This series of posts is dedicated to the many, many six packs, pony kegs and pints that have sauntered into my life at one point or another.
I live in a state that does just fine by itself when it comes to beer, thanks. But I still miss the lovingly crafted brews of the little mountain town I left about a year ago. It can be especially hard to know that there are always new offerings slushing through taps and getting sealed into cans. Luckily, no matter how skittish the TSA may be about liquids onto aircraft, skilled travelers can figure out how to get a beer or two (or three or four or….) through. And there’s always a good reason to go back to Asheville. Since my partner-in-all-things recently completed the round trip, our Northern fridge is currently surprising well-stocked with Southern beers. Including among those cans and bottles was Green Man’s Sunseeker Pils. Like a lot of brews from the stealthy Western North Carolina innovators, it’s a beauty. It’s got the trademark pilsner crispness with just a hint of trendy sourness on the tongue. It begs to be sipped all day long while watching the shadows of the mountains creep on by.
