Beer and baseball: Two great pleasures invite you to visit Fayetteville, North Carolina, a three-time winner of the All-American City Award from the National Civic League. The growing brewery scene keeps exciting suds on draft while the Fayetteville Woodpeckers—the Single A Houston Astros affiliate—deliver hit after hit of on-field entertainment. The breweries keep the taps open year-round so you can savor a pint any day of the year, but visit during baseball season and it’s like hitting a walk-off grand slam.
Nashville Beer from History Press tells the story of brewing and beer in Music City, beginning with the first German brewers who moved to Nashville from Cincinnati as part of the work force to build the needed new infrastructure after the city was named the capital of Tennessee. The Gerst Brewery dominated the industry throughout the first half of the 20th century, surviving Prohibition by selling non-alcoholic malt beverages as well as one of the first versions of Orange Crush soda.
