We took advantage of a long summer day to venture north for our first mixer at Big Pillow Brewing in Hot Springs.

It was hard to make an accurate count as there was continual moving from inside (where it was cool) to outside (where it was quiet), but between 12 and 20 members attended. The beer was good, as was the food (provided by the Grey Eagle Taqueria, which also has a restaurant in Asheville. Our next mixer is Thursday, July 18, at Salt Face Mule Brewing in North Asheville, which will be our first visit there.
