To mark its 20th anniversary, family-owned Catawba Brewing Co. will celebrate with Asheville for an entire week. The emerald-anniversary excitement will kick off on July 15 with a “Find Green, Get Green” gift card promotion. On each day (July 15-19) leading up to the anniversary bash, both Asheville tasting rooms (Biltmore Village and South Slope) will randomly hide one pint glass with an emerald-green band around it in the day’s serving glassware. The lucky person to be served the emerald glass “gets green”—a $20 gift Catawba Brewing gift card. Catawba will cap off the week on July 20 with an all-day party at its South Slope location, replete with four anniversary beer releases; onsite T-shirt printing; multiple bands; Blind Pig bites and Three Eggs Cakery of Asheville sweet treats. The guest who is served the emerald glass during the South Slope anniversary party will receive a $200 gift card. There will also be an anniversary party at the Biltmore Village tasting room from 2-10 p.m.
