North Carolina Beer Run

Just made a trip down to NC last week, hit a few places along the way and also came back with a crap load of beer.

Stopped 2 days in Cape May and hit the Cape May Brewery....had a few there. they had an excellent Double IPA on tap called Coastal Evacuation.

spent one night in Williamsburg VA and hit the Alewerks brewery while I was there. Had an excellent BBL aged porter and a solid Pumpkin Ale from them.....most of their regular line-up was good.....but nothing exceptional.

Headed down to NC on Tuesday and found this little place called the Brewers Kettle....very cool place. It's a bar that also sells craft beer, on tap and in growlers, to go. you can grab a beer and go out back and sit at picnic tables, drink, and listen to live music......basically hang out at the liquor store all day Seems this is a common model down there for beer consumption.

Wednesday, headed down to Charlotte to see an old friend and have a couple of beers with him. went for a couple in what had to be Hipsterville Central.....some very good beer floating around that area. he fixed me up with a bunch of local beer to take back with me.

Was very impressed with the Wicked Weed brews, out of Asheville NC, I tried....had an IPA called Pernicious and a double IPA called Freak of Nature....both could stand up with the best of what's around up here.

Also had a BBL aged RIS called Sexual Chocolate that is made by Foothills Brewing Co. in Winston Salem....another great beer.

Like I said.....came back with a whole lot of beer....had the Hop, Drop, and roll yesterday......another outstanding brew

My daughter looked at me Thursday and asked me if we could have one day that we didn't end up at a brewery
