EDC Arts & Culture: growing cluster

For New Belgium, many factors played into choosing to build its new east coast facility here. These included proximity to downtown Asheville, the ability for employees to bicycle or walk to work, clean water, and a collaborative, inventive community of local brewers.
 
With so many breweries, from Asheville's first–Highland Brewing Company–to the award-winning Wicked Weed Brewing and nationally renowned Sierra Nevada, the best way to see them all is by going on one of the highly popular brewery tours such as BREW-ed Brewery Tours, Asheville Brewery Tours and Asheville Brews Cruise.
