Haw Creek Location:

The Outpost

is a craft beer bar and bottleshop located in East Asheville’s Haw Creek neighborhood. Rumor has it that the building The Outpost was once home to a stop on The Pony Express, hence its name. It has the charm and feels of an old hardware store and that old-world mercantile vibe is still alive and well. 

The Outpost is a neighborhood beer bar where you can sip and shop. There are eight taps of draft beer and a more extensive package list than in our other locations. Pick out a brew and browse the shelves and coolers full of hard-to-find hype beer and breweries, wine, mead, cider, and seltzer. 

If you’re an Asheville local and frequent our West Asheville location, The Outpost offers a different selection and experience while maintaining our sophisticated, fun, and unique approach to craft beer.

Let the mellow sounds and inviting vibes sail you away at Yacht Rock Zwanze Day at The Whale, Saturday, Sept 24th at 11 am.

Zwanze 2022 pours will be available to purchase starting at 11 am and poured right before 3pm. There are only 110 total pours available for purchase of the Zwanze 2022. They will be sold on a first-come-first-served basis.

Kipper Schauer, Badass DJ extraordinaire will be here to send you on your way with the smoothest yacht rock classics.

WHAT IS ZWANZE DAY?
(via Our Tasty Travels) Zwanze day is an annual event that Cantillon holds, in which they brew a small batch of experimental beer and offer it for sale in a select group of pubs around the world.  This beer is usually a different style each year and is something other than a traditional Cantillon lambic.  This allows the brewers to experiment and take part in the fun, semi-sarcastic humor of Brussels, which is the true meaning of the word zwanze.

Save the date! We can’t wait to see you. Prost!
