WNC breweries to release collaboration beer ‘Ryeway 74’

All five Western North Carolina microbreweries west of Asheville collaborated on a craft beer that will be simultaneously released at 6 p.m. Friday, April 12, at each establishment.

Bear Waters Brewing (Waynesville), Frog Level Brewing (Waynesville), Heinzelmannchen Brewery (Sylva), Nantahala Brewing (Bryson City) and Tipping Point Brewing (Waynesville) have created “Ryeway 74.” The beer is a smooth red ale with spicy flavors balanced with hoppy and unique malty notes. It was developed with heirloom barley and rye malt from Riverbend Malting in Asheville.

Participating breweries will have the ale available by the sample, pint or growler.
