I received the June issue of Beer Advocate in today's mail. On the first page is an editorial by editors the Alstrom brothers, commenting on the annual Brewer's Association list of the fifty top breweries in the US based on sales. The editors created their own list based on ratings, and number 32 on the list is Pisgah Brewing, Black Mountain, NC.
Congrats to "Pisgah Dave" Quinn and Jason Caughman. Given that their brewery has been in operation for only three years, this is praise indeed. Keep up the good work guys.
The only other North Carolina brewery on the list is Duck Rabbit Craft Brewery, coming in at number 39. We in NC should be proud of our craft beer industry. They can compete with any breweries in the country.
