Grab an AMB Lager and a Getaway

Experience the Mountains in Style with Appalachian Mountain Brewery’s Summer Essentials

As the weather heats up, there is no place like the mountains for a summer getaway. Nestled in North Carolina’s High Country, Appalachian Mountain Brewery (AMB) has been dedicated to brewing award-winning craft beer and cider in Boone, NC since 2014. The brewery is minutes from dozens of trails, alpine lakes, and sweeping views of the Appalachian Mountains. And when the folks at AMB aren’t brewing the latest hazy IPA or green tea and strawberry-infused cider, they know a thing or two about crafting the perfect outdoor adventure. The Mountains are calling, so pack your bags, grab a brew, and check out AMB’s Top Four Summer Essentials for a Summer Mountain Getaway

The Gear: The Molly Tote Bag by Tsuga

Great getaways start with great gear, and our friends at Tsuga have created the perfect tote for weekend adventures, whether you’re heading up to the mountain or grabbing produce at the farmer’s market.  Born in Boone, NC, Tsuga makes multifunctional outdoor gear with an eye for quality and craftsmanship.

The Luxury Item: Alpine Hammock

Finding comfort in nature is always a win, and we never leave home without our Alpine Hammock. This hammock is lightweight, versatile, and long-lasting. Even better, it’s made by Winston-based Alpine Leisure Co, a company that employs veterans and sources local materials to benefit the community and positively impact the environment.

The Location: Tree House Geodesic Dome by Glamping Unplugged

You gotta find a great spot to put that hammock up, and nothing beats the setting of our favorite place to lay our heads in the High Country: by Glamping Unplugged’s Treehouse Dome. With GU, you can book a stay at a luxury, eco-friendly geodesic dome overlooking a state-stocked trout stream. Located 15 minutes from Boone, NC, Glamping Unplugged offers two Domes on 8.5 acres with 1200+ feet of creek frontage and access to swimming holes, fishing spots, hikes and waterfalls.

The Refreshment: AMB American Lager

Last but not least, all getaways need a beer, and our summer go-to is AMB’s gold medal-winning craft Lager.  This classic German/American Lager is one crushable light beer. No nonsense, nothing flashy, just a simple beer done right. For casual beer fans and beer aficionados alike, it is super sessionable with a crisp taste and clean aesthetic. This perfectly refreshing lager, which won a gold medal at the 2018 Great American Beer Festival Competition, clocks in at 4.2% ABV and is available in super-portable 12-ounce and 16-ounce cans.
