Speaking For The Trees

We live in an extremely beautiful place amid ancient mountains that are home to a rich diversity of plants and animals. Our forests offer us so much and in return it is our responsibility to stay informed and involved with their care-taking and management. The Nantahala and Pisgah National Forests have been revising their Forest Plan. The Forest Plan is a required document that provides a general framework to guide management of the Forests. The U.S. Forest Service will hold open houses across the Nantahala and Pisgah National Forests from late June to early August to provide the public with opportunities to talk with Forest Service staff about local issues, district projects, and the Nantahala and Pisgah Forest Plan revision.

May Collaboration For June Celebration

Last month One World Brewing helped conjure up a 3-way collaboration brew with Sanctuary BrewingCo. in Hendersonville and Habitat Brewing Co., located in the rear of the Moog building in DowntownAsheville. We decided on a super juicy Brett IPA and we’re calling it “Three’s Company.” It’s got an ABVof 7% and is light on the IBU’s to showcase the splendid aromas and complex flavors of the Columbus,Mosaic, Amarillo and the newly developed Galaxy hops, which we also used for a very generous dryhopping. Our choice for yeast was the infamous Brettanomyces Claussenii, which was previouslythought to be a bacterium but has recently been promoted to full yeast status. It imparts very littlesourness and the perfect type of funk that really brings out the grapefruit, pineapple juiciness of thehops.
Three’s Company Brett IPA was brewed at Sanctuary because they have twice the size of our brewing capacity and 3 times the size of Habitat’s, who has taken over our title as the Smallest Brewery in Asheville. One World is going to use this collaboration IPA to raise $1 of support per pint for our local Habitat for Humanity by including it in the Asheville Brewer’s Alliance collaboration: “The House That Beer Built.” So, this may be Asheville’s first Collaboration within a Collaboration.

Mixed Culture: A Monthly Dance Party

Once a month we turn down the lights, turn up the volume, and dance underground underneath our disco ball! Mixed Culture takes place on the first Friday of every month and is always free for everyone. The music is always different but the vibe remains the same: Forget your weekly woes, leave negativity at the door, and get down and dance those worries away with a few of your closest friends at One World.
Music can range from House, Disco, Techno, Funk, Indie, and everything in between. Sometimes there’s even some live music to kick the night off as we ease our way onto the dance floor. Midnight Snack, Brie Capone, and Tin Foil Hat are just a few the acts that have graced our underground stage in the past.
This month’s installment on Friday, April 7th features a trio of local Djs that plan on bringing that disco heat to you! Marlon Rando will kick things off followed by a live PA/Dj set from Walkhome. The night ends with our resident Brandon Audette (AKA acidfive) taking you back down to boogie town!
These nights can get a little packed and we have limited capacity so please arrive early and be patient with us as we try to get everyone in.

Two Hands Project

The question of why we called our brewery One World Brewing is quite common. The name was inspired by the idea of “One Love”, pointing to the interconnectedness of us all. At this time in the world when there is so much chaos and uncertainty on so many levels it is even more important for us to engage in dialogue, collaborate, support and learn from one another. We have found over the last three years of being in business that even a small, local brewery like ours has patrons on a daily basis from all over the globe.

Ancient Ales to Modern Hybrids

Ever wonder why you love beer so much? Well, we humans have been drinking beer for at least five thousand years. Some evidence suggests it may be more like twenty thousand years, according to Dr. Patrick McGovern, an archaeologist and professor at the University of Pennsylvania, who specializes in ancient fermentation.
