I have asked in a couple of blog posts for a communal space for all L.A. County Brewers Guild members where beer can be poured from all over L.A. from one cold box.

Well the CANarchy group has taken that idea for the breweries under their umbrella and will be openind a Collaboratory in Asheville, North Carolina.

They are taking over the Lexington Avenue Brewery and under the guidance of Wayne Wambles from Cigar City, will re-open the space “for frequent collaborations not just between breweries within the CANarchy Collective, but within Asheville’s local brew scene, and national and international breweries as well.”

It sounds like a fun way to always have collaborating going year-round instead of just on a haphazard basis. Just wish it was on this coast.

The Collaboratory will open in March 2019 after the space undergoes renovations to maximize the brewing capacity.
