Last week I had the great opportunity to interview Julie Atallah from Bruisin’ Ales in Asheville. We had a great time talking about how Julie and her husband Jason got into craft beer and started Bruisin’ Ales.
We also talk about the big beer event coming up in Asheville, Dogfish Head Mountain Weekend, when Sam Calagione will be in town for several events from May 15-17. There are several events going on that weekend, so you definitely need to check it out.
Julie busted out some rare and delicious samples from her store for us to taste while we chatted: Baird Shizuoka Natsumikan Ale, Pisgah Vortex I Triple IPA, and De Stuise Black Albert. Amazing stuff.
The video is about 34 minutes, so grab a beer and sit back. We had a lot of fun, and I hope you do too.
Stay tuned later this week. After our interview and sampling at the store, Julie was kind enough to take us on a little brewery tour of Asheville. We were able to talk to Dave Quinn from Pisgah Brewing, then we stopped in at Green Man, French Broad and The Wedge. I’m going to put us separate posts for each stop.
What an awesome day. Thanks again, Julie!
