Craft beer is taking over the Upstate… there’s no denying it. But sometimes it’s difficult to know what to order. “What flavors are in this?” “HOW much alcohol is that?!” “Isn’t all craft beer bitter?” We’ve decided to take this to the experts. Stephanie King, our Social Media Director (and Cicerone® Certified Beer Server), is visiting local brewers to learn about their beer, and who exactly will enjoy it! Hint…. just about everyone. In this episode of Upstate on Draft, Stephanie talks to with Michael Robinson, one of the owners of 13 Stripes Brewery in Taylors, about their 2018 Oktoberfest. Check out the video below to learn all about the beer (+ the accompanying festival)!

This week’s Fresh Air Friday takes us outside of the Upstate. Hot Springs, NC is just a short drive into the mountains, and it is so worth the trip. Nestled in a sleepy mountain town, Hot Springs is the perfect outdoor oasis for a family trip. My family and a group of friends recently completed our annual pilgrimage to Hot Springs, North Carolina and, as I am every year, am blown away by the fact that we have such a place this close to home. The sleepy little mountain town has everything you could possibly ask for in an outdoor adventure – the French Broad River, access to the Appalachian Trail, campsites and cabins, and (of course) a hot spring. All of this is roughly two hours or less from anywhere in the Upstate making it one of the most accessible resort towns you could ever ask for.
