Catawba Brewing has big plans for their Small Batch Program, with 52 new beers destined for release in 2017. Every Thursday throughout the year, all Catawba tasting rooms will tap a new Small Batch beer brewed in their Asheville South Slope 7-barrel brewhouse. And now the brewery has a new rewards program for regular customers who want to go the extra mile toward Catawba craft beer enlightenment.
Here’s how it works: Go to any Catawba tasting room to pick up a Beer Passport booklet. When you order a Small Batch beer (full pour) for the first time, you get a stamp in your Passport. For various levels of achievement (13, 26, 39, or all 52 unique Small Batch beers), you’ll qualify for prizes at year-end. The grand prize for those who reach the 52 Club will include a private party in the South Slope Rickhouse bar with catered food, an advance preview of a very special beer release, and additional prizes to be announced later. The first two Passport Beers will be a Chocolate Saison (Jan. 5) and Coffee Porter (Jan. 12). Catawba’s Small Batch beers typically last only about three weeks, so be sure to get them before they’re gone.
