Attracted by the idea of increased brand awareness and selling directly to consumers, breweries tackle growth by opening multiple locations in their hometowns. We look at examples in San Diego, Grand Rapids, Mich., and Asheville, N.C.
In 1513, 74 years before the settlers started brewing beer from corn in Virginia, Spain’s Ponce de León landed on the coast of modern-day Florida. St. Augustine may be steeped in centuries of history, but the nation’s oldest city is starting a new chapter as craft beer takes root there.
Savannah is a European-influenced city that’s heavy on charm and good times. Stroll the cobblestone streets, explore the notable squares, and visit the quirky bars that dot downtown—all without having to be beer-less between stops, since open containers are permitted in the 2 square-miles of the Historic District.
