Brewing for Greenways

Brewing for Greenways

Brewing for Greenways is an on-going, multi-brewery effort to raise money and awareness for the planned public greenway and trail network that will connect Buncombe County. Proceeds from the collaborations will benefit Friends of Connect Buncombe, which supports the implementation of the city and county trails and greenways plans to develop a system of connected pedestrian and bike pathways for public use.

Highland Brewing Company and New Belgium, catalyzed this effort in June of 2015 by creating the first collaboration connector beer and reaching out to other breweries to cointinue the efforts.  “We envision a day when we can walk or bike to great areas of Asheville, giving residents and guests access to healthy lifestyles and safe passage to jobs and local businesses.  It’s a long process but we can start it in this special way.” Leah Wong Ashburn, Highland Brewing President.
