Overview

Drinking local harks back to the founding of Asheville in 1798. Whether it be moonshine or craft beer, the culture of local hooch is deeply ingrained in the mountain dwellers of Western North Carolina. Both residents and visitors alike enjoy Asheville's wealth of breweries, brewpubs, beer festivals and dedicated retailers. That enthusiasm earned the city the coveted Beer City, USA title year after year and prompted West Coast beer giants Sierra Nevada, New Belgium and Oskar Blues to establish production facilities here. Beer writer and educator Anne Fitten Glenn recounts this intoxicating history, from the suds-soaked saloons of "Hell's Half Acre" to the region's explosion into a beer Mecca.

Meet the Author

Anne Fitten Glenn first learned about craft beer when she worked for George Stranahan, the founder of Flying Dog Brewery in Woody Creek, Colorado, in the early 1990s. Her most memorable beer experience was having writer Hunter S. Thompson yell at her in the middle of the night because she'd left the cover off the Stranahans' hot tub. He was naked, and she was holding a beer. Because she and her friends had previously imbibed half a keg of Doggie Style Pale Ale, she was not as scared as she should have been.
Anne Fitten moved to Asheville in 1997, soon after the town's craft brewvival began (yes, it's a double first name). She started writing about beer and the beer business in 2006 while freelancing for both Asheville newspapers. Her regular "Brews News" column for Asheville's Mountain Xpress newsweekly debuted in 2009. Since then, she s written articles for the national Brewers Association's online magazine. Her online alter ego, Brewgasm, blogs, tweets and Facebooks obsessively about all things beer.

With support from the Asheville Brewers Alliance, Anne Fitten developed and regularly teaches Beer 101 classes for both restaurant industry workers and the beer-loving public. She also regularly speaks at conferences and special events and on panels about the world's favorite alcoholic beverage. She s a member of the North American Guild of Beer Writers, the Pink Boots Society and the North Carolina Writers' Network. She serves on the organizing committees for both Asheville Beer Week and North Carolina Beer Month and on the North Carolina Brewers Cup Board of Advisors.

    Being a craft brewer relatively new to this scene, I love this book.
    I found this to be a highly entertaining read and a well-informed and balanced historical resource on the Western North Carolina region's "all things beer".

    If you care about such things, you will thank God for Anne Fitten Glenn's unique capabilities, intelligent passion, and her contributions to the arts.  
    Yes, "the arts"!  One of the largest enclaves of artists and craftsmen in the USA (that is, the region surrounding Asheville) now benefits from artisan brewing (and distilling) as a new addition to its internationally acclaimed artist community.
    Anne presents this fascinating progression from a perspective that is very current, well-researched, and enjoyably well-written.  
    The art world thanks you, Anne!
