Ashevegas Loves Sam

Dogfish Head Craft Brewed Ales sent their founder and President, Sam Calagione, to spend a few days drinking in one of the Nation’s beeriest cities [1]. A few area beer blogs have captured what happened over the weekend in words and pictures.

From the Bruisin’ Ales blog [2]:

“If you had the opportunity to meet Sam Calagione (aka, our new t-shirt model), you know what I’m talking about. He’s a class act, laid-back, funny, and clearly passionate about beer. We love that. Better yet: He LOVED Asheville. Although we had a little glitch with his flight cancelled from Charlotte to Asheville on Friday, we made it work and hope everyone was happy. The Thirsty Monk put on a killer “Brewer’s Choice” line-up of beers on Saturday, and per usual, Zambra outdid themselves again with a great brunch pairing.”

Untamed Beer has a pretty interesting post about picking Calagione up from the Asheville airpor [3]t.

“Let me tell you, I haven’t felt that much pressure driving a car since my dad was giving me my first lessons when I was 16: I’m under is a tremendous time crunch, I had never been to the Asheville airport so I didn’t exactly know where I was going, I’m going to pick up a craft brewing icon, and there are dozens of people back at the store that will be really pissed if I screw up.”

And there are a bunch of pictures taken over the weekend that are up on the official event page on facebook [4].

Sam Eats!

Looks like it was a hell of a lot of fun, drinking great beer in a great NC city!
