It's great to be home!
Sunday night I got back from a vacation in the Boone/Blowing Rock area. Since both my wife and I graduated from AppState, we're pretty familiar with the area. One thing that's very different is the way the craft beer revolution has taken the area by storm. Always on the lookout for new content for this site, I decided to do a brewery tour of the High Country.
There are now at least five breweries in an area where you used to not be able to buy mixed drinks at a bar. I broke away from the group one day and made the rounds talking the the owners and brewers at Blowing Rock Brewing, Appalachian Mountain Brewery, Boonshine Brewing, Lost Province Brewing, and Boondocks Brewing Company. It was a fun way to kill an afternoon and chat with some awesome people. There's a lot of footage to comb through, but I hope to have an episode of Das Beer Show ready for you guys next Thursday.
I'm very excited for the return of new episodes to DBS and I hope you are too. I look forward to this and much more cool stuff coming soon!
