Boasting more craft breweries than any other state in the American South, North Carolina is the state of Southern beer.
In North Carolina Craft Beer & Breweries, Erik Lars Myers profiles over 50 brewpubs and breweries statewide, providing useful details like location and contact information, tour times and hours of operation, and the breweries regular lineups of beers and seasonal releases. Myers relates each brewery's history and the vision of its founders. Most importantly, he shares its story, showing how it offers something different or unique. Sidebars about festivals, bottle shops, and other beer-related features like hop farms, cideries, and meaderies show how craft beer is a growing and thriving industry in North Carolina.
North Carolina Craft Beer & Breweries is an ideal introduction for people who are just learning about craft beer and a great resource for beer enthusiasts who want to get the most out of their local beer experience. The book contains bonuses like a glossary of beer-related terms, a beer-styles quick reference guide, and an introduction to craft beer and how it is made. A history and time line of beer and brewing in North Carolina from colonial days (when beer was not widely made, due to the warm climate) through Prohibition to the present day take North Carolina Craft Beer & Breweries beyond what readers expect from a local guidebook, proving that "beer is not just a drink--it's a destination" (CNN.com).
