about this item
Take a beer road trip through the southeastern United States in this beautiful, fascinating book on the region's most notable craft breweries--and learn what to do after the tour!
While the West Coast has long been known for its craft brewing scene, the Southeast is arguably the nation's new hotbed for breweries new and old. Upstarts from Cigar City in Florida to Wicked Weed in North Carolina are pushing flavors forward with sour beers and other wood-aged ales.
In The Great Southeast Brewery Tour, beer expert Ben Keene shows you sixty-two of the most incredible breweries in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, Mississippi, Arkansas, and Louisiana. Breweries like New Orleans' Abita and Atlanta's Sweetwater reflect the character not only of the states but the cities they're in as well. From old Southern cities where lagers reign supreme, to progressive towns with big IPAs and sour beer, each brewery is unique and special, much like the region's brewing heritage.
Ben Keene's brewery profiles include interesting facts about each brewery and its history, along with useful practical information such as directions, nearby accommodations, and local dining options that highlight craft beer. Spectacular, full-color photography accompanies each profile, and sidebars throughout the text provide supplementary information on tasting methods, beer styles, and more.The Great Southeast Brewery Tour is an ideal resource for anyone interested in beer, whether you're planning a trip across the Southeast or are simply curious to learn more about the region's innovative beer scene.
