I stopped in at Blue Blaze Brewing Company in Charlotte, North Carolina for a beer. I tried the Blue Blaze Altbier which was really crisp and refreshing. The bartender pointed out that #NPS100 Irish Red Ale had just been tapped today so I gave that a try and decided to go with a full pour. It was a malty and hoppy delicious beer. Full of flavor and body. I tried a sample of the Scotch Ale and enjoyed it but felt it tasted a bit boozy for my taste.
I met some guys at the bar who were also brewery visitors. They were pumped at having visited 300 breweries. Which is quite an accomplishment. When I told them I’d been to over 500 I’m not sure if they believed me or not. But we had a good time talking about several brewery favorites we had visited.
