“Beer Lover’s the Carolinas” is your guide to the best breweries, brewpubs and beer bars across North and South Carolina.
Both states are home to their share of breweries new and old, and this book offers a look into more than a hundred of them. Each brewery’s section offers a brief account of their history and philosophy, as well as a description of the atmosphere of the place and the beers offered there. Tasting notes are provided for a handful of beers at each brewery, as well as a “Beer Lover’s Pick” that you have to try if it’s available.
