August 21st is the first date in almost 40 years that a total solar eclipse will be visible – and that is super cool. Even cooler? Asheville is one of the few areas in the United States that will have a 99% eclipse, visible at roughly 2:37 pm. The coolest part? You can watch it from our rooftop deck or our grassy meadow with a pint in your hand.
The before and after will be neat to watch as well, so come early, and stay as long as you’d like.
Please try to obtain your own protective eyewear – it is NOT safe to look at the partially eclipsed sun. We have 1,000 on hand in case you forget, you can buy them while they last for $1.
We will have two special small batch beers releasing for this once in a lifetime event!
Saison d’Éclipses : This black saison, like the eclipse itself, is slow in revealing its full beauty. It brings together the classic flavors of a saison along with a dark, roasty character. Reminiscent of fragrant spice bread, this is a beer to comfort you as the moon eclipses the sun and shutters day into night.
Solar Eclipse Black IPA: Jump started by bold citrus hops, rich dark malts lead the way to a roasty smooth finish.
Benjamin Pearce Bjorlie will be on site from 1:30-3:30 playing instrumental funk and jazz.
The Highland Pop Up Kitchen will be in full swing, along with El Querubin, and Sackett Street BBQ.
The rooftop bar is 21+, the Meadow is family friendly.
