Dale Katechis of Oskar Blues Brewing Tells You Where to Go: Pisgah National Forest in North Carolina
"This is my go-to spot. Miles of slippery, rooty, rocky singletrack that kicks my ass on a mountain bike, and the music and vibe are just killer," says Dale Katechis, the founder of Oskar Blues Brewing. The area has a strong craft-beer culture, with 21 breweries in Asheville alone. My visits to the Mountain Song Festival moved me to build a brewery at the forest's gates in Brevard — where you can ride the trails right to the Tasty Weasel Taproom."
