The AERE annual meeting was in Asheville, NC a couple of years ago. I went to too many sessions so had to go back last week and do some things that I missed. On my New Year's "hike" I saw five waterfalls, Looking Glass, Moore Cove, Sliding Rock, Slick Rock and Jackson, in the Pisgah Ranger District. Here is a shot of Jackson:

Over three days I was able to squeeze in flights at, in chronological order, Lexington Avenue Brewery (6 beers), Brevard Brewing Company (5 beers), Wedge Brewing Company (9 beers, 1 cider, picture to the right), and Pisgah Brewing Company (mercifully, only 4 beers).
