My wife and I will be flying into Charlotte (from California) in December for 5 days. I am trying to figure out how to best split up the 5 days and 4 nights between possible locations. I would like to limit driving, not sure if Raleigh fits into that. My wife doesn't drink beer but does like the laid-back brewery atmosphere and good food. So recommendations other than beer would be great as well. From my research it looks like top Beer prospects are Heist/NoDa in Charlotte Wicked Weed/Burial in Asheville Foothill in Winston Salem Fonta Flora in Morganton Musts- Visiting with friends who live in Mooresville. Visiting Sierra Nevada in Fletcher - hopefully to take one of the longer tours if I can get tickets. Thanks for your recommendations.
