May 28th, 2017 – Asheville – North Carolina

Asheville, NC is a beautiful small city in the Blue Ridge Mountains.  It is not even in the top 300 in the US as far as population.  Who knew that the number 3 and 4 craft beer companies had breweries here?  Thanks to Google – we did.  We went with our daughter and her husband to both of them.  Sierra Nevada has a beautiful complex – the drive into it is like driving into a mansion.  They have a restaurant that serves small plates and the food was very good.  We like having a continual parade of food that comes out as it is ready.  New Belgium is more about the beer.  They had a food truck, but we were stuffed.  It was Beer Week in Asheville, so both places were quite crowded.   Overall, between the breweries we tried 20 different beers.  We are already planning another trip for the next time we are in the area.

    Hey you two – are you beer-crazy or what? Isn’t Asheville where the mansion is? Or have you seen it already and beer was next on your list of things to do. It does sound like it was a lot of fun. Was your designated driver bummed?

    Waiting breathlessly to see your little boy.

    Love you all,
