If you're a beer lover in the Piedmont Triad, there's a good chance you've tried award-winning beer from Four Saints Brewing Company.

The brewery is located in the heart of Asheboro, within miles of the North Carolina Zoo and local Asheboro businesses and artists. It's the only brewery in Randolph County.

In fact, one of the brewery's seasonal beers, the Red Wolf IPA, is made in collaboration with the North Carolina Zoo Foundation. A portion of proceeds go toward red wolf conservation, McClosky said.

It's also halfway between Charlotte and Raleigh, making it a must-stop for commuters and tourists.
