Beers of North Carolina

This weekend we went to Asheville, NC for some serious around-the-clock beer tourism. Several triad homebrewers got together and made a weekend out of touring breweries and drinking North Carolina beer.

In case you didn’t know, Asheville is one of the top beer capitals in the country. That’s right. It beats out Portland, Denver, an other more famous beer destinations in one very important statistic: There are more breweries per capita in Asheville, NC than in any other US city. That not only means there is a huge variety of beer, but it is incredibly accessible (private brewery tours, discussing brewing techniques with the head brewer, or shaking the hand of the owner… those things are the norm, not the exception).

I made a personal goal this weekend to see how many North Carolina beers I could sample in one weekend. We didn’t even get to all the breweries in Asheville, only touched on a tiny fraction of the beers brewed in this great state, and frankly didn’t add any to my list on Sunday because I was worried of my liver exploding after all the beer on Friday & Saturday.

So here they are… the 63 NC beers I drank this weekend.
