Brewgasm goes big: Xpress beer writer moves to Bluer pastures

Anne-Fitten “Brewgasm” Glenn, Xpress's beer columnist, is moving on to more beer-filled pastures. She's officially taken up with Oskar Blues brewery in Brevard, where she'll be doing marketing work.

Sadly for Xpress, Glenn's new job means she won't continue to write her bi-weekly “Brews News” column. Still, you can expect to see her freelance stories here from time to time.

If you're missing Brewgasm, don't worry. She's easy to find around Asheville. She frequently holds author events for her new book, Asheville Beer: An Intoxicating History of Mountain Brewing. You can also find her on New Year's Eve at Oskar Blues' grand opening celebration. She's helping organize the big shindig, complete with live music, food trucks and free trolley rides from Asheville to Brevard, she says.
