For this week's review, I take my taste buds to the great brewing state of North Carolina, which produces some of the country's finest craft beer. In particular, Asheville is the state's mecca, with more than 10 breweries turning out scrumptious beer -- like this British-style ESB from French Broad. It's approachable and appealing, with a nice mix of caramel and bitterness wrapped up in a 5.2 percent ABV package. Curious? Drink up the full review at Slashfood!
