As we've said many times before, AMB is all about connecting with and supporting the community. To this end, we celebrated the first annual New River Festival at the brewery last weekend. It was a huge success and the atmosphere felt more like a neighborhood block party than a brewery tasting room! There were live performances from Keith Stroud, Anna Barnett, and the New River Boys, all performing throughout the day and well into the night. We grilled out as well, serving chicken wings, ribs, and veggie burgers, all of which benefits the Watauga River Partners and the National Committee for the New River. Giant Jenga also made it's debut at the brewery, and it has instantly become a classic. In the end we raised over $600 for our non-profit partners, helping to protect the New River and all of its tributaries, including the two creeks that run next to the brewery.
