New Beers From Catawba in Asheville, NC

Catawba Brewing’s New Flagship “HOPness IPA” Headlines Two New Releases


Catawba Brewing unveils their new flagship HOPness IPA on Saturday, May 20, with release day festivities planned at all Catawba locations. Brewed with an abundance of fresh Citra and Cascade, and dry-hopped with Amarillo, this IPA boasts a big biting hop profile layered with ripe tropical fruit, juicy citrus, and pine. At 6.5 percent ABV and 60 IBUs, it strikes the perfect balance of everyday drinkability with intensely aromatic and flavorful hop character.


HOPness IPA will soon be available in 5-state distribution, on draft and in 6-pack cans, wherever Catawba beers are sold.



Catawba Brewing and Eagles Nest Outfitters Collaboration “ENO Pilsner” Returns May 26



Catawba Brewing revisits its collaboration with renowned hammock manufacturer Eagles Nest Outfitters on an extended run of ENO Pilsner. These Asheville South Slope neighbors partnered previously in summer 2016 on a limited release of their classic European-style lager. The most widely produced beer style worldwide, the Pilsner has established itself as the undisputed champion of session beers since its introduction in 19th century Bohemia. With a nod to tradition, Catawba brewers have crafted an authentic interpretation of the historical style.


ENO Pilsner (4.9 percent ABV) is brewed with the finest pale malted barley, its subtle sweetness balanced by Noble hops Tettnanger and Hallertau Mittelfrüh, to create a traditional German-styled Pilsner. Then diverging a bit from tradition, a uniquely American hop, Idaho #7, was added late in the boil to provide refreshing citrus undertones. The beer finishes crisp and clean, true to style, making it the perfect easy-drinker for relaxing in a hammock.


This specialty beer will be released on Friday, May 26, with ENO-related festivities planned at all Catawba locations. ENO Pilsner will be available through August, now for the first time in 5-state distribution. Find it on draft and in 6-pack cans wherever Catawba beers are sold.
