In developing the cover story this week, which was both enjoyable and frustrating all at the same time, it was hard not to think about how different the two cities – Greensboro and Winston- Salem – operate. I’m not leaving High Point out of the mix for any particular reason other than it’s sort of the middle child as it relates to this conversation....

Let me be the first to admit that I have thoroughly enjoyed the craft beer movement. I may have gained 20 pounds from drinking 8 and 9 percent beer on a regular basis, but as Roy Williams would say, daggumit, I enjoyed every sip. In working on my contribution to this week’s beer issue, I learned all about hops....
