    I'm headed down to Charleston, SC tomorrow morning for a few nights than headed to Asheville, NC. Most likely going to be in SC Sat-Tues and then Ashevillle for a night or two.

    Just looking for some advice on anywhere to stop in either location and places in between. Any advice would be appreciated.

    How the trip ended up:

    Charleston- Closed For Business was a great beer bar, it had a good atmosphere with an incredible beer selection. I was able to have Founders Breakfast Stout on draught for the first time. Mellow Mushroom on King Street also had a very good selection of draught and bottles.

    Asheville- My wife and I loved our first experience in "Beer City USA". Wicked Weed had amazing beer. I talked to two of the brewers and they said they generally have any where from 15-20 beers availble on tap at once, which i thought to be amazing from a small brew pub. They were out of the majority of their barrell aged series which was a bummer, i really wanted to try the sour cherry stout. Wedge Brewery in West Asheville had decent beer, the outside patio was a cool hangout with people playing corn hole and having a few pints. We also visited Thirsty Monk and Barley's Taproom both of which had 30+ beers on tap. I want to head back there very soon.

    Roanoake- We stopped for lunch at Blue 5 for lunch on the way home. Very cool spot with guitars hanging from the ceiling. They had 46 draught lines with a very craft centric approach. Seems like a great place to drink a beer and see some live music.

    All in all a very good trip.
