In celebration of me reaching 5 million views on my YouTube Channel, we wanted to do something very special and just a little bit different. The Andy Griffith show is one of my all time favorite TV shows and so we thought it would be neat to go and spend a night at the Andy Griffith Home Place which is the house that Andy grew up in. This was a neat experience for me and I hope you all will enjoy this tour of this special landmark in Mount Airy, NC.

The NCBeerGuys are drinking something new for them, a cider, and particularly the McRitchie Hard Cider out of McRitchie Winery and Ciderworks of Thurmond, just north of Elkin. McRitchie Ciderworks says it was North Carolina's first cidery and they use only North Carolina mountain grown heirloom apples. The style of McRitchie Hard Cider is billed as "similar to that traditionally found in the Brittany region of northern France, a sharp, dry, brilliantly clear sparkling beverage." The apples are handpicked at an orchard located in the Brushy Mountains of North Carolina. Each blend is selected from a variety of heritage mountain apples with the goal of creating a structured, elegant cider that captures the essence of a fresh picked apple. This is a true artisan product of North Carolina. Learn more about the NCBeerGuys...

In the mountain village of Elkin, Jack Mantero and his family have created a local institution known as Fiddles Pub, names for the musical instruments that decorate its walls. If you're ever in town, you can't miss their famous brisket!
