Beer is getting old in Asheville (well not really) but spicing it up with Tequila sounded like a plan to us. We started this mission at Fig Bistro, and have since tried and tested many other places. The type of beer we used? I liked it with a Catawba Firewater, a shot of Tequila, a splash of fresh lemon and lime, salt, and a lime riding the rim of my glass. Perfectomundo! So good.
At the Cantina at Biltmore Village, we tried it with Negro Modelo, and a White Zombie Ale. Delish. So now, since they have like 50 types of tequila at the bar, we have a lot of beer/tequila pairing and testing to do. Try it, you may like it! This may be a new movement in the works. The Asheville Beerita Culture lol.
