If anybody in Bryson City runs into Mac Brown, tell him I said hello. He used to guide out of McLoed's FlyFishing Outfitters.

+1 GREAT beer, iron work art, etc. also visit the Thirsty Monk, they have a lot of great beers on tap. Really you could spend a few days just finding new beers in Asheville.... I did ;-)

I will have to disagree with the Picadilly in Winchester, VA being good. It blows for beer. They only brew two or three beers, and then they mix them together to make their other beers. Check reviews on Yelp. This is a place worth avoiding.

If going on the Blue Ridge Parkway, just a bit off of it are Devil's Backbone, Blue Mountain and Wild Wolf. The three are all within a couple of miles of one another. If you can only do one, hit Devil's Backbone as I believe they are a bit more highly rated than Blue Mountain (just a bit, BM is really good.)

If you don't mid going a little close to the DC area, there are a ton of great breweries, such as Lost Rhino.

If you go more into Central VA, there is Champion in Charlottesville and Starr Hill in Afton (its more of a production brewery now).

In Scottsville is James River Brewing Company. A great little place and a reasonably scenic ride to get there.

There is also Blue Lab in Lexington, VA.

And as above, you MUST go to Asheville!

SW VA / NC border region along BRP

Yeah, Asheville NC has several great places for good beer.Riding in the area is good but getting crowded.
Foothills brewing in Winston Salem is sorta on the way but the roads will drive you to drink.. If you're going to try and stay close to the BRP while traveling and want some interesting twisties head down Wards Gap Rd to Mt. Airy NC to the Old North State winery downtown (bar & grill also) for some regional craft beer (and decent food) and back up to the BRP on Pipers Gap Road. Some excellent roads in the area and drinkable beer. Galax VA has a sandwich shop downtown with some local brew that's pretty good but once again the roads are much better. Great riding, scenic, clean, wide open.

If you can do a Saturday from 12 to 4, Blue Mountain Brewery makes some phenomenal beer. If you're not looking for a brewery tour, then it should be easier on your schedule.

If you make it as far as central Kentucky , I'd recomend Country Boy Brewery on Chair Ave. in Lexington. They have 14-16 of their own brews on tap and 14-16 of others from around the region.

And they are passionate about their brewing. I asked once about Fat Tire , the guy knew of it but, said they wouldn't sell it in Ky. I suggested that he could brew up something to mimic Fat Tire. He said of course they could but, would not under any circumstances imitate someone else's flavor and that they had plenty of ideas of their own they were yet to make.

Another good place is 30 miles away in danville , Beer Engine. It's a small place with little food and a good selection of beers.

If you come to Ky. P.M. me and I'll buy a round.

If you make it to SE Ohio, there's really great beer at Jackie O's in Athens. I may be a little biased though, been working there for a few years
