CATAWBA BREWING CO.
It all began with a Christmas gift in 1994. Billy Pyatt, a notoriously hard guy to buy presents for, fell in love with the carboys, pots, hydrometers, grains, hops, chemistry, and physics involved in brewing. His brother, Scott, fell right in with him. Their love became an obsession that could only be resolved by going pro – not an easy thing to do in 1999!
Fast forward to the present, we’ve grown organically into a 30 barrel Sprinkman brewhouse that is shinier than we ever imagined during those humble beginnings. The production facility/tasting room is in downtown Morganton where the 30bbl brewhouse makes the 9 flagship beers. Asheville is home to the second tasting room and brewery in the South Slope area where a 7-bbl brewery makes small batches, and where our barrel aging program is housed. Asheville’s Biltmore Village also has a conveniently located tasting room. Our third brewery, will open in early 2017 in the Plaza-Midwood area of Charlotte and will feature a 10-bbl brewery, tasting room, and magnificent city views. Core beers include: White Zombie White Ale, Farmer Ted’s Cream Ale and Mother Trucker Pale Ale.
Made according to the Belgian Witbier tradition, of using unmalted wheat to create the light body and white sheen, additions of coriander and orange peel give Zombie a fruity and spicy character, while the hops are subtle and lightly detected. ABV 5.1%, SRM 3, IBU 7
