Pisgah Brewing Company | Pisgah Pale Ale

June 16, 2017 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

When people think of the Asheville area with regards to craft beer, so many brewery names come to mind. Too many. Asking to list all of the awesome breweries leads down one hell of a rabbit hole, along with the famous special release beers from nearly all of them. What might not be so obvious to outsiders and even some locals is the answer to a question such as “What is the  ______ beer of Asheville?” If that blank space says Pale Ale, there is an easy answer to it: Pisgah Pale Ale.

Omaha Brewing Company | Hannahatchee Creek IPA

June 7, 2017 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

ABV: 6.6% | IBU: 53.3

Once upon a time, there was a dentist who lived in Omaha, Georgia. Much like a molar’s roots function to secure the tooth, Doctor Robert Lee’s familial roots kept him in Omaha. I will not apologize for the tooth analogy. Doc Lee, as he was known around town, wasn’t going anywhere, and he decided Omaha needed a bit of a boost.    Read More

My first beer from Spartanburg, South Carolina brewery RJ Rockers Brewing Company was their double pale ale, Bell Ringer. The first sip of a new (to me) brewery’s beer always sets the stage for how I’ll approach their other beers and, man, was I impressed! I will definitely be seeking out their other varieties now that I’ve tried this.

ABV: 6.3%

How many of you have tasted a bière de garde? I bet not many. Up until recently, I was included in that bunch. Truthfully it’s not the most common of beer styles in the U.S., and in North Carolina, it’s even rarer. As a matter of fact, I can think of only one brewer (no doubt there are more) who produces this style of beer: Durham’s own Ponysaurus Brewing Co. Read More
