It says bock but it's an "Imperial Helles Lager".  The barleywine is brewed with 100% American cascade hops.  Barleywine in mid-July and Oak-aged Bigfoot blended with fresh Pale Ale will be in mid-October.

Actually the last one is Oak-Aged Bigfoot, Celebration and fresh Pale Ale, then dry-hopped.

Celebration, Tumbler, Glissade and Summerfest are considered seasonals.  Bigfoot is a "limited selections".  If only Bigfoot was in 12-packs like seasonals.

Has anyone heard anything about or had the chance to try Sierra Nevada Ruthless Rye IPA? Sounds awesome, but I had never heard of it until one of my local stores posted it as a recent arrival on their Facebook page.

I doubt anyone has tried it.  It is a brand new brand.  Just landed in GA today as well it appears.  Only 11 reviews as of right now on the other site (4.02/5) and the oldest one is 12/30/2011

Picked up a twelve pack of Ruthless Rye last night. Very good stuff. Nice rye spiciness, great malt body and very classic Sierra Nevada hop flavor. The label is pretty cool, too.  :ale:

Is Celebration still all over there?  It is here.  My guess is they are holding out on the Rye until Celebration is gone.  Just a guess though. :shrug:

Looks like the Asheville area has won out for the Sierra Nevada east coast location.  That makes the brewing scene a lot bigger than it already was.  There is still a lot of belief that New Belgium picks Asheville for its east coast home too.

Poor Tennessee.  Even though they have been out of the running for a while, I was really hoping they would land it when Sierra Nevada first started poking around. 

The good news is that it gives us another spot to hit up on Asheville trips.  Cannot wait until that brewery is open.   :excited:

I am excited for it as well.  I thought I might plan my next trip to Asheville for shortly after it opened.  Then I read an article that said that might take until early 2014  :o:

I know building a huge brewery can not happen overnight, but I was shocked to see that it would take 2 years.

Yeah.  I guess it makes sense since it will have a 300,000 barrel capacity "with room to grow".   :blink:  Things going to be massive.  Plus they have the restaurant to build and whatnot.  It will be worth the wait.   :thumbup:

Yes, that is definitely massive so it makes sense.  It sounded like the restaurant would not be part of the 2014 date.  It sounded like it would be a later addition.  At least there are other great places to eat in Asheville already.

Depends on production I am sure, but Chicago is not really in the middle.  700 miles from Asheville versus over 2k to Chico.

This is true.  Its going to tough to not go every night to eat at that Tapas place I was at last time I was there.  F'n delicious although an expensive experience.  Lots of great food in that town.   :thumbup:

That could work.  We do not even need someone to have a place there.  We can just hang out on the grass in front of the bank downtown with all the hippies.

I would not say it scared me, but it does make for an uneasy experience using that ATM.  Just way too many people too close to you for it to fit in the normal watch over your shoulder at the ATM frame of mind.  Other than that, I found it amusing that they were hanging out downtown on one of the few patches of grass along that street.

Same goes for me.  In fact I almost exclusively use plastic and never go to any ATM, but when you suddenly find out that Pisgah is cash only and you are about to head there, you do what you have to do :)

Last time we were there, we left the Thirsty Monk at close and walked through that plaza across the street where the road forks (may be the same place you are talking about Donnie), and it was jam packed with camped out hippies and wayward children as Tara called them.  That would make a fine spot for the TBS crowd to invade, pilfer, sanitize, and set up tents.   :thumbup:

You are talking about where College and Patton meet.  I think the bank is on Broadway in between Barley's and Bruisin' Ales, but I am not 100% sure.  It really stands out because most of the businesses go right up to the sidewalk.  There is one patch of grass in front of this bank that sits back a bit and it is infested with hippies in the summer.

I am sure there are multiple areas that smell a patchouli and are covered by hippies though.  It is Asheville after all :)

Patton and College it is.  Its that little triangle between the streets.  It is deceptive because trees surround that entire area so you can't see in, and the crosswalks push you to walk through that spot.  Then you get in there and are stumbling over all the passed out hippies.

I know the exact spot you are talking about as well.  There was an alternative lifestyles festival in town when we were there last, and I figured they were just hanging out there because that was the edge of where they roped off the streets.  Didn't realize that was a regular spot for squatters.  Crazy.
