Time for Part II of our Greenville, SC trip and the "brews" portion of the "Views and Brews" mini-series. You can catch the "views" HERE if you missed it.
Our brews of the weekend included beer and coffee- two of my favorite things. Luckily, they are two of Cassie and her husband's favorite things too (although Cassie obviously couldn't partake since she has a little one on the way).
On Thursday, the first "brew" location we stopped at was Tandem (which I talked a bit about in Part I). Not only did I enjoy one of the most amazing crepes, I also had an awesome americano.
After our waterfall adventuring, we hopped over to Oskar Blues Brewery in Brevard, North Carolina. I enjoyed a tasty Deviant Dale's IPA and sampled a few of their other brews. Definitely a great little brewery. While we were there, we noticed that one of the musicians from the Infamous Stringdusters would be playing live later that day.
Once we finished our beers, we headed to Asheville for lunch, then backtracked to see the live music! Live music, beer, and friends in the mountains can't really be beat. We had such a fun time chatting, eating more food from their food truck (duh), and playing corn-hole. Which Cassie and Peter killed us in.
On Friday, we enjoyed some home-brewed coffee with breakfast before heading downtown. After exploring and having some lunch, we hopped over to Methodical Coffee. This is a great, trendy little place that really puts their heart into each cup of coffee.
At dinner, I tried a local pale ale as well as a sour, which was delightful. I haven't tried many sours, but thanks to Cassie and Peter's recommendations, I ended up with one that I loved! We did have late night coffee after dinner on Friday night as well, but we completely forgot to document this. What kind of bloggers are we?! We were obviously too busy having fun.
Saturday's brews included some home-brewed coffee and later in the day a Great Divide Denver Pale Ale plus some wings at Local Cue.
Sadly, Sunday morning we had to head back home. It was such a great trip. We are so grateful that we got to spend time with Cassie and Peter, as well as explore more of their hometown. We can't wait to visit again!
