A shout out to NC craft brews…and there are many.
On the top of my list of favorites is Duck Rabbit Brewing in Farmville NC. Specializing in dark beer I’ve been enjoying their Milk Stout for a few years. I recently had my first Hoppy Bunny on tap at Blue Moon Beach Grill in Nags Head. A summer IPA its deep caramel color is almost black, dark creamy head, smooth flavor with hints of spearmint and citrus. Tasting it reminded me of why I love craft beer, it’s a good one.
A few of my other favorites:
Highland Brewing, Ashville NC; Gaelic Red Ale, Oatmeal Porter
Oskar Blues, Breavard NC; Old Scratch Scotch Ale
Mother Earth Brewing, Kinston NC; Weeping Willow Wit, Sisters of the Moon IPA
