, collecting stickers at each brewery. The series culminated in a celebration at New Belgium Brewing’s new campus.
We’d like to thank the participating breweries that highlighted the community’s special bond with the Parkway: Asheville Brewing Company, Blue Ghost Brewing, Boojum Brewing, Burial Beer, Catawba Brewing, Green Man Brewery, Highland Brewing, Hi-Wire Brewing, Innovation Brewing, Lookout Brewing, New Belgium Brewing, Pisgah Brewing, Sierra Nevada Brewing, Sweeten Creek Brewing, Thirsty Monk, Twin Leaf Brewery, and Wicked Weed Brewing.
