I like your style. HF Anniversary? I'd love to buy you a pour of Abner or something.
If only... I have grad school graduation that weekend. I was hoping that Spontaneous would be released early enough in the month to warrant a trip. If that trip doesn't work, then definitely June for CD6 or Flora!
Drove from Columbia, SC to FFF for DLD. So, about 1000 miles, if that counts.
No. Liquor Locker.
Great topic!!! haha. i recently drove 70 miles one way to grab some Flying dog El dorado and Allagash Four from probably the best place to get craft in Maryland, perhaps the east coast. (Dawson's liquors)
that's like finding white castle. long journey but once you're there....YOU'RE THERE lol
I just drove 3 hours from Chicagoland to Wisconsin for New Glarus.
90 minutes each way driving on Interstate 4 to Tampa for Cigar City every few weeks or so..
Tasting Room visits and there are several beers they only distribute in Tampa that I pick up like Tocobaga Red ale
Drove from Milwaukee to Madison (about 160 miles round trip) one day to pick up some Founders Blushing Monk. In hindsight... I REGRET NOTHING!
germany for some weizen biers and glasses, when i was younger
Round trip of ~7-8 hours driving to VT from Boston to hit the Alchemist and Hill Farmstead in one day.
Flying to Copenhagen to pick up Blabaer back in June.
and I sincerely appreciate you doing this!
Farthest I've driven just for beer was 9 hours (from Amherst to Hill Farmstead and from Tallahassee to Cigar City). I've made both trips twice. As far as flying, I went to Amsterdam and besides a vacation after the first semester of law school with a friend while my dad did work my equally important goal was to bring back Cantillon.
Although I'm not driving, I'm going to be leaving Paris for a few days and head to Belgium/Holland to visit at least one Trappist brewery, trade for some Westvleteren 12 and other beers, and purchase as much beer as I can to take back to the states with me. If it weren't for Belgium's rich brewing culture, I'd probably head to Germany for those few days instead (and yes, I realize Germany has a good good brewing history too, but...), even though it's a win/win situation either way and I feel you can't go wrong traveling throughout Western Europe, beer or not.
Flew from Hartford to Chicago, rented a car, and drove to the Great Taste Of The Midwest in Madison. Worth every second.
There's a seat in my car for you next time I go.
an hour, but i would prob drive 2-3 hours for heady topper or pliny
After reading this I really feel lazy for never making the 3.5hr drive.
probably 4 hours from Kitchener Ontario to Novi Michigan, which I happen to be going to for a sci fi convention in two weeks.
I run in the harpoon road race every year. 5 miles, but beer at the finish line is well worth it.
I took a red eye from Honolulu to LAX Friday night. Arrived Saturday morning picked up car and drove to Alesmith in San Diego to pick up BA Kopi Speedway and BA Decadence, had a pint and a taster. Drove to Anaheim to The Bruery to pick up the rest of my 2012 Allocations, had a glass of Imperial Lokal Red. Boxed up all bottles and drove back to LAX to catch the last flight home to Honolulu. Took about 21 hours about 5200+ miles of flying and driving. Thank god the wife works in the airline industry.
i havent read the entire thread because its not so intelligent... but the furthest i've driven was about 1/8 mile, because it was too cold to walk....
Ok, this goes against the thread, BUT...we drove a few hundred miles, from Vegas to San Diego one weekend for the kids' bootcamp graduation and got tons of So Cal beers while there. Got some RRsours, Pliny, Blind Pig, etc.
My Wife THINKS the trip was for the sole purpose of attending the kids' Marine graduation, and incidentally, beer.
But we know better, don't we?
Actually, 777 miles one way.
3 1/2 hours to Selinsgrove PA.
Then there was the excursion to Philly for Younger at Monks which was one heck of an adventure...
Seriously considering the drive from ATL to Tampa for some CCB brews here soon.
drove from minneapolis to Chicago. bought 13 cases of beer, 6 pizzas from gino's east, and 4lbs of italian beef from big Al's.
The farthest I've driven for a beer run is 45 minutes south to KZoo when Black Note 4 packs came out.
I don't get out much.
When I lived in Germany I drove 5 hours to go to Brussels a couple times. The best is when I went to 3 fountains for two boxes of Armand spring. I went other times by train as well.
Pittsburgh to DLD and back. It was about 10 hours each way if I remember correctly.
Going to CHI on Tuesday early on purpose to make the drive to Three Floyds, which will be my longest drive.
We just got back from a 20+ hour drive from Michigan to Colorado and back. We were there visiting one of my girlfriend's friends, but I was there for another purpose....SHHHhhhh!!!!
From NW Subs of Chicago to FFF. Took a little over an hour.
I swear half the people in the liquor isle at Woodmans in Kenosha are Illinoisans there buying New Glarus.
5 1/2 Hours from Columbus, through Kalamazoo to visit Bells, then finished in Grand Rapids for the KBS release. Beer is the only thing worth going through MI for. O-H
3 hours one way to NewGlarus. Will be making the trip this Saturday as well. IA makes a man (or woman) drive for the good stuff.
Hour and a half round trip for half case of Bourbon County Coffee. Plan on making a trip to VT by the end of May.
Dark Lord/Darkness/KBS and other releases. never more than 1000 miles each way though.
Did arrange a road trip to coincide with a couple releases, 6800 miles total, but there were other purposes of the trip too.
Got rid of previous car at 126K miles...approximately 55% were beer-related road trips.
Every couple months I drive 125 miles to Louisville to load up because I can't find what I want in Evansville, IN.
