Spencer discusses the beer and wine industry in the state, as well as new emerging distilleries. The state has strict laws that liquor cannot flow as freely as beer and wine. The state also has a reputation for making illegal moonshine, but anyone with the right permits can distil liquor.

Now there are 14 distilleries in North Carolina, compared to 146 wineries and 82 breweries.
