Last year, you may remember I posted about The Great NC BBQ Map. It was the brainchild of Amanda Fisher and Paul Bright of Charlotte, North Carolina and the map is a comprehensive guide to the best BBQ in the state. As if I couldn't love that map any more, Amanda and Paul have added two more guides to their lineup...the first of which is The Great NC Beer Map. But of course...
This is another comprehensive map and guide that showcases every craft brewery and major beer festival in North Carolina. Each of the over 180 breweries listed contain information on types of beer offered, food availability, game availability, pet friendliness and hours of operation. I think of my brother-in-law in Boston who loves beer with a passion of a true, native Bostonian and would be overjoyed to have one of these maps in hand. Maybe it'll be a way to get him to visit the South more...I'm buying one.
As Amanda and Paul continue to grow their map empire, they just released their Charlotte Adventure Map. This engaging map for locals and tourists alike is hand drawn and painted in both watercolor and pen and ink.
As they love their hometown city, Amanda and Paul took much time and effort to make this map useful, interactive and inspiring. There are 140 listings, 26 itineraries plus 12 day trip suggestions. This map is such a great idea to have around the house for guests or as a Charlotte resident, to inspire you to try out a new adventure in your backyard you never knew existed. As you know, I love maps and continue to make them as well, so I feel a kindred connection to these two. I hope they continue to have adventures and share their knowledge and insider tips with the masses. Start your adventure with them, here.
