    Since Todd mostly posts on TOS, I figured I'd at least occasionally try and copy-pasta his stuff here. Hope he's cool with it. Deets for the next release:

    Who am I gonna see there?

    I don't think this thread has too much in the way of rails. Others can chime in about good food nearby - I've always stopped going through to/from asheville and ended up eating in Hickory, at Hickory Station or similar. I've heard good things about Mountain Burrito, but haven't yet been. There's also some manner of gastropub in town, I believe

    Not a big fan of smoked beers, but that Mezcal Stout sounds pretty awesome. I also gravitate towards weird shit so that's probably why.

    Stealing more content from Todd from the other site:

    Also, looking for someone from the Charlotte area to help me with a gopickitup - message me if you'll be there from that area (JohnnyNC is the only user I know of that's specifically from CLT, but if there are others out there, message me)

    Yeah, I'll be in AVL Saturday night, but need to snag some Olde Meck stuff, which I believe is still just a Charlotte thing?

    Are bottles from the Fonta Flora release still available? Going to be in Asheville for Thanksgiving and wanted to swing by.

    Sold out the same day - but still well worth a trip to the brewery to drink there

    Definitely worth a trip to drink there.
    Sal de gusano is a tasty beverage.
    Grab some papa mace to go! That stuff is great.
    Good people there.
