Over 7,000 brewing industry professionals gathered in Denver April 8-11 for the 2014 Craft Brewers Conference and World Beer Cup, sometimes referred to as the Olympics of Beer. The week was packed with seminars, events, tastings and an awards ceremony that placed some of North Carolina’s breweries among the best in the world.
Pisgah Brewing Co. has made the decision to launch Pisgah Pale in cans, with one or two additional styles likely to be added down the road. The first Pisgah cans should be available at limited locations around town next week.
