Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity and the Asheville Brewers Alliance (ABA) are excited to partner for “The House That Beer Built”. This Habitat house will be funded and built by the local brewing community and beer lovers at-large. The Asheville Brewers Alliance has committed a generous lead gift, and local breweries and related businesses are participating in a myriad of ways. House construction begins in November, and fundraising for the house is ongoing.

“The Asheville Brewers Alliance and Habitat for Humanity have a long-standing relationship that we are excited to continue and grow. Our local craft breweries are already so committed to building community within our industry and with other local businesses and nonprofits, so it seemed fitting to support the actual construction of a home for one of our neighbors. We are honored to participate,” said Kendra Penland, Executive Director of the Asheville Brewers Alliance.
Kit Rains, Asheville Habitat’s Development Director added, “We are thrilled that the breweries that add so much to Asheville’s culture have chosen to partner with Habitat to help ease our city’s affordable housing crisis, and provide another family the opportunity to build a better future on the foundation of the stability that comes from owning a decent and affordable home. We can’t think of a better way to celebrate the craft beer community and the spirit that makes Asheville home for us all.”
