PEOPLE WHO CREATE THINGS HAVE ALWAYS INTERESTED US. No matter if it's a well made belt that you wear everyday, a great song or an amazing plate of food, well made things stick with you for years.  It's not just the product though, it's the passion and hard work that went into making it.  People who have passion for making things and expressing themselves through art tend to leave a part of that passion in the object.  This passion that they have instilled into their creation is what you feel every time you sing the chorus, take a bite or have a drink.  Passion is the real reason we value things.  To see it in others, and in ourselves, in all things we do.  So raise a glass to the passionate, the creators, the makers in your world.     Our Best to You and Yours

PRAISED FOR IT'S FANTASTIC AMBIANCE AND DELIGHTFUL WINE SELECTION, 5 WALNUT WINE BAR HAS BECOME A LOCAL FAVORITE SINCE OPENING ITS DOORS IN 2010. From Pinot Noir and Chardonnay to Peach Honey Wine and Moscato, 5 Walnut's selection of both locally and internationally made  beverages is impeccable; and to complement the wine is a finely crafted menu of bar snacks and cheese boards. Gourmet potato chips, smoked trout jerky and  the I've Got The Blues cheese plate are just a handful of the scrumptious delicacies available to accompany your drink of choice. Also on the menu is a wide variety of both local and imported brews as well as rotating beers on tap.  Aside from their vast wine selection, 5 Walnut often draws a crowd with it's swanky blues music that can be heard blocks away as the soft notes of jazz singers and trumpet players cascade out of the building's large open windows and on to the surrounding streets. But it's not always jazz music that you'll hear drifting from 5 Walnut's doors. Each night, they offer live music, placing a priority on  local bands and ensuring the music scene is as diverse as the town. Inside, the exposed brick walls and warm wooden tables beckon both locals and tourists alike to stay awhile. The sweet, full-bodied smell of wine and cheese floats through the air as patrons sip their drinks and allow their hips to swap to the beat of the music.  Adjacent to 5 Walnut Wine Bar is the owners' newest addition, 5 Walnut Cheese Bar. There, you can find cheese, charcuterie and other local snacks to enjoy with your wine or to take home for tomorrow's afternoon snack. From goat cheese to Manchego, their cheeses are sourced  from both local and international creameries.  Whether you revel in 5 Walnut's wine, cheese, live music or a combination of all three, its sophisticated vibe will foster the creation of wonderful memories and make it one of your favorite places to visit downtown.

Smash Box  Mobile Kitchen is a catering truck! And although their food truck menu is Nicaraguan-style cuisine, Chef Nestor can cook up just about anything your heart desires.  "We do family style, buffet and even plated catering," said Ashley. "One of our more casual options is to have stations. We can do a build-your-own artisanal salad station, a taco station, a make-your-own-waffle station, a mac 'n cheese station where we put the mac 'n cheese in martini`glasses–people go crazy over that one. But we can also do a more traditional plated meal with a filet mignon and  sautéed  brussels sprouts. We can really do it all."

And by do it all, Ashley really isn't kidding. Smash Events offers not only catering services, but floral design and event planning services as well. Whether it's a wedding, a corporate event or a private party, Smash Events can plan and execute the occasion from start to finish. "What really sets us apart is that we bring our food truck to every catering event that we do," said Ashley. "Everything is prepped and cooked onsite. We've had a lot of people tell us that our food doesn't taste like normal wedding food because it's so fresh."  With over 70 events on the books for 2018, they seemed to have caught on to something that folks really want.  People also tend to be surprised that they can do such high end food out of their food truck.  Although they've moved away from being solely a food truck that attends festivals and breweries in  able to focus  on catering,  you can still find Smash Box at  MAHEC and Twin Leaf Brewery every Tuesday. Recently, we had the pleasure of joining them at Twin Leaf to learn a little about their menu and what beer pairings they recommend. Nestor was also kind enough to share his very own Shrimp Ceviche recipe. 28

PARTING THOUGHTS

The Cornucopia of Craft Brews ARTICLE AUSTIN BENNETT

DID YOU KNOW THAT BEER IS THE THIRD MOST CONSUMED BEVERAGE IN THE WORLD, FOLLOWED ONLY WATER AND TEA? This fact probably won't surprise you after you walk into Craft Centric Taproom & Bottle Shop in South Asheville. Owners Matt and Shannon Vaughan have created a veritable mecca for beer enthusiasts and those who are just curious to try new flavors. They are also Asheville's first bottle shop, taproom and nano brewery all combined in one.  When I first went in, I was a bit overwhelmed with the variety, (over 400 bottles and cans and  26  rotating taps), but I found  great guides in Matt and "brew dude" Josh Austin, his partner in their newest venture, Fermented Nonsense Brewing.  "Craft beer and brewing in general isn't just for nerds anymore," said Matt. "We make education and beer experimentation a part of the overall experience with our customers. We want you to taste something new on draft and then be able to take a similar flavor profile home in a mixed 6-pack."  With their new nano brewery now operational, and with Josh's experience with large scale as well as home brewing, they're already cranking out great beer that suits many different palates.  Whether you're looking to find a new favorite beer, learn more about how it's made from really knowledgeable and fun people or just have a pint and relax, they've got you covered.

Be sure to follow Craft Centric on Facebook to stay up to date on all of their fun events and current beer list. Also, don't miss your chance to try their plethora of brews and engage in some healthy competition at their Trivia Night every Tuesday.  34
