Enter to win a $25.00 gift card Pack’s Tavern.
Pack’s Tavern initiated restoration efforts of the Hayes-Hopson building in Downtown Asheville in the summer of 2009. Much care was taken to expose the original brick, original tongue and groove ceiling and wood trusses, and to uncover the 100-year-old flooring. Today, you’ll find a tavern beautifully restored to Prohibition-Era grandeur.
Pack’s Tavern offers outstanding service, the best drinks in town, and a large eclectic menu of over 60 items; everything from signature salads to hand-pattied burgers, from wonderful appetizers to fresh cut steaks and seafood in a friendly, hospitable atmosphere. All to be enjoyed in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Asheville’s newly renovated Pack Square Park.
What else separates Pack’s Tavern from other establishments is our unique variety of craft beer. They carefully pair beer styles with food items on the menu so you can experience the remarkable compatibility of food and beer. They rotate 30 or more local, national, and international craft beers to offer the best selection available. They have established partnerships with individual breweries and distributors that will allow us to debut new creations, feature limited quantity selections, and to make available the most sought after beers and breweries.
This month’s giveaway comes from Beer City’s own, Bruisin’ Ales. Bruisin’ Ales is a beer-only store, stocks over 1000 brews from around the world (and around the corner). This small, colorful beer boutique in the heart of downtown is a treasure trove for beer lovers—specializing in Belgians, Belgian-style, select American craft brews, and the very best from around the world. Here you’ll find rare beers, exceptional seasonals, and other hard-to-find limited releases. The bottle shop set-up allows customers to “Mix-a-Six.”
Bruisin’ Ales Pint Koozie and Coaster Set (including holder & 6 coasters), from Oowee Koozie, and an Asheville Beer Alliance pint glass.
