My girlfriend and I are going through all the above mentioned on a little roadtrip next week, and have a fairly good idea of where we will go (thanks to all the threads about this type of trip), but just wanted to run it past the people who might know best if there is something we are missing, or anything we should consider (such as restaurants, activities or even beer to seek out in the bars, brewpubs or stores while in the area). Also there is a location specific question or two that I would love to figure out as well. I understand that not all these cities are located in this subgroup, so I posted it in the southern region as well. All help/recommendation is greatly appreciated. Lexington- Buffalo Trace Distillery Country Boy West 6th Stella's Deli Q- Where can I find a bottle of Pappy? I heard that it is not always available at BT. Asheville- Pisgah Wicked Weed Wedge 12 Bones Appalachian Vintner Thirsty Monk Early Girl Eatery Q- We want to do some hiking, where is the best place to check out that isn't far out of the city? Read about the deep gap trail and Mt. Craig, is there a better option? Also wanted to hike in the Nantahala forest. Thoughts? Atlanta- Holeman and Finch Flip Burger Hankook Taqueria Brick Store Pub The porter beer bar Whecking bar brewery Hop City Q- What are some non-beer-specific activities that we should do while in the area? Nashville- Mitchells Deli Yazoo Jackalope Turtle Anarchy Jacks BBQ Cold Springs Arnolds Country Kitchen Prince's Hot Chicken Hattie B's Las Paletas-Crema-Mikes Ice Cream-Jeni's Q- Where could I find calfkiller beer? Yazoo won't be open when we are there, where should I find it? What breweries do I have to hit and what should I skip? We want to see a show. Where is the best venue to experience the town? Louisville- New Albanian Against the Grain Sergio's Holy Grale Cake Flour Lynn's Paradise Cafe Hammerhead Blind Pig/Meat Q- Where should we eat? Any distilleries I should be looking into?
