US - South North Carolina Particulars

I-40 from Asheville to TN is a crap drive fwiw. Not much for bottleshops in Asheville since tasty closed. App Vintner is maybe 15 minutes from I-26, not sure how the selection is, haven’t been in years. The other ok option is a semi-sketchy gas station called Hot Spot on Leicester Hwy. They usually have a good selection of NC stuff. It’s 5-10 min from 240/26 interchange.

Zillicoah isn’t letting kids in, so that might hamper your pickup plans. If you’re going to stop at Zebulon, say hi. I’m usually there on Fridays.
Great info, thanks. I would probably just be doing a pick up at Zillicoah or anywhere else for that matter, so that's probably still in play. If we do go for the detour option, I would probably add on the half hour to head to Sevierville through GSM National Park. 40->19->441, it looks like. Assume that is a much nicer drive?
 
Am I not included in the DM sliding? Well now this just sounds weird.

I don’t think they’ll even let you on the property with kids in the car. They have a person id’ing etc at gate into the lot.

Shitty part of I-40 is from Asheville to NC / TN line. Probably doesn’t bother normal people, but it makes me bonkers. Lots of truck traffic and dbag tourons make it hard to go above 45-50 most days.

Nothing here beer wise I’d put my family through extra road time for.
 
So, looks like we're leaving a day early and spending a night in Asheville to do something at the Biltmore. Can't believe I forgot to ask, but any bottle shops in Asheville that might have some Fantome?

I think there’s a few tomes at the gas station, too. I’ll look if I make a can run later. He was supposed to get me a case of Oxbow farmhouse pale cans and I never heard from him.

Hope you aren’t doing Biltmore tomorrow. Weather is going to be shit.
 
They’re not terrible, but really just watered down wine with herbs added.

I actually have been meaning to get up there to try it...most of the guest taps up until now have been haze.

So the kids gonna be Dookies or what?
Have you ever heard someone describe Cary as "cool" before?
