North Carolina is for beer lovers. Craft breweries flourish famously in the mountains, with urban flair in the Piedmont and with character along the coast. The number of breweries stands at about 75 statewide — it’s hard to keep an up-to-date count with new breweries constantly rising on the beerscape, but we know that North Carolina has the highest total between Pennsylvania and Texas. Pack your beer compass for an NC Beer Month trip and watch the needle go wild. From the mountains to the sea, breweries and brew pubs welcome visitors for tours, tastings and dining on food truck creations and four-course meals — plus music, comedy and sometimes Shakespeare. Beyond the local brewery, bars and restaurants pour regional brews and know the menu’s best matches. And shoppers find stops with supplies for home brewers and beer souvenirs.

In North Carolina Craft Beer & Breweries, Erik Lars Myers profiles 45 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.Drinking local harks back to the founding of Asheville in 1798.

That enthusiasm earned the city the coveted Beer City, USA title year after year and prompted West Coast beer giants Sierra Nevada, New Belgium and Oskar Blues to establish production facilities here. Beer writer and educator Anne Fitten Glenn recounts this intoxicating history, from the suds-soaked saloons of "Hell's Half Acre" to the region's explosion into a beer Mecca.Charlotte has entered a golden age of craft brewing, and while this fermented frenzy may feel altogether new, it evokes a forgotten heritage that dates back to colonial days.
