The list of breweries in the Carolinas just keeps growing. The demand for locally crafted beers continues to rise, as does the sophistication of today's beer aficionados' palates. Here are some unique, fun breweries to visit this year.  


Holy City Brewing in Charleston, South Carolina, started in a garage. Joel Carl and Sean Nemitz started home brewing in the winter and soon after Mac Minaudo and Chris Brown joined their team. Since 2011, this brewery has become a local favorite. With a Bacon Porter on the menu, it's hard not to put this place on your travel itinerary.  


Downtown Kinston, North Carolina, has exploded during the past few years. With the TV show "A Chef's Life," featuring Kinston's own Chef and the Farmer restaurant, tourism has boomed. Mother Earth Brewing opened in 2008 and is within walking distance of the Chef and the Farmer and The Boiler Room restaurants and The O'Neil Boutique Hotel. Not only is the beer excellent (try the chocolate beer), but the whole experience of downtown Kinston is unique and a must do.  


Wedge Brewery in Asheville, North Carolina, is a 1,300 barrel production. The building is an artist studio, too! This friendly, neighborhood brewery is a must see and taste experience.


Plan a visit to the Birdsong Brewing taproom in Charlotte, North Carolina. With unfiltered, tasty, craft beer influenced by West Coast styles, it's a unique experience. The taproom offers four beers year round and three seasonal varieties. Check out Thirsty Thursday to taste a beer you can only get in the taproom.

Remember if you are not within walking distance, you will need a designated driver or an Uber driver. With Uber, there is the advantage of the driver already having your payment information on file. You will not need cash to ride. A picture of the driver and vehicle will be sent to you before the vehicle arrives. It's a safe way to travel. 

The AAA Foundation is a great resource for driving and traffic safety. You can read here the impacts of impaired driving. Don't let drinking and driving spoil a good time. You have to be prepared for the mistakes of other drivers, as well. Schedule a visit to your trusted AAA Insurance agent today and make sure you have the right coverage for you and your family.
