Hey MDixon, I was not trying to dish on NC. In fact, NC has a better beer scene than where I'm at. The last time I was there (2 years ago) I went camping with my brother and our families and we ran out of beer the first night
Anyway, it was in the mountains and was a dry county (must have been Graham) and it was a 45 min trip (one way) to the nearest beer store, so we decided to stay put and enjoy soft drinks the rest of the trip. I was impressed with Asheville's microbreweries 10 years ago when my brother lived there. I really liked the Brew and View place with the giant gorilla on top of the building and I wonder if it is still around.
