We’re coming, Heart of Dixie. Five thousand eight hundred pounds of French Broad beer heading into Bessemer very very soon. Just have to pump up the tires on our wheelbarrow and make a few sandwiches.

The Magic City Brewfest falls on the same day as Asheville’s own Beer City Festival, Saturday 1 June. We’ll be there and here, handing out top-shelf beverages to beer lovers, selling t-shirts, koozies and such for gas money, discovering homecooking and road food in a gastronomic synchronicity that spans 350 statute miles, a veritable Van Allen Belt of beer, a constellation of carbonation, a subcontinent of suds.

Be there. Or here. Say hello!
