    I'm heading down to a cabin in the mountains near Tiger, GA this weekend. What's good down there? Preferably something I can find at the grocery store.

    You will probably only be able to get some year round offerings from Sweetwater, Terrapin ,and maybe Red Hare. I don't really get up into the mountains that far so I can't say for sure...Good luck!

    Terrapin & Sweetwater are some of GA's best and you'll be able to find them at any store in GA probably

    How are you getting there? You're probably better off picking up something on the way (in Atlanta, Asheville, Greenville, SC . . .)

    driving straight down from CNY, we'll go right through Asheville.

    He may be in a bind, cause he's way behind and he's looking to make a deal....

    I would stop in Asheville at either Appalachian Vintner or Bruisin' Ales. Lots of good NC breweries and more Sweetwater/Terrapin than you'll find around Tiger. As mentioned, you could probably find Sweetwater and Terrapin closer to where you're staying, but I wouldn't bet on it (and what you find might not be fresh).
