Field Trip to New Belgium Brewery

MARCH 8, 2017


Are you getting cabin fever yet? Well let's do a half day trip to the

New Belgium Brewing Co.

   21 Craven St.   Asheville.  

Camera's are allowed on this one and a half hour tour of  Asheville's newest brewery.   There is a 20 person limit so sign up early.

Meet at Lowes off Airport Road(19 McKenna Rd. Arden.)  Park at the lower end next to Best Buy.  We will meet at 10:15 am  and drive West on I-26 to I-240 toward Asheville.. Take the Haywood Rd. exit.   Turn right and stay on Haywood rd. until you see a sign for the brewery and turn left.  Park in the visitors parking lot at the main gate.   There is a small building  on the right as you approach the main gate.   Our tour will start there at 11:30 sharp.  

They will provide us with samples of their product but this is a photo opportunity,not just a beer tour, so even if you do not consume beer you are welcome to join in on this field trip. 

Afterwards we will stagger, just kidding, to 12 Bones BBQ.   They have moved to their new location  at 5 Foundry St, turn left on Lyman.   This is in the River Arts District where we shot graffiti on one of last years field trips. 

After lunch we can shoot this area again as it is changing fast and could soon be gone.  Afterwards we can continue to the Antique Tobacco Barn, 75 Swannanoa River Rd.,  Asheville.   Lots of cool things to soot inside and the owner told me camera's are welcome.  we will return to our cars.   This trip has been planned knowing the weather could still be a little brisk and this is why its mostly indoors so bring your flash.
