Asheville is known for being the home of the Bob Moog Foundation, created to remember his legacy and the synths he made. It has also become a town of breweries and subsequent bachelor parties. Now those two worlds are colliding with a limited run beer to commemorate the opening of the Foundation’s Moogseum.
The Asheville Brewing Company and The Bob Moog Foundation have teamed up on the Moog Filtered Ale, which will be available starting today for the gran opening of the Moogseum. This is part of Moogmentum, a series of events to mark the opening of the museum taking place this week from August 13-15.
"Moog Filtered Ale is a dry hopped pale ale with big citrus and tropical flavor and aroma,” said Pete Langheinrich, Asheville Brewing Company’s head brewer in a statement. “Moog has always been a huge part of our brewery’s soundtrack and we’re very excited to work with such a true music pioneer. This brew showcases classic and modern American brewing techniques and reflects the passion and ingenuity of both Bob Moog and Asheville Brewing Company.”
After the initial batch, the beer will be found for a limited time (maybe a month) at the Asheville Masonic Temple and the Asheville Music Hall, as well as at Bottle Shop 604 in west Asheville and the Asheville Brewing Company in downtown Asheville. The beer will be made available in draught only.
All profits from the sale of the beer will go to the Moog Foundation. Take a look at the full schedule for the Moogseum launch here.
