Beer Tours: Why are you still sitting there?
With fall quickly approaching and the weather becoming much more hospitable to movement outdoors, I’ve been thinking a great deal about travel. And not just a trip to the beach or any other normal tourist destination, rather a sampling of what this great country has to offer in the way of beer. All beer. Because as much can be learned from the process of macro brewers as can be gleaned from the passion of the most devoted micro brewery.
Now, we all know there are certain regions which offer much more of a selection than others. Think of them as cornucopias of brewing establishments; Portland, Asheville, San Diego, and the greater Denver area all come to mind. However, there were 1,989 recognized breweries in the US as of 2011 (Brewer’s Association), so you could start almost anywhere in this great country and work your way to anywhere else and put together a phenomenal trip.
Personally, I want to experience all that I haven’t in the beer world, craft or otherwise. I, also, have a great desire to discuss processes and practices with every brewmaster, production manager, sales director, marketing rep, and distributor I can, so any trip I take would be as much business as pleasure (ok, maybe it’s more like 60/40). The point is that I love everything there is about beer and want to familiarize myself with every aspect of it.
Below you’ll find a list of sites which may aid you in your quest to put together the perfect beer tour. Also, check out the Craft Beer Directory which is a great resource for finding out which breweries are located in your area.
May you fare well in your journey and remember that your feet will always bring you to where your heart is.
