I flew out to the east coast for meetings this week, and I'm using the opportunity to sample beers I can't get in LA.

I had a few kinda sketchy NC brews in the Charlotte airport, but there was a standout Munich dunkel from olde micklenberg (?) brewing that was very enjoyable.

Right now I am drinking my first Smuttynose beer, their "finest kind" IPA. It is not bad with the exception of finishing a bit harsh for my taste. I am guessing they use something rather high in cohumulone for their bittering addition(s).

Drinking a very disappointing Sam Adams Alpine Spring.

I am drinking a few of my Sleepy Hollow Pumpkinhead Ales and then will probably end the night with an Ithica Flower Power.

My clone of Lakefronts IBA I got from NB. Being a hophead this is one of the best beers I've had...ever.

Where were you in NC? Charlotte only?
