We loved seeing our local Marathon stations in the news. If you aren't familiar with these Triangle Stops yet, you should be! As quoted from Marathon Corporation News:
Five of [the] 10 Triangle Stop convenience stores so far now feature microbrewery offerings, featuring local brews that are rotated through the taps. Customers can sit and enjoy a glass of brew, or take it out with them sealed in one-quart growlers. [They have] branded the new concept as Mountain River Tap. "There’s definitely a local cachet to this, noted Beau Waddell. “The area is home to several craft breweries, and the idea that the brews are made right down the street makes it cool for customers,” he says. Waddell says their goal is to have beer and cider on tap that you can’t buy in bottles or cans. “Our taps feature offerings from a total of 40 different breweries, and we have a total of 60 taps between the five stores,” said Waddell. “Our associates are trained to ask people what they drink on a regular basis, so they can match them up with something they will like.”
Here are some ads/posters we did for Mountain River Tap & Growlers. This particular location (on Airport Road) has become a destination for Asheville Airport travelers. Go check them out!
Some of our clients were involved in a recent coloring contest at the Blue Ridge Mall. The community came out to support their favorite local organization on by helping color murals and also by shopping on their behalf and showing receipts to help them win shopping points. Our client, Western Carolina Community Action was awarded best mural by the judges! There is still a community choice category and the public is encouraged to vote online until March 13 at www.wecolorforacause.com.
