It has come to my attention that there are a few beer drinkers that frequent these forums. What you may not know is that there are very few publicly traded "craft brewers". There are 3 to be exact with the most well known (and a Wall St. Darling) being Samuel Adams.

Recently, a North Carolina Brewer, AMB, Appalachian Mountain Brewery (for all you northerners - the "a's" are pronounced with a short 'a' sound) became the 3rd when they went public with IPO of .20. The price has reached as high as $9.00 but currently hovers around $5.00. The symbol they now use is "HOPS".

They have excellent beers and we keep a rolling stock of growlers with some of our favorites. In fact, they have a beer to suit most any taste. If any of you are in Boone, I highly recommend a stop in and taste test. Their "flights" are a good way to sample the current "on tap" selections. The Brewery is located just off the main drag just across the creek from the mall.

We know the brewmaster. SO.....a few of the growlers have been gratis.
