From the Tap!

Crisp leaves crunching underfoot, cool breezes giving way to downright cold days that
make fire-pits officially the best thing ever - this is where we’re at. Fall as we envision it is finally
here and Winter as we know it isn’t far off, and our little slice of heaven has come alive. What a
better time to be out and about than when the leaves are changing colors, when the sun isn’t
sweltering, and when the varieties of beers on tap seems to reach its zenith. Linus might be
waiting for the return of the Great Pumpkin, but Charlie Brown, I’m here to tell you that I’ve been
waiting on the return of the Great Stouts and I don’t need to spend all night in a pumpkin patch
for that!
In this issue you will find all sorts of great things going on for Fall & Winter. Don’t let the
cooler temps keep you from seeking out some tasty fun - bundle up a little and go enjoy what
Appalachia has to offer - be it changing leaves, delicious comfort foods, or tasty brews & good
tunes near a warm fire-pit.

From The Tap - September/October Issue

It starts with nights that have begun getting cooler. When bonfires beckon for their
warmth as much as their calming beauty; ciders start calling to you like a grown-up version of
the apple on Teacher’s desk and the time of stouts start whispering their return. Our worship of
the big yellow ball in the sky has been replaced by the big orange gourd on the ground (and, of
course, the promise of candy!!) and our summer gear is tucked away while jeans, hoodies and
handmade knits get donned with delight. Football is in the air and team spirit is at a fever pitch
... even those who aren’t fans take part in the joys of tailgating: the food and drinks, the
camaraderie - punctuated with lots of sideline coaching and yelling - then hopefully followed up
with high fives and cheers.
Fall is here and we are ready for it. We’ve got the comfort foods and the seasonal brews
for you. With the leaves changing and beginning to fall, and the temps finally bearable, be
ready to hang outside and enjoy the splendor that is the Applachian mountains - we’ve got a
bunch of places that will form the perfect backdrop for that. So get comfy and get ready and
read on.

Summertime is finally here.  In fact, it is so summertime out that I am writing this while sitting poolside, enjoying a cocktail and good tunes.  Thank you technology!  Summer is that time of year to hit the road, see the sites, and just do all the things.  Life is calling, and we must go.  Use this issue of Appalachian Hub to help you plan a trip .. or two or three!  We’ve got festivals coming up and we’ve got some sweet b&bs for you to stay in.  We’re gonna tell you about the breweries that are going to give you the perfect excuse for a quick day trip (trust us, it is too pretty to stay at home!) and great eats along the way.  And then, when you are back home, it is time to indulge in those summer nights .. which, of course, you just read with John Travolta’s high notes playing in your head, right?  Cookouts and barbecues with friends, this is what growlers and crowlers were made for.  So, get your playlist ready, your sunscreen packed, and let’s head out there!

Ahh, it is getting to be one of the best times of year around here: late enough into Spring to not suddenly snow or freeze, early enough into Summer that we’re not melting in the heat.  It is that time of year when our windows are open and the AC isn’t yet on.  When we’re all looking to get outside to admire the gorgeous blooms and breathe the fresh air; when we suddenly really appreciate the wonderful outdoor spaces and views at our favorite venues, and the delicious foods on hand at the food trucks they have there.  On the other hand, maybe you have your own perfect view and you’ve grabbed a crowler from a local brewery and are sharing it with friends there.  Or perhaps you’re enjoying a local craft brew on tap at a baseball game.  Maybe you’re taking advantage of the weather to visit one of our amazing wineries, cideries, or distilleries.  Whatever your ideal Spring day is, we hope you’ve filled it with friends and tasty, locally sourced drinks.  Our team will be out and about, celebrating with you, and helping you begin dreaming of summer adventures not far ahead.

Spring is right around the corner! It’s time to say goodbye for another year to big coats, sweaters, snow, hot cocoa, and all those traditional winter-time craft beers!  As this world we’re on rocks on its axis, it’s time for everyone to rock their new spring wardrobes while sampling all the lighter, fruitier craft beers at their favorite breweries!  Cabin fever is over, folks.  Lets all get out there, greet the sun, frolic in the explosion of color, and celebrate community.  After a super-fun afternoon of baseball or hiking, be sure to gather with friends at your favorite brewery from amazing music, fun and games, scrumptious food-truck delicacies, and of course – delicious craft beer!  And Don’t forget…St. Patrick’s Day is coming soon. 
On that day you must be seen
All dressed up and glittering green
While drinkin’ yer draft on the brewery scene!

All of us here at Brew Hub magazine would like to wish all of you a very Happy Holiday Season.  May it be filled with family, friends, love, and laughter.  But most of all, may your glasses be filled with all the delicious, local craft beers, brewed by those who are your own.  At a time of year when charitable thoughts turn toward good will, may the special sense of community to be found in your local craft breweries season your holidays with special feelings of belonging and togetherness.  As you raise your glasses and greet the new year, please be safe and drink responsibly.

All good things must come to an end…but that doesn’t mean there can’t be another good thing about to begin!  It’s time to put away the bathing suits, shorts, and T-Shirts.  Another summer has passed.  All the flowers have bloomed.  The bees and butterflies have done their jobs, and seeds will soon find snuggly places in the earth to wait until the warmth returns.  Beaches, barbeques, and backyard shenanigans will have to wait till next year.  No more lawn mowing.  The flowerbeds will wait till Spring.  The land is getting ready to sleep.
But before that happens, the trees will capture sunsets in their leaves.  The air will invigorate the heat-weary; heavy with the smell of crackling fireplaces coming to life.  Farmers begin to harvest, and the networks prepare to entertain us anew.  We’ll all pull out our cozy, cool-weather couture, and make ready for the brisk, beautiful Fall. 
With all the big, winter-time events still distant on the horizon, Fall is a time for fun and coming together.  Little goblins, heroes and pretty, pretty princesses can’t wait to gather their Halloween goodies.  Meanwhile, the bigger folk can’t wait to taste the delicious, new seasonal beers dreamed up at their local craft breweries!  Let the kids have Halloween.  For beer lovers, it’s time for Oktoberfest!  Rich Marzen lagers have been aging since Spring, just waiting to be released from their barrels.  Beer lovers will also have a variety of pumpkin brews to sample, because, why not?  Everyone else is doing it!  The robust colors of Autumn will pour from the taps in delicious ambers, malty porters, nutty browns, and red ales.  
Who needs summer when you can gather around the brewery firepit with a glass of your favorite beer while listening to amazing, local musicians!  Or, gather inside for more music, as well as incredible food from the best cooks and chefs on four wheels! 
Summer may have rung the bell for last-call on some activities, but there’s never a last-call for fun!  In addition to all the great, seasonal beers, the fantastic local music, and the delicious food-tuck cuisine, your local craft breweries are sure to keep it rockin’ with special events, games, weekly activities, and more!
