Now what?
Okay, you’ve got your glass, you’re through the doors and you’re staring at
a couple hundred beers. Now what?
With a festival this ecumenical, you really can’t lose in your selection of a
strategy. The only way you can go wrong is by sticking with old favorites
for the night. Safe, but missing the whole point of the fest
You need a strategy.
First things first. Get to the closest booth with the shortest line and ask
for whatever the person behind the booth likes best, and then, ask them
why. Break the ice. There—you’re at the fest and you have a great beer.
Now, give the next few hours of your life some careful thought. You’re in a
room with a few hundred beers and, no, you can’t taste them all. Not an
option. However, there are strategies to employ that will maximize your
enjoyment—really simple strategies—and at least one of them will be
just right for you.
Let’s assume you have a favorite beer. Check this Beer Guide and
find your brand or one like it, and note its style. Page through the
Guide, looking for beers in the same style, check the booth num-
ber and start your hunt. Not too shabby, and everyone will be
impressed that you’re on a mission.
Of course, the opposite is equally fun. Seek out beers in styles
that you’re not familiar with. For example, if you’re a hop head,
then try brown ales and porters for a change. Or you might
check out the wide variety in the wheat beer category.
Yet a third strategy would be to follow a favorite flavor. Enjoy the
sweetness of a malty beer, or the bitterness of pale and India pale ales,
or the tartness of a fruit beer? Look in the style directory for other
styles in that vein and check out the beer list for beers in those styles.
Back and forth through the Beer Guide and you’ll end up with some
wonderful beers to get on your next trip to the store. Frankly, I’m a fan
of big malt and look to those styles. I tend to hang around with hop heads
however, and they’re great at bird-dogging the IPAs and double IPAs.
If this is all too structured for you, consider my favorite strategy for maxi-
mizing my festival pleasure. I’m not such a fan of crowds and extremely
curious about beers I haven’t had. I tend to stay away from the crowded
booths and visit booths representing breweries I’ve not met or it’s been
awhile. Once there, I will go up their beer ladder from lightest bodied to
heaviest.
So, go forward and conquer. In your hands is your
map and in front of you is the great unknown,
beyond which lie monsters.

T
he world of beer has changed dramatically. Thirty
years ago, virtually every beer sold in the world
belonged to a single category: the international
light lager style, a pale, highly carbonated, clean and deli-
cately flavored beer that is served very cold. Rival beers
could be differentiated by their marketing, but rarely by
their taste.
After nearly a century of consolidation, only 15 percent
of the 2,300 American breweries of the nineteenth century
were still operating. The statistics were no different in
Europe. Local and regional breweries were being swallowed
by national brands and the decline in beer diversity and
character was accelerating.
Then the renaissance began. As has happened with wine,
cheese, bread, coffee, chocolate and numerous other foods,
traditional, locally-produced alternatives began to capture
the beer drinking public’s imagination. In country after
country, grass roots organizations moved to protect their
favorite breweries and beers.
In the United States, beginning in the 1960s, antiquarian
Fritz Maytag took over the failing Anchor Brewery in San
Francisco, reviving nineteenth century styles. A few years
later, merchant marine Jack McAullife, who missed the ales
he had encountered in Scotland, started the first new ale
brewery in a century, also in California. Hop salesman Burt
Grant, tired of the timid hop flavors, opened the first mod-
ern brewpub, featuring the hoppiest beers brewed in the
States. Two physicists in Boulder, CO began the Boulder
Brewery to make the British-style ales that they had enjoyed
in England.
And that was just the beginning. Homebrewers-turned-
entrepreneurs decided that “going pro” with their home-
made beer wasn’t such an outlandish idea. The giants (rela-
tively speaking) of today’s craft beer world—breweries
including Samuel Adams, Sierra Nevada, New Belgium, and
Rogue—were all launched during the era of the hobbyist,
when beer enthusiasts walked away from on-going careers
to brew professionally.
Today, U.S. cities boast a diversity of beer, both domestic
and imported, unmatched anywhere else in the world. From
an all-time low of 41 in 1981, this country now boasts over
1,500 breweries of all sizes. With a cry of “Drink local!”
microbrewers and pubbrewers produced over nine million
barrels of handcrafted beer last year, permanently changing
the beer landscape. Light lagers still dominate our shelves,
but our brewers are crafting more than 70 other beer styles,
some traditional, others entirely new creations, each with its
own distinctive character and profile.
The Revolution Goes On
Craft brewing itself has changed over the past thirty years, as
craft brewers rebelled first against the reigning brewing para-
digm but then went on to innovate new styles all their own.
English-style ales, the original beers on these shores—
George Washington was especially fond of porter—were
supplanted in the nineteenth century by lager beers from
the brewing traditions of Germany, Austria and the Czech
Republic. It was the sparkling, pale beer of Bohemian that
inspired brewery owners called Pabst, Schlitz, Busch or
Schmidt to build their empires.
So, in the earliest days of the “beer revolution,” craft
brewers reacted against the “mainstream” lager tradition of
Central Europe, and embraced the ale-brewing heritage of
Britain. Pale ale, India pale ale, porter and stout are still
prominent in the style rotation at any brewpub.
The next wave brought wheat beers—refreshing, fruit-
infused, and thought to appeal especially to female drinkers.
American-style wheat beers reinvented the authentic
German-styled originals, with their characteristic banana,
clove and bubblegum notes. American wheat beer was craft
beer, but it was safe.
As American brewers made traditional styles their own,
their tendency was to increase the intensity of every trait: in
particular, escalating hop bitterness and high alcohol came
to characterize the boldest U.S. offerings—sometimes at the
expense of balance. The double or imperial India pale ale
was born, followed shortly by the “imperialization” of a
range of other styles. Alcohol content records were—and
continue to be—broken by so-called “extreme” beers.
Meanwhile, the brewing styles of another great brewing
nation, Belgium, moved into prominence. A few U.S. brew-
eries—New Belgium, Allagash, Ommegang—committed to
brewing entirely in the Belgian vein, but it’s a rare micro-
brewery or brewpub that doesn’t offer a witbier, dubbel or
saison, all thanks to the Belgians.
Two new trends vie for dominance at the cutting edge of
American brewing today: barrel aged beers, that take flavor
from wooden casks already used to house wine or spirits;
and deliberately soured beers, which offer a completely dif-
ferent palate from almost any other convention. Both styles
are gaining in popularity.
On decade into the new millennium, the American
brewing community is diverse, professional, adventurous—
and an accepted part of the landscape. Specialty beers are
no longer an oddity: even beer drinkers who stick to the
mainstream styles realize that their choices are much wider.
With convenience stores and gas stations including pale
ales and Belgian-style wit beers in their coolers, there’s no
going back on beer diversity.

Abbey brewery. Founded by monasteries in France,
Belgium and Switzerland, abbey breweries are still sometimes
on the original site, but most often are names licensed to a
commercial brewery.
Adjunct. Unmalted grain, such as rice, corn, maize and
wheat used in addition to malted barley to make a beer. They
tend to stabilize and lighten the flavor of a beer.
Alcohol. An intoxicating by-product of fermentation, the
result of a process by which yeast acts on the sugars in the
malt. Alcohol content is expressed as a percentage of the vol-
ume or weight.
Ale. One of the two major families of beers, produced by
yeast strains that operate at warm temperatures, and at the top
of the brewing vessel (hence “top-fermented”). Quick fermen-
tation at relatively warm temperatures produces typical fruity
and spicy notes in ales. The traditional beer styles in England
and Belgium, although lager-loving Germany also produces
some spectacular ales.
Aroma. The particular combination of smells from malt,
hops, yeast and any unusual or distinctive characteristics in
the beer.
Barrel. One U.S. barrel equals 31 gallons.
Bitter. One of the British ales almost exclusively served on
draft in pubs.
Body. The particular viscosity of a beer is described as full-
bodied, medium-bodied, or light-bodied, depending on the
sense of “thickness” or “thinness” in your mouth. Also called
“mouthfeel.”
Bottle-conditioned beer. Beer with live yeast left in or
added to the bottle, so that the beer continues to ferment and
develop. It is the bottled equivalent of cask-conditioned or
“real” ale.
Bottom-fermenting yeast or lager yeast. The
yeast used to make lagers is active—it ferments—at colder
temperatures and on the bottom of the fermentation vessel.
Bouquet. The collection of smells, usually floral and spicy,
that a drinker smells before tasting the beer. Produced by the
combination of malt, hops, yeast, and other additives such as
fruit.
Brewpub. A bar, restaurant or tavern that makes its own
beer on the premises and rarely distributes it to other venues.
Considered the earliest form of commercial brewing.
Cask conditioned. The essence of the real ale revolution in
England, cask conditioning an ale delivers a beer that is still
alive and evolving with delicate complex flavors. Very sensi-
tive, it requires the ministrations of a talented brewer and cel-
larman.
Craft beer. A controversial term, it generally refers to
beers brewed in traditional styles, without adjuncts or chemi-
cals, made in small batches by small brewing companies.
Esters. Esters are chemical compounds that result from the
interaction of acids and alcohol, causing fruity flavors and aro-
mas, such as banana, blueberry and pear, that intentionally or
unintentionally occur in some beers.
Fermentation. The process of producing alcohol and car-
bon dioxide through the actions of yeast on sugars.
Fining. A process of producing a “bright” beer by clearing
the beer of unwanted haze through the addition of ingredients
such as isinglass or Irish moss, which takes particles out of the
solution.
Homebrew. Beer made at home. Conservative estimates
have over two million Americans homebrewing. Hops. One of
the four principal ingredients in beer, hops are flowers from
the vine Humulus lupulus, added to beer as a preservative, bit-
tering agent and aromatic.
Keg. A vessel for serving beer in large quantities, varying in
size from five to 10 gallons.
Kraeusening. A German technique for adding fresh,
young beer to a fully fermented batch, kraeusening is expen-
sive and complex but adds character to lagers.
Lager. One of the two major families of beers, produced by
yeast strains that operate at cooler temperatures, and at the
bottom of the brewing vessel (hence “bottom-fermented”).
Longer fermentation at relatively cool temperatures produces
beers that are typically clean and free of side flavors. The tra-
ditional beer styles in Germany and central Europe.
Malt or Malted barley. The basis of beer, malted barley
results from sprouting and germinating barley for optimum
starch content.
Malt extract. Malt extract, either a powder or syrup,
results from evaporating excess water from mashed malted
barley.
Mashing. The preparation of the wort or liquid base of beer,
mashing converts starches to sugars by heating malted barley

with water. Microbrewery. Defined by industry associations as a
brewery that produces less than 15,000 barrels a year (105,000
cases).
Mouthfeel. A sensory way of evaluating the body of a beer,
mouthfeel describes the texture of beer on the palate ranging from
full to light.
Primary fermentation. After pitching the yeast (adding the
yeast to the wort) and during the first five days on average, fermen-
tation converts the sugars to alcohol, and produces carbonation in
the process of this conversion.
Pint. In the United States, a pint contains sixteen ounces.
However, in England it means a serving that is 20 ounces.
Priming. Priming is the process of adding sugar to the brew at
the beginning of the secondary fermentation, creating carbonation.
Secondary fermentation. The final stage of the fermenta-
tion, that can last from three weeks to three years, depending on
the beer style.
Shelf life. Describes the number of days, usually a maximum of
four months for commercially produced beers, that a beer will
retain its peak drinkability.
Specialty brewery. The majority of the beer produced in the
world fits loosely into the so-called international lager style. The
other 70-plus styles are termed specialty beers. Specialty breweries
concentrate on these styles.
Top-fermenting yeast or ale yeast. A style of yeast that
works at room or warm temperatures and ferments at the top of
the beer.
Trappist beer. Beer brewed under the supervision of Trappist
monks. There are seven Trappist monastic breweries; six in
Belgium and one in Holland. Beers brewed in the monastic tradi-
tion by commercial breweries will often refer to their beers as
“abbey” beers, but they are not allowed to use the appellation
“Trappist.”
Wort. The sweet liquid derived from heating the malted barley
with water and hops. Wort is the beginning of all beers.
Yeast. Living micro-organisms that convert sugars to alcohol
and carbon dioxide.
Zymurgy. The art and process of fermentation.

T
oday’s revolution in beer originates in the rediscovery
of classic beer styles and the emergence of new styles.
The sheer diversity in profiles lies at the heart of the
explosion in new breweries and the renewed interest in old
breweries.
While most styles have their moment in history, the demo-
cratic nature of brewing allows brewers and the public to chal-
lenge style definitions, producing a continual evolution of some
styles and emergence or extinction of others.
Top Fermentation Styles: The Ales
Pale ale. The classic ale, pale ales have a pale to copper color
with a fruity /flowery nose. They tend to finish bitter with traces
of malt.
Brown ale. Brown ales are considered working class beers in
England, but are taking off in the States, no doubt because of
their amber/brown color, slight sweet beginning and cola finish.
India pale ale. An historical artefact, India pale ales emerged
from the need for quality preservation during long voyages.
This resulted in a copper-colored, big-bodied, strongly bitter,
rich ale with pronounced alcohol.
Scottish ale. The climate and relative isolation of Scotland led
to a well-rounded, big malty beer with negligible hop flavor.
Porter. A very romantic style, porters harken back to pre-indus-
trial England. Dark brown with ruby highlights and a slight
malty nose, porters have a medium, slightly chewy body with a
clean, quick finish.
Stout. Having descended from porters, stouts are darker in
color, almost black. Ranging from dry to sweet, these medium
body beers start with a toffee, espresso profile and most finish
with a gristy dryness.
Bottom Fermentation Styles: The Lagers
Light lager. Believed to represent 95 percent of the beer sold in
the world, these lagers are light yellow in color, highly carbonat-
ed and vaguely bitter in the finish. They are noted for being
clean, cold, refreshing and drinkable.
Pilsener (or Pilsner). Born in the 1840s, the grandfather to
light lagers, pilseners appealled to the eye as well as the palate.
Deep golden in color, with floral aroma, soft mouthfeel, and
long dry finish, pilseners are a multi-occasion beer.
Vienna. Similar to Märzen, and the abused Oktoberfest “style”
(not a style at all, but the term for the beer served at festivals,
and legally reserved for the six breweries of Munich), Viennas
are the forefather of all amber beers, with their rich ruby color,
malty beginning and dry finish.
Bock. Not what was left in the vats from the winter, but a beau-
tiful spring beer with quite a goat’s kick. The basic style (there’s
maibock, helles bock and doppelbock) has a brown/ruby color,
strong malt aroma with rich medium body and bitterness for
balance only.
Dunkel. The original dark lagers, dunkels predate the beautiful
golden pilsener with their brooding dark color, and malt notes
in the profile. Dunkels are complex with slight sweetness and
balancing bitterness.
Wheat Beers
American wheat. A lighter, more carbonated ale, golden in
color with a light, dry finish. American wheats focus on refresh-
ment and are attracting new converts to specialty beers.
Berliner weisse. Extremely light and highly carbonated, this
weisse beer is highly acidic, and some drinkers choose to add
their own syrups. Best tasted at sidewalk cafes in Northern
Germany.
Bavarian weisse. One of the fastest growing styles, the weisse
beer usually has sediment (hefe-weizen) with obvious citrus,
clove or nutmeg characteristics.
Hybrid Fermentation Styles: Blending Brewing
Techniques
Alt. A German ale noted for its copper color and wine-like taste.
Kölsch. The legal name used only for beers of made in
Cologne, kölsch is pale gold, low in hop flavor and aroma with
a dry finish.
Cream Ale. Uniquely American, cream ales combine warm fer-
mentation with cold lagering, producing a fruity, clean, dry flavor.
Specialty Beer Styles: Unusual Ingredients
Lambic. Spontaneously fermented beers from Belgium, where
the yeast is not manually added but allowed to drift in from the
surrounding countryside—probably the oldest brewing method
still practiced. Lambics complex flavors can be enhanced by the
blending together of different aged beers. Lambics are also com-
bined with fruit such as raspberries (framboise) or cherries
(kriek) for sweeter beers that retain lambic’s underlying wild
character.
Smoke beers. From Scottish ales to Bamberg rauch biers,
smoke-flavored styles are as provocative as they are curious.
The addition of smoked malt (for example, peat or beachwood-
smoked) adds a level of complexity.
Trappist. Only seven monastic breweries can use this appella-
tion, six in Belgium and one in Holland. Top fermented with
multiple fermentations, Trappist ales are united by rich, com-
plex, yeasty flavors; deep auburn colors and big satisfying flavor.

here is a world of difference between appreciating
beer and guzzling beer. This festival is committed to
beer appreciation.
Whether it’s taking the edge off a day at the office, comple-
menting a well-cooked meal or contributing to pleasant com-
pany, beverage alcohol can add to life’s pleasures. However, an
excess of alcohol is destructive. For individuals who consume
alcoholic beverages recklessly, the negative impacts range from
painful hangovers to anti-social and dangerous behavior to
long-term health damage. For society, alcohol abuse can lead
to extensive damage to lives and property.
Faced with the failure of individuals to moderate their own
behavior, this country is increasingly turning to the courts to
seek redress for alcohol-related harm done to communities. In
effect, individuals who consume or serve alcohol without
regard for its consequences have broken a social contract to
protect others from excess. At the heart of individual responsi-
bility is respect for this social contract.
The alcohol content of beer generally ranges from 3 per-
cent to about 8 percent by volume, with most beers at around
4 to 5 percent. While blood alcohol content (BAC) is a precise
measure, the rate at which alcohol enters your bloodstream
varies. Food in the stomach, higher body weight and low fat
ratios slow the absorption rate down. Taking drugs, legal (cold
medicine, for example) or illegal, can adversely affect toler-
ance, as can mental state. The spacing of drinks, taking time
out or drinking alternative beverages, slows alcohol absorp-
tion.
Recognize your own reactions to alcohol and know when
you are nearing the line between responsible and irresponsible
behavior. This self-knowledge is absolutely indispensable to
the social contract we enter into when we consume beverage
alcohol.

(BAC). For example, five parts of alcohol in 10,000
parts of blood is shown as 0.05 percent BAC.
Drinking any amount of alcohol can impair your
ability to drive. A driver with a BAC between 0.05 and
0.07 percent is presumed to be driving while his abili-

W
hat happens when the ingredients of
beer—malted barley (malt), water,
yeast and hops—are combined? Let’s
take a virtual tour through a brewery and see.
Whether you visit a giant like Anheuser Busch, or
your local brewpub, the steps are more or less the
same.
The first ingredient, malted barley, would
make a perfectly respectable breakfast cereal:
crunchy, bready, slightly sweet. The brewer mills
the malt, cracking the grains between rollers to
expose more surface area. Then, just as tea leaves
or coffee grounds are steeped in water to extract
their flavors, the malt is heated with water in a
large kettle called a “mash tun.” The hot water
pulls the sugars from the malt into a solution
known as “sweet liquor.”
The brewer rinses the malt (“sparging”) and strains it to get
the last of the sugars into solution. The malt is now “spent
grain,” useless for beer, but still good for baking, or for animal
feed.
The sweet liquor is piped into the next large tank in the
brewery, the brew kettle. Here, hops—green, cone-like
flower—are added and boiled with the liquor. Hops added
early in the process preserve the beer and add welcome bitter-
ness to balance the sweetness of malt; a dose of hops at the
very end adds the flowery aroma we prize in many beers. The
new stew of malt sugars, hop flavors and water is called “wort.”
The Magic of Fermentation
Cooled to the right temperature, and chock full of sugar, wort
is the perfect diet for yeast, the uni-cellular organisms that do
the work of fermentation. The yeast is pitched in and goes
ingesting sugar and making more yeast. But the brewer isn’t
interested in yeast propagation, but in the by-products of the
process: when yeast consume sugars, they release carbon diox-
ide and alcohol, as well as the interesting extra fruity or spicy
flavors we associate with beer.
After a while, the food runs low, and the increasingly alco-
holic atmosphere becomes unfriendly: the yeast slow down, or
even die. Fermentation is complete.
The “green” beer is transferred to conditioning tanks to
age. If the beer is an ale—a beer produced by a yeast that
works at relatively warm temperatures—it can be ready to
drink within days. If it is a lager, produced by a yeast that
works at lower temperatures, it will need conditioning (“lager-
ing”) at a cooler temperature for several weeks or longer.
At this point, the beer is almost ready for you. In a brew-
pub, you can order beer from serving tanks adjacent to the
fermentation tanks—as fresh as beer can be. A distributing
brewery puts its beer into bottles or kegs at this stage, either
bubbling with the natural CO2 the yeast releases into the
brew, or with the carbonation augmented in the beer or at the
point of dispense. Either way, you should end up with a glass
of fresh beer, packed with complex aroma and flavor.
Take a moment to gaze through the golden, amber or mid-
night liquid. Its elements have been soaked, warmed, germi-
nated, toasted, milled, steeped, boiled, cooled, fermented, fla-
vored, aged, gassed, and chilled. Four simple ingredients have
been through a lot to make that simple glass of beer. Enjoy it!

beyond mainstream lagers. Suddenly, here
with over 175 beers, falling into as many as
50 styles–how do you decide where to
start?
Or perhaps you love beer in all its
diversity, but your companion doesn’t par-
ticularly care for the beverage most often
associated with beer—the international
pale lager style that makes up 90 percent
of all beer sold. How can you guide your
companion to new flavor discoveries?
Sometimes it helps to identify the other
flavors you enjoy, and then seek out a beer
style that has some of the same character-
istics.
If you enjoy: Try these beer styles:
Coffee, chocolate Stouts and porters
Sauvignon blanc, Kriek (cherry) lambic
other acidic white wines
Chardonnay, toasty whites Authentic hefeweizen, dunkel
Lighter red wines Biere de garde
Bold, fruit-forward red wines Russian imperial stout
Champagne Belgian wit beer
Port Barley wine
Gin and tonic India pale ale
Bourbon Belgian dubbles, doppelbock
Milk shake Milk stout

T
here is a difference between drinking beer, which is a
wonderful pastime, and tasting beer, which is a more
focused approach to learning about what you like
and why. By taking the time to observe and talk about the beer
you’re tasting, you can appreciate its complexity. You’ll also
know how to find other beers you’ll enjoy, wherever you go.
Steps in tasting a beer:
First, look at the beer. What color is it? Is it clear or cloudy?
Some styles are meant to be hazy, but most are not. Look at
the foam: every style throws a characteristic head, some
scanty, some huge and rocky.
Next, smell the beer. Aroma is half of taste (this is the best
reason to drink out of a glass, and not from a can or bottle).
Look for bready, caramel notes—these hint at a malt-accented
beer. Or is the aroma floral, grassy or citrussy? These may
come from the hops.
Sip the beer. Beers vary in viscosity—what beer lover call
“mouthfeel.” Is it thick or thin in your mouth? Then appreciate
the changing flavor in the beer. You may detect sweet, candy-
like, caramel, fruity, yeasty or spicy flavors. Or you may be
reminded of toast, cloves, fresh apples or orange marmalade.
Other flavor notes take over once you swallow the beer.
Taste is very subjective and individual; so feel free to iden-
tify the flavors in any way that makes sense to you? Bananas?
Soy sauce? Birthday cake? If that’s what you sense, it’s correct.
A note about sequences:
Everything we taste affects whatever we put in our mouths
next, so bear in mind that every beer you sample will be
affected by the previous sample. The best plan is to start with
beers that are lighter in character, and work up to heavier
beers, so as not to overwhelm the more delicate beers. Or
pause, have some water, and eat something neutral—pretzels
can’t be beat!

BEER EDUCATION
Pairing Beer and Food
B
eer isn’t just for brats and pizza anymore. With the
proliferation of beer styles that are now available,
there truly is a beer that can complement any food.
In fact, some beer lovers will insist that beer is a better com-
panion for beer than wine, and it’s certainly true that certain
foods that are awkward partners with wine find their perfect
match with the right beer.
There are no hard and fast rules for pairing beer and food,
but here are some useful guidelines.
Try to match intensities. A very robust beer will overwhelm
a delicate food.
Look for a flavor “hook.” Brooklyn Brewmaster Garrett
Oliver used this concept to identify the dominant component
in a food, and match it with a complementary hook in a beer.
For example, many roasted or sautéed foods develop sweet,
caramelized flavors. A beer with caramel notes, such as a
dunkel, will underscore these flavors.
Or, find an
exciting contrast.
When serving a
very rich food,
pair it with a beer
that will cut
through the oili-
ness and refresh
the palate. For
example, offset
the intense, oily
character of grilled salmon by pairing it with an assertively bit-
ter India pale ale.
Desserts and sweeter beers can be wonderful companions.
Chocolate desserts and stout are a natural pairing, or try a
creamy dessert with a porter (complement) or a fruited lambic
(contrast).

F
ive years ago this fall, North Carolina finally became a
modern beer state. On August 13, 2005, Gov. Easley
signed a bill that swept away one of the more onerous
relics of the Prohibition era, and opened the way for our devel-
oping craft beer culture to flourish.
Before that date, North Carolina was one of only five states
in the country that capped the alcohol content in beer at 6
percent by volume. That restriction excluded the entire range
of world beer styles that, as part of their character, finish fer-
mentation at higher strengths. German dopplebocks, Belgian
triples, English barley wines, Russian imperial stouts—none of
these classic varieties could be explored by North Carolina
brewers, nor could our
retailers offer for sale such
beers made out of state or
out of the country.
A beer lover arriving in
North Carolina from a
more enlightened place
had to scratch his head at
the lack of diversity on our
shelves and in our restau-
rants. Not that local beer
wasn’t good, or that the
quest for alcohol per se was paramount. But it was akin to
scanning a wine menu that contains only rose and chianti,
when what you really want is zinfandel: the choice wasn’t
there.
Frustrated beer drinkers hoping to change the law formed
the organization Pop the Cap in early 2003, and invested two
and half hard years of educating, lobbying and fund-raising. It
was a remarkably diverse political organization: it seems that
Democrats and Republicans, men and women, blacks and
whites, the devout and atheists could all find something to like
in a beer movement.
Pop The Cap confronted anti-alcohol forces who were con-
vinced a liberalization of beer laws would inevitably lead to
under-age drinking, religious elements who opposed all alco-
hol reform, and a surprising degree of resistance from some
entrenched interests in the alcohol business, itself, who didn’t
want to see their boats rocked. But in the end, the beer enthu-
siasts won the day.
The result? Not only do we now have a full range of
stronger beer styles to choose from, but most of North
Carolina is genuinely beer-friendly across the board (dry coun-
ties excepted). In a recent competition, Asheville, with more
breweries per capita than any town in the country, took the
title “Beer City, U.S.A.” away from beer-absorbed Portland, OR,
the city known to
its fans as
”Beervana.”
The Triangle is
becoming just as
attractive a beer
destination. The
opportunities that
our thirsty beer
culture offers have
prompted three
new brewing companies to open within the past few months,
joining the six already in business.
Raleigh’s Roth Brewing Co. is the brainchild of brothers
Eric and Ryan Roth. The brewery opened its doors in June: its
debut beers included a 10.5
percent barley wine and a cinnamon-spiked porter, along with
their flagship red ale.
“We’ll have our easy-drinking beer, but at any time we’ll
also have at hand beers you won’t find anywhere else,” explains
Eric, who is the brewing brother. “That’s why we don’t make an
IPA right now; I love hops, but if I need a good IPA, there’s a
plethora in good beer stores. But there’s not a lot of cinnamon
porters around.”
A Chapel Hill-based brewery, but with no fixed address,
Mystery Brewing Co. lives up to it name. Founder Erik
Myers—already
known to NC beer
lovers for his blog,
Top Fermented,
and his role in the
North Carolina
Brewers’ Guild—
will brew under a
flexible licensing
arrangement called
alternating propri-
etorship, by which
he will take over an
existing brewery
for a short time,
brew his beer, and
move on.
Not only will
his location change
with from brew to
brew, but the peri-
patetic brewer

doesn’t plan to repeat beer recipes. “This is my giant risk,”
says Myers, “but what I see in the marketplace is that con-
sumers really go after the new beer, the next new thing. That
rotation really appeals to people. I’m hoping to rotate a mini-
mum of four beers through each year, up to six or eight, with
two overlapping each season.”
Most recently, Fullsteam Brewery in Durham is the realiza-
tion of a dream for Sean Lilly Wilson, the creative force that
fueled Pop the Cap. After a summer of introducing beers to
the public, Wilson fittingly opened the brewery’s tavern on the
anniversary of the law’s change. His “plow-to-pint” philosophy
connects the Fullsteam beers to the agricultural heritage of the
South, with a range of brews including a hickory-smoked
porter named Hogwash, built to go with barbeque, and Carver
Sweet Potato Lager.
Our local bar scene is just as lively, with neighborhood
clusters of beer-friendly bars worthy of a
pubcrawl. In Durham, a single block of West
Main Street is home to a string of stops,
from classic college sports bar Satisfaction to
the convincingly authentic James Joyce Irish
bar to all-hours Alivia’s with its attractive
outdoor seating and gastropub The Federal.
Tyler’s Taproom and Mellow Mushroom
have anchored the ambitious American
Tobacco District for several years. This year, they are joined by
Tobacco Roadhouse, where bar seating overlooks the Bulls’ field.
The Chapel Hill beer scene continues to be centered on
Franklin Street, aimed at the collegiate crowd, with craft beer
variety represented by the two brewpubs—Top of the Hill and
Carolina Brewery. Moving south into Carrboro, the thirsty
beer lover finds the original Tyler’s and Belgian-influenced
Milltown.
The Raleigh craft beer scene is so well supported that it
gave rise to the first annual Raleigh Beer Week in late August,
with five local bars in the downtown area offering beer dinners
and cask-conditioned ales. A downtown pubcrawl would have
to include Busy Bee, Raleigh Times, Foundation, The
Landmark Bar, Flying Saucer, and Boundary. Or hop across to
the Powerhouse District and make the venerable 42nd Street
Oyster House your starting point for a
crawl that takes you into Glenwood
South.
And the choices are impressive when
you want to pick up a sixpack to go. Sam’s
Quick Stop in Durham enjoys a state-
wide reputation, and Hope Valley Bottle
Store offers good selections. Tyler’s string
of great beer bars has now given rise to a
bottle shop, Carrboro Beverage Co., serv-
ing Chapel Hill area; Peace Street Market
and Team Beverage keep Raleigh well
supplied. And, with many locations, both
Whole Foods and Total Wine reliably
stock good beer choices.
It was much easier to write an article
like this five years ago. With fewer beer
options available back then, a comprehen-
sive survey only took a couple hundred
words. One sign of the health of our beer
community today is that this list is bound
to be incomplete: there are new places out
there waiting to be discovered.

toes. The goal of this modestly-
hopped amber lager is to have you
explore the nuance of the sweet pota-

Obvious Spices. What is, after all, the
taste of a sweet potato? Carver asks
this question and encourges you to
explore the answer.

tea is all about contrasts (sweet tea
against vinegar or tangy tomato),
Hogwash accentuates subtle smoke.
Smoke on smoke….only in North
Carolina!

popularity. Offering low hop bitter-
ness, it is easy to enjoy. It pours very
hazy, with a light gold color... we say
it's like summertime in a glass. Bitter
orange peel and fresh coriander add
zest and depth to this refreshing beer.
Dark Cloud - Munich Dunkel -
Steeped in a long history dating back
hundreds of years, this "old-fashioned"
beer is again in vogue. Lager is the
German word meaning "to store," so
this beer ages three times longer than
our ales do. "Dunkel" means dark in
German, but don't let the color fool
you: it is by no means heavy, over-
bearing or bitter. In fact, it proves to
be a very drinkable session beer.

in the good 'ol USA... you'll proudly

7 New Belgium Brewing Co.
Fort Collins, CO
www.newbelgium.com
Fat Tire Amber Ale - American
Amber Ale - Named in honor of our
founder Jeff's bike trip through
Belgium, where he discovered that
Belgian beers use a far broader
palette of ingredients (fruits, spices,
esoteric yeast strains) than German or
English styles. Upon his return, Jeff
created Fat Tire and Abbey Belgian
Ale, (assuming Abbey would be his
big gun). Fat Tire's appeal quickly
became evident. People liked every-
thing about it. Except the name. Fat
Tire won fans with its sense of bal-
ance: toasty, biscuit-like malt flavors
coasting in equilibrium with hoppy
freshness.
1554 Enlightened Black Ale -
Belgian Dark Ale - This beer uses a
light lager yeast strain and dark
chocolaty malts to redefine what dark
beer can be. In 1997, a Fort Collins
flood destroyed the original recipe our
researcher, Phil Benstein, found in the
library. So Phil and brewmaster, Peter
Bouckaert, traveled to Belgium to
retrieve this unique style lost to the
ages. Their first challenge was deci-
phering antiquated script and outdat-
ed units of measurement, but trial and
error (and many months of in-house
sampling) culminated in 1554, a high-
ly quaffable dark beer with a moder-
ate body and mouthfeel.
Hoptober - Golden Ale - Five
hops and four malts make Hoptober
Golden Ale a veritable cornucopia of
the earth. Pale and wheat malt are
mashed with rye and oats to create a
medium-bodied ale with a creamy
mouthfeel. Centennial, Cascade,
Sterling, Willamette, and Glacier hops
form a bonfire of citrus notes, fruity
cheers and a bold finale.
Ranger IPA - American IPA - So,
here it finally is—New Belgium’s foray
into true American India pale ales.
Bring out the hops! This clear amber
beauty bursts at the starting gate with
an abundance of hops: Cascade (cit-
rus), Chinook (floral/citrus), and
Simcoe (fruity) lead off, with Cascade
added again for an intense dry hop
flavor. Brewed with pale and dark
caramel malts that harmonize the hop
flavor from start to finish, Ranger is a
sessionable splendor for all you
hopinistas. Thank your Beer Ranger!

holds this brew together. IBUs of
around 90 balance the brew which is
dry hopped to add an invigorating cit-
rus and floral aroma that lingers to the
end while complementing all that
malt. It is excellent with food as well
as served by itself or in the company
of a fine cigar.

Now what?
Okay, you’ve got your glass, you’re through the doors and you’re staring at a couple hundred beers. Now what? With a festival this ecumenical, you really can’t lose in your selection of a strategy. The only way you can go wrong is by sticking with old favorites for the night. Safe, but missing the whole point of the fest You need a strategy. First things first. Get to the closest booth with the shortest line and ask for whatever the person behind the booth likes best, and then, ask them why. Break the ice. There—you’re at the fest and you have a great beer. Now, give the next few hours of your life some careful thought. You’re in a room with a few hundred beers and, no, you can’t taste them all. Not an option. However, there are strategies to employ that will maximize your enjoyment—really simple strategies—and at least one of them will be just right for you. Let’s assume you have a favorite beer. Check this Beer Guide and find your brand or one like it, and note its style. Page through the Guide, looking for beers in the same style, check the booth number and start your hunt. Not too shabby, and everyone will be impressed that you’re on a mission. Of course, the opposite is equally fun. Seek out beers in styles that you’re not familiar with. For example, if you’re a hop head, then try brown ales and porters for a change. Or you might check out the wide variety in the wheat beer category. Yet a third strategy would be to follow a favorite flavor. Enjoy the sweetness of a malty beer, or the bitterness of pale and India pale ales, or the tartness of a fruit beer? Look in the style directory for other styles in that vein and check out the beer list for beers in those styles. Back and forth through the Beer Guide and you’ll end up with some wonderful beers to get on your next trip to the store. Frankly, I’m a fan of big malt and look to those styles. I tend to hang around with hop heads however, and they’re great at bird-dogging the IPAs and double IPAs. If this is all too structured for you, consider my favorite strategy for maximizing my festival pleasure. I’m not such a fan of crowds and extremely curious about beers I haven’t had. I tend to stay away from the crowded booths and visit booths representing breweries I’ve not met or it’s been awhile. Once there, I will go up their beer ladder from lightest bodied to heaviest. So, go forward and conquer. In your hands is your map and in front of you is the great unknown, beyond which lie monsters.

BEER EDUCATION

The Renaissance in Beer
he world of beer has changed dramatically. Thirty years ago, virtually every beer sold in the world belonged to a single category: the international light lager style, a pale, highly carbonated, clean and delicately flavored beer that is served very cold. Rival beers could be differentiated by their marketing, but rarely by their taste. After nearly a century of consolidation, only 15 percent of the 2,300 American breweries of the nineteenth century were still operating. The statistics were no different in Europe. Local and regional breweries were being swallowed by national brands and the decline in beer diversity and character was accelerating. Then the renaissance began. As has happened with wine, cheese, bread, coffee, chocolate and numerous other foods, traditional, locally-produced alternatives began to capture the beer drinking public’s imagination. In country after country, grass roots organizations moved to protect their favorite breweries and beers. In the United States, beginning in the 1960s, antiquarian Fritz Maytag took over the failing Anchor Brewery in San Francisco, reviving nineteenth century styles. A few years later, merchant marine Jack McAullife, who missed the ales he had encountered in Scotland, started the first new ale brewery in a century, also in California. Hop salesman Burt Grant, tired of the timid hop flavors, opened the first modern brewpub, featuring the hoppiest beers brewed in the States. Two physicists in Boulder, CO began the Boulder Brewery to make the British-style ales that they had enjoyed in England. And that was just the beginning. Homebrewers-turnedentrepreneurs decided that “going pro” with their homemade beer wasn’t such an outlandish idea. The giants (relatively speaking) of today’s craft beer world—breweries including Samuel Adams, Sierra Nevada, New Belgium, and Rogue—were all launched during the era of the hobbyist, when beer enthusiasts walked away from on-going careers to brew professionally. Today, U.S. cities boast a diversity of beer, both domestic and imported, unmatched anywhere else in the world. From an all-time low of 41 in 1981, this country now boasts over 1,500 breweries of all sizes. With a cry of “Drink local!” microbrewers and pubbrewers produced over nine million barrels of handcrafted beer last year, permanently changing the beer landscape. Light lagers still dominate our shelves, but our brewers are crafting more than 70 other beer styles, some traditional, others entirely new creations, each with its own distinctive character and profile.

The Revolution Goes On Craft brewing itself has changed over the past thirty years, as craft brewers rebelled first against the reigning brewing paradigm but then went on to innovate new styles all their own. English-style ales, the original beers on these shores— George Washington was especially fond of porter—were supplanted in the nineteenth century by lager beers from the brewing traditions of Germany, Austria and the Czech Republic. It was the sparkling, pale beer of Bohemian that inspired brewery owners called Pabst, Schlitz, Busch or Schmidt to build their empires. So, in the earliest days of the “beer revolution,” craft brewers reacted against the “mainstream” lager tradition of Central Europe, and embraced the ale-brewing heritage of Britain. Pale ale, India pale ale, porter and stout are still prominent in the style rotation at any brewpub. The next wave brought wheat beers—refreshing, fruitinfused, and thought to appeal especially to female drinkers. American-style wheat beers reinvented the authentic German-styled originals, with their characteristic banana, clove and bubblegum notes. American wheat beer was craft beer, but it was safe. As American brewers made traditional styles their own, their tendency was to increase the intensity of every trait: in particular, escalating hop bitterness and high alcohol came to characterize the boldest U.S. offerings—sometimes at the expense of balance. The double or imperial India pale ale was born, followed shortly by the “imperialization” of a range of other styles. Alcohol content records were—and continue to be—broken by so-called “extreme” beers. Meanwhile, the brewing styles of another great brewing nation, Belgium, moved into prominence. A few U.S. breweries—New Belgium, Allagash, Ommegang—committed to brewing entirely in the Belgian vein, but it’s a rare microbrewery or brewpub that doesn’t offer a witbier, dubbel or saison, all thanks to the Belgians. Two new trends vie for dominance at the cutting edge of American brewing today: barrel aged beers, that take flavor from wooden casks already used to house wine or spirits; and deliberately soured beers, which offer a completely different palate from almost any other convention. Both styles are gaining in popularity. On decade into the new millennium, the American brewing community is diverse, professional, adventurous— and an accepted part of the landscape. Specialty beers are no longer an oddity: even beer drinkers who stick to the mainstream styles realize that their choices are much wider. With convenience stores and gas stations including pale ales and Belgian-style wit beers in their coolers, there’s no going back on beer diversity.
