WHY I WAITED IN LINE FOR 2 1/2 HOURS FOR CRAFT BEER

  1. I live in Asheville, NC (sometimes known as Beer City, USA) 🍺
    See list for more fall pics FALL IN ASHEVILLE, NC
  2. Home of Highland Brewing
  3. This is the weekend of the release of Highland's Cold Mountain Winter Ale
    Released annually in November and there is a limited amount of this craft beer for purchase
  4. So I waited in line
    Even brought a book (just happens to be the book I'm reading at the moment) and someone else brought their guitar so that was nice
  5. And waited...with these lovely people
  6. Yes! 9th in line
    Also, telling myself "this is a bit ridiculous!" No it's not!
  7. That's right, you get that merch ready
  8. Bring out those bottles
    20 minutes left
  9. And...Purchase!
  10. Look how pretty it all looks in my trunk
    Yes, I actually took the time to take this photograph 🙈
  11. Time for draft pour tasting
    From the Coconut Cold Mountain Ale cask
  12. And another specialty cask is tapped
    Orange peel & Madagascar vanilla Cold Mountain Ale
  13. Heading home!
    Standing in line for beer is EXHAUSTING! Thanks for a lovely day Asheville! 😉
