Beermosas, Beer Slushies, and Hello Pints: B&B in Asheville Brews a New Getaway
Move over orange juice, at the Lion and the Rose Bed and Breakfast it’s a beermosa that’s served on Sundays, while beer slushies and welcome pints are among weekday fun
The Lion and the Rose Bed and Breakfast in Asheville has just launched its Hoppy Days are Here Again getaway, complete with a complimentary, icy cold, hello pint upon arrival.
“Who doesn’t love a cold beer, especially after driving a few hours?” said Karen Wilson, who owns and runs the bed and breakfast alongside her husband, Steve. “We’ve always appreciated the little details in our own travels, so we figured this was a no brainer.”
Karen and Steve moved to Beer City USA nearly 2 years ago. They quickly learned that Asheville takes its craft beer quite seriously, with its 60+ regional breweries — the second most breweries per capita in the United States. Beers became hugely curious to the couple. Steve, who was already into brewing now incorporates his own beer into their business.
Initially, they started offering beer days with a “hoppy hour.” The demand pushed them to brew larger batches and invest in two taps.
“I enjoy sharing my passion for beer and I especially like seeing our guests smile when I hand them a cold one,” Steve said.
The welcome beer has inspired more beer iterations for guests. Those that arrive on a Saturday night, get a beermosa with Sunday morning breakfasts throughout August, which will frequently be paired with the B&B’s signature Orange Ricotta Pancakes. Beer slushies are also part of the menu; as well as a more curated experience.
The Hoppy Days are Here Again getaway includes:
- Complimentary cold hello pint upon check-in
- 10% discount off any Tukit Tour (choose from Brewski Hop, City and Chocolate tour, or Rooftop Hop)
- 10% off BREW-ed Brewery Tours
- 10% off any Eating Asheville Tour (choose from Classic, High Roller, or Cold One food and brewery tour
- *Beermosa with breakfast (Sundays only in August)
This getaway is available to any guests who book directly on the B&B’s website at www.lion-rose.com.
