A Beer-Lovers Paradise
Wilmington, North Carolina has gained notoriety in recent years for the proliferation of new breweries that have opened in the area, in part due to a 2006 bill that got rid of the alcohol by volume limit on beers produced in the state from 6% to 15%. This increase helped open the door for a wider variety of craft-brewed beers, and led to a huge increase in the state’s number of microbreweries.
