    I just finished reading Asheville Beer: An intoxicating history of mountain brewing. Anne’s coverage and timeline of Western North Carolina’s brewing history is priceless. It is very informative, very entertaining, and very easy to follow. With the brewing scene in WNC increasing and growing at a constant pace, she will have to write part 2 very shortly!

    NC is not just a great state for beer, but also a great one for people who write about beer too!, October 19, 2012

    A couple of disclaimers. First I am a huge fan of craft beer, especially beer from NC. Secondly I have been in NC long enough to see it grow from a BMC (Bud, Miller, Coors) is good enough state, to a craft beer powerhouse. Last time I checked we have over 70 breweries in the state, with more popping up seemingly every week. So I know and like things related to the subject of craft beer.

    So when I heard there was a book coming out about the Asheville area and some of the history surrounding the beer there, I was an easy sale. I didn’t expect too much of it, but if it was about NC beer and it helped an NC writer I was in. I figured with my beery background I already knew most of what was going to be in it. Well let me tell you how wrong I was. That book taught me tons about an area of NC that I thought I knew well. The depth of research, the pictures etc.. were first rate. I thought I really knew a lot about the beer scene in Asheville, but I only had scratched the surface. And she does it all with such an easy style, you think you are listening to her telling you this stuff over a couple of beers in a bar somewhere. A very easy read, that I was thoroughly impressed with. Even though I bought her book, I feel like I now owe her a beer for writing such a great book. If you are REMOTELY interested in craft beer even if it’s not NC beer, get this book. It’s a fun, highly informative read..

    I enjoyed this book. It’s a nice companion to an Asheville trip. The author discusses all the local breweries’ history, beer, location and what it has to offer as far as a tap room, pub, etc.
