Support Continues to Grow for The House That Beer Built
The lack of affordable housing is a problem many people in Asheville and Buncombe County are all too familiar with. The people and local businesses that make Asheville great—the creatives, artists, brewers, servers, chefs, entrepreneurs—deserve to live in a house they can afford.
We are excited to announce The House That Beer Built! This house, funded and built by our local brewing community, will begin construction this November. We’re excited that the breweries that add so much to Asheville’ culture will have a direct way to help ease its affordable housing crisis.
This house has a lead gift from the Asheville Brewers Alliance, but breweries of all sizes are getting involved. From percentage nights or a Habitat brew to volunteering or spreading the word about Habitat, there are a lot of creative ways local breweries are joining in.
We can’t think of a better way to celebrate the craft beer community and the spirit that makes Asheville home for us all. See below to see participating breweries and upcoming events, so you can grab a pint and support affordable housing!
