This Week @ Habitat Brewing Co.
We are open all 7 days of the week, starting at 3pm each day except on Saturday and Sunday when we open at 12 Noon. We close at 10 most days, except for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday and we close at midnight those nights. Check out what cool stuff we've got for you this week over at the Tavern and Commons!
Common Table : Community Potluck 6:30-8:00pm Join us for our monthly community gathering around the table. Every 4th Monday we invite those who want to be in community and conversation to come together with a dish to share. Gatherings such as this are a big part of who we are and what we want to be for our neighborhood. So bring yourself, a friend if you want, and meet others from your neighborhood and greater Asheville. Find out what people are looking for in life and discover more about yourself in the process. Bring some utensils and plates with you as well if you want to conserve paper waste, otherwise we'll have those things along with our beers, wine, kombucha, and ginger ale on tap to drink.
Asheville Beer and Hymns is back starting at 6:00 to sing some tunes together with a pint in hand!
Espanôl y Cerveza? Wednesdays have become an opportunity to engage in learning the Spanish language. Hablamos Asheville created by one of our regular customers is a space to have a beer or glass of wine and participate in a conversational Spanish class. It is $10/class, but if you come in and purchase 10 classes, you'll receive a 25% discount on the total. 5:30 - 6:30
Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ) will meet for their Accountability Through Action group from 6-9pm in the Commons. If you would like to know more about SURJ find them online and learn more about the work they are doing in the community. We're happy to host them this week!
This week AIC is bringing back their improv JAM! This event brings together seasoned improvisors and newbies together to create an open mic like space that is one of a kind and awesome! JAM starts at 7:30 and is free to all who want to come and participate or just watch and get some laughs in as the week starts to wind down!
This week we have a full slate on Saturday. From 12-1 we have our second installment of the Dialogue Cafè with Robert Zachary. All are welcome to listen to others stories and even share your own in a welcoming, inclusive, and honest space.
An evening of music kicks off at 8pm with Fortune Glory. Alternative folk-rock out of Asheville, NC, Fortune and Glory raise the specter of 70's album rock while adding an amalgamation of influences from countless artists and musical styles of the last 40 years including Radiohead, Wilco, and Band of Horses. Free show! Grab a beer and check out this local show.
And our weekly dance party from 10pm-1am with DJ Kutzu of the Vinyl Time Travels as lead jockey and curator of the dance floor.
We're sorry we had to cancel brunch last week, but Chef Clarence will be back at it this week from Noon to 3:00. Habitat will be serving up our new Brunch Saison which is only on tap on Sundays. The Panthers game will be on the projector and big screen when they travel up north to take on the defending champion New England Patriots. Don't miss out on a great Sunday at Habitat this week!
