Post by: The Professor on May 03, 2012, 04:08:55 AM
Has anyone else heard the rumblings about Oskar Blues building a brewery in North Carolina?  When did this development come about?

For me Dale's Pale ale was a turning point with that awesome beer in a can. I wish them all the success in their bold move. I think now is a great time for it. Raising a glass on this one!

Brevard is about 35 miles from Asheville, but it really is not on the beaten path. It certainly was not put there for easy access to trucking routes.

We welcome all breweries, as you can tell ;)

I absolutely agree.  I love the fact they use cans because when I'm heading to medina lake to go fishin', there aren't a lot of locally available craft brews that come in cans.  And these days I'm crotchety enough to insist on craft beer when I'm fishin', even if I have to go out of my way to get it.
