WeldWerks Hits The Whale
12:00 PM - 10:00 PM | West Asheville, NC
Thursday, January 19, 2023
One of our favorite Colorado breweries has made the journey across mountains and plains, all the way to The Whale. We’ll be featuring a selection of their quality draft pours and will have some cans to go.
WeldWerks Brewing started like many other successful businesses: in a garage. Neil Fisher (co-founder and head brewer) began home brewing with friends at his home in 2009, and over the next few years, a full roster of nearly 2 dozen different colorful characters would come around once a month to brew, learn and enjoy one another’s company.
Fast forward a few years to the 2014 Big Beers, Belgians and Barleywines festival, held at the time in Vail, CO, which is home to one of the nation’s best home brew competitions. A soft agreement was made in advance that if Neil was able to bring home a medal at this prestigious competition, he would consider opening a brewery. Well, as it happened, he didn’t win a medal – he won two. That informal handshake between friends quickly turned into a business plan and, 11 months later, the first beers were poured at WeldWerks Brewing in Greeley, CO.
Soon after that…they were named the best brewery in the US by USA Today. So, come see for yourself.
