Two years ago, North Carolina cracked Untappd’s “Top 10 Cities of 2021” with two cities—Asheville and Charlotte. Both powerhouses in their own right, these cities have helped propel the entire state of North Carolina to the number ten spot with just over 1.7M check-ins in 2022.

For many years, Asheville ranked as one of the top beer cities in America, clocking in with the eighth most venue check-ins at 226.5k in 2021. Nestled in the western North Carolina Blue Ridge Mountains, Asheville has made a name for itself as a craft beer mecca with popular spots such as Burial Beer Co., Zilicoah Beer Co., Hi-Wire Brewing, and more.

Recently Charlotte has attracted renowned breweries like Weathered Souls, Hi-Wire, and Monday Night.

All make North Carolina one serious drinking state.

Here’s a peek at what beers people have checked in the most in North Carolina for the last ninety days.
