Beericana Craft Beer & Music Festival
Appalachian Mountain Brewery, often called AMB is the focus of our newest episode of the NCBeerBuzz as we visit the brewery and sit down to talk to Nathan Kelischek, Brewmaster and Director of Brewery Operations, and Chris Zieber, Head Brewer and Sustainability Coordinator. As a brewery, meeting place, and constituent of the community, AMB has a lot going on! First off, they love beer! Nathan was born and raised in Asheville and has a degree from Appalachian State in Environmental Science with a minor in Chemistry and Geology. Chris began brewing in 2009 and graduated with a degree in Environmental Science from UNC in 2011. Also born and raised in Western North Carolina with ancestral roots in Germany, Chris is proud to be continuing the tradition of excellent brewing while focusing on sustainability and community.
