CNN.com just released a pretty good article about Beer and travel. You can read the full article here. The article interviews several beer sources (like Randy Mosher and Stephen Beaumont) and it reports on how our country has become a travel destination in the beer world.
“When it comes to taking spirited vacations, wandering a vineyard falls flat in the face of handcrafted brew. With more than 1,500 breweries across the United States, beer is not just a drink — it’s a destination.”
But the best thing about the article was how it mentions that North Carolina is the home to some great beers and a great brewing scene. Asheville is given props and the article specifically mentions Foothills and their beer, Sexual Chocolate.
Check out the article and raise a glass to North Carolina, a great beer state!
