Burial was by far my favorite in Asheville. The rest of them were kind of underwhelming, but living in Richmond for 4 years kind of ruined me for visiting almost anywhere else.I don't know if you guys get Burial beers up in Ohio, but if so their pilsners are a fantastic stepping stone into craft beer while also staying delicious even if you're a snob. I go with them a lot when I'm out because they are relatively low ABV so I can drink a few without getting drunk too fast. They're also great on hot days, which is most of the fucking year in NC. It's 80 out right now and we consider this a reprieve from the 95+ heat of the past two weeks.
Shadowclock is the one I can remember off hand but they have a few.
Speaking of which, I moved to Bham Alabama and the beer scene here is sad. But the locals fucking worship it because 10 years ago there were laws that you couldn’t serve beers with ABVs over 5 or so percent
so they compare the breweries to what they used to have as opposed to what has been going on across the country (very unfortunately a common theme in AL). I feel like the snob of snobs, but really Masthead (which is by no means a national powerhouse) would be overwhelmingly the best brewery in the state. Hoof would essentially be a beer diety
oh well,luckily my friends in Richmond send me frequent care packages to get me through it. I will say though Trimtab does put out one annual stout that is outstanding: Language of Thunder Cumulus. It’s legitimately at an Answer stout level. Doesn’t make up for the fact that the other 50 weeks the beer scene sucks, but at least it’s 2 weeks of pastry stout bliss
