Sierra Nevada NC

Road Trip

Today we took a break from our intensive photo scanning, family history writing activities and joined friends Mary and Steve for a journey to Mills River, NC snd a tour of the state of the art Sierra Nevada brewing facility. Besides the opportunity to learn more about the history of this family owned and run brewing operation and beer brewing in general, we got to enjoy the product from sipping Pale Ale while watching the movie to sampling eight different styles at the end of the tour to sharing a Porter while enjoying small plates in the Taproom afterwards. The tour requires advance reservations but is well worth the effort. Thanks M&S, for making this adventure happen. We had a great time!
