Your bladder must have been the size of a freaking zeppelin
I am the beer specialist at a liqour store in MD. We have 2. And my boss wants $50 each. Which I think is a bit too steep.
If "major detours" count, then it's four-plus hours out of our way to hit The Alchemist on the way from Cape Cod to Chicago.
Otherwise, then it's three hours from Chicago to New Glarus. And two days from now it'll be the same time from Chicago to Grand Rapids.
approximately 6.5 hours, about 410 miles, Pittsburgh to Kalamazoo.
19 Hours from Chicago to tampa for Hunahpu's Day.
Instead of flying from Indy to Reno for a hiking trip I drove so I could go to Oskar Blues, Great Divide, Falling Rock Tap House, and several bottle store in Denver. Bought shitloads more in Cali. Coming back I must have been deranged since I drove right past the FFF exit coming from Chicago and never thought to go there. D'Oh
In July same deal except it's hiking the Long Trail and going to the big VT breweries.
Whoops, there was 1 piss break on the way up. I meant no breaks for merely sitting around, stretching, etc.
5 hours to Foothills for Sexual Chocolate. Planning to beat that next year for 2014 Hunah (sad to have missed it this year)
Round trip of about 460 miles...from central Iowa to Hudson, Wisconsin.
410 miles, Dallas to OKC and back, just to get some delicious Prairie Artisan Ales (and other goodies OKC gets that TX doesn't)
Trip my wife agreed to today : Pittsburgh to Cleveland (Brew Kettle & Great Lakes), to Grand Rapids (Founders) to Kalamazoo (Bells) to Munster (FFF) to Chicago for a few nights (where we'll do whatever it takes to make up for going to half a dozen breweries) then Columbus on the way back to Pittsburgh.
Her Subaru is going to dragging all the way back >_>.
14 hours each way to Vermontland from southern VA several times and on-going. Helps to have family and grown up in NH too.
Flew from SC to Belgium; visited Cantillon and St. Sixtus; brought back some Fou and plenty of Westy 12.
From North Glendale to the Whole Foods Market in Chandler. Bout an hourish drive across the Phoenix metro area, pretty crazy I know. Got to have Ten Fidy on nitro, and found an awesome Chinese place. If you live in the area and like Chinese food check out a place called C-FU....seriously...
Flew to texas for the holdiays and happened to bring back some limited released Jester Kings...killed two birds with one stone, not sure if it counts but TSA was curious about my bags xray and had to inspect.
I haven't been in the game long enough to really embark....with that being said, about 25 minutes.
only about 3 hours to Russian River. Most the Nor cal breweries are all within 5 hours of each other.
My normal beer run is about 30-45 minutes away. When you live out in BFE, there's a price to pay.
10 hours, NC to Tampa for Hunahpu!
Making a day trip to grand rapids from cleveland. Be about ten to eleven hours in the car for a 12pk of KBS which I get to keep 8 of....stopping at 8 stores so far. Hoping to find some gems out tree on the road!
Drove about 7 hours round trip from Luxembourg to Brussels when they released Fou Foune last year. Wasn't in the travel plans but made it work as soon as i saw it was ready! €2 pours of lambic and €8 Fou how could I not!?
Actually if I'm driving far, hundreds of miles...it turns into more than a beer run. I find other things to do also: camping, restaurants, sites, etc...
540 milesto bear republic and of course we stopped at 21 amendment, anchor steam, lagunitas and russian river. spend 700 bucks or so on beer that weekend. worth it...
Nothing too special. I regularly drive from DC for Troegs Splinter Days (Blue and Black) and for Sexual Chocolate Days (NC). That's it.
1200 miles (round-trip)
now, my wife would mention that technically we were making the trip for the wedding of one of her best friends. she would also be speaking for herself.
Does flying from Boston to San Francisco and driving to Santa Rosa count? It was for the Pliny the Younger release. Main reason for the trip. It counts to me
Just did this trip last week. Brilliant!
Checking it on united...going to be epic
just 90-100 miles ... from Bryan-College Station to Houston
that run to the Hay Merchant on Sunday afternoons and Specs near downtown when it opens Monday morning is awfully damn fun.
328 miles from Seattle to Bend OR. When I see the number 328 I think to myself "That's really not that far, and I should make the trip more often!"
I'm probably doing the same exact thing in a few months. Can't wait!
11 hours round trip for hunahpu.
If you want any beers from Southern California...
Some of you are crazy! Although, only driving distances for the sole purpose of attaining beer should count! Haha.
Farthest as of now, only 90 minutes for my 2 bricks of westy 12
However I am planning a 4 to 5 hour trip through Michigan this May. Should be fun.
Trips don't count but what about detours? As in, I drove from San Antonio to San Francisco... and made a completely unnecessary stop in Albuquerque in order to visit La Cumbre? ...and then went from the I-5 to the 101 in order to swing by Paso Robles for a visit to Firestone Walker! ...otherwise my longest "beer only" road trip was from the bay area to visit Sierra Nevada for a birthday celebration. Maybe 3 hours on the road, tops.
dat Beatification, about 7 hours driving, probs more.
or DLD, does that even count?
700 miles roundtrip to Barrelworks in Buellton, CA (Firestone Walker). Luckily I have buddies in San Luis Obispo so the trip is always broken up nicely. Sacramento to Paso Robles to the standard Firestone, then to SLO to hang and then grab the SLO friends to head to Buellton for Barrelworks, sometimes we'll keep heading south and go to The Bruery. California is great.
Allows you who wears the pants in this relationship???
Going to DFH from Baltimore (174 miles, including the Brewpub and the next day travel to Evolution and Burley Oak, which are on the way home) on the 29th.. However, I really want to take a bottle shop detour to State Line Liquors, which adds 33 miles.
I drove 275 miles one way from Greensboro, N.C. to N. Charleston, S.C. for Brewvival 2013 and it was worth every single mile. About to depart this Thursday (3-28) on a western N.C. Brewery run that will take in 25 different Breweries/Brew Pubs and will be about 540 miles round trip.
