The next time you’re planning a road trip to the white sandy beaches and clear waters of the Alabama Gulf Coast, make sure to visit one of the Yellowmammer state’s newest breweries. The directions are easy. Take the highway all the way to the end and when you can’t go any further, you’ve reach the Big Beach Brewing Company in Gulf Shores, Alabama.
We stopped in to visit with Evan Komyati, General Manager of Big Beach Brewing, to chat about Gulf Shores’ newest must-see destination and how this small craft brewery has big plans to bring locals and visitors together to enjoy a pint of Alabama’s finest.
The late Andy Warhol once commented “Don’t think about making art, just get it done.” In Charlotte, North Carolina, Brian Egger and his partners at Montford Misfits are doing just that. They’re making art and it’s popularity has expanded so much you see their creations in restaurants, bars, breweries, and bottle shops all over the state and beyond.
You may not have heard of Brian or Montford Misfits, but if you’re a patron of craft beer establishments, you’ve likely seen (and even commented on) their custom beer maps that adorn walls and entryways everywhere.
With nearly 30 breweries in the Charlotte area, Queen City craft beer enthusiasts have lots of choices. But, sometimes the most interesting places to visit are well off the beaten path.
The Dreamchaser’s Brewery opened its doors in May 2016 just Southeast of Charlotte on the North Carolina / South Carolina border in the town of Waxhaw, North Carolina. We took a trip to Waxhaw to meet Neal and Anita Gimon about this craft beer way station that is quickly becoming a favorite for beer aficionados from both sides of the Carolina’s.
