    Heading to Florida in a couple of days, plan on picking up some CCB bubs, and possibly go to the brewpub!

    Heading to Naples in July. Going to get 3 suitcases at local goodwill and bring back as much jai-alai as I can fit in each of them without going over the weight limit.

    You should take a ride to the Miami area and visit Funky Buddha Brewery in Oakland Park. You'll be glad you did.

    Lots of fun in store. Going to visit Funky Buddha next week. Then a swing through Vermont (Alchemist, Hill F.) and Maine (Allagash, Maine Brewing Co.) the week after that. Then northern Ohio in late July--Hoppin' Frog, Brew Kettle and Fat Heads.

    Dang. I'm making myself thirsty.

    Best man at my best friend's wedding over the 4th weekend out in the DC area, so i plan on snagging some offerings out there, as well as on the drive back to StL if there's anything on the way.
    Then in August I have a two week break from school and my other best friend and I are going to go camping up in Wisconsin, where I also plan on stocking up. Pretty excited about both of those.

    I just found out that I will be driving a U-Haul from Boston back to Southern California in July. Once I get more information, a "Road trip across America/where to go" thread will henceforth be made.

    As someone who took a 2 week road trip from Boston to San Diego only a few years ago I may be of some assistance.

    Hitting a few local breweries like town hall, fitger's and toppling goliath. Nothing crazy but all good stuff as fall approaches and we get ready for Darkness Day!

    Just came back from a trip to The Bruery and Savor. Not doing much for the next couple weeks, but heading back to Southern California in August and plan on going to The Bruery again to pick up my RS allocations followed by Alpine, Ballast Point, Hess, Societe along with a bunch of beer bars. The week after coming back from there I'll be working in Maine and will likely visit Hill Farmstead and Allagash depending on what they have for sale at that time.

    I have no idea what's going on after that, but I don't think I'll want to do anything else... or at least my wallet wont.

    Awesome. I'm helping a friend's sister (and her family) move, so unfortunately it isn't exactly a leisure trip. That being said, I am going to snatch up as much stuff as possible (especially some Gandhi Bot and Lunch while in Boston.) Once I get more information, I'd love to message you. Thanks a lot.

    I want to go on a beer trip but I can't decide what route I want to take or if I could even do it any time soon because it looks like I'm going to work every weekend from here until, uh, the end of December. But if I do go I'm debating hitting up four or five of the Michigan brewers - namely Founders, Bells, Dark Horse, and Jolly Pumpkin - or if I want to swing around and hit Southern Tier, Troegs, and Dogfish Head over the span of a weekend. Heavily leaning on the former right now.

    I'm living with my girlfriend in Florence for the summer, and next week we're flying to Belgium to hit up Cantillon and 3 Fonteinen.

    I'm pissing myself in excitement just thinking about it.

    Savoring my last three weeks in Brussels and trying to find a way to bring as much home with me as I can so I don't immediately die of withdrawals. Then a little road trip to NOLA with some buddies to celebrate our (hopefully) safe return from foreign lands.

    Probably gonna hit up Salzburg again near the end of August/beginning of September. Pretty city, beautiful mountains nearby, and most importantly Augustiner brau. Will also bring back some cases of fantastic German beer for less than 20 euros a pop.

    I'll be on tour through early August, spending (usually) a couple nights in a handful of cities from all corners of the USA. Looking forward to continuing to walk into bars I've never heard of and ordering beer I've never even seen before.

    + 1 for a trip to Vermont. Will by my first time trying HT and Lawsons, AND HF! Wow, you wouldn't know it, but I grew up not to far away in Northeast PA. Oh well, first time for everything. Also, with the yearly trips to NJ and Deleware beaches, Flying Fish, Cape May Brewing, Dogfish (as usual) DFH brewpub. New place in NJ that I want to check out is Tuckahoe Brewing, and in Delaware....I'm excited to go to Burley Oak Brewing. Their line-up looks very solid.

    Probably visiting Victory at least once. I was just at Troegs, and will probably go there a few more times. I'm going to Boston in August, so I'll have to decide what to check out while I'm there. Boston Beer Co. is a must of course.

    I'm also touring some Oregon breweries in July OP. I checked out Logsdon's website and there was no indication that they accept visitors, do you know something I don't? Cause I would totally go there.

    When you go to Asheville, be sure to visit ``Bruisin' Ales'' downtown. Just be careful buying IPAs and such. Sometimes they can let beers sit on their shelves a long time.

    Drink some good shelf beers amongst whales and great beers. Probably finish almost all sours I have over the summer, and finishing it off by going to the Great Taste!

    Vermont this weekend for a serious beer haul, planning on visiting Hill Farmstead and the Alchemist. Then in 3 weeks i'm off to Brazil for a couple of weeks. Anyone know any good brews from Brazil?

    I found a lot more at Appalachian Vitners in Asheville (oh and you can drink some draft beers there while your shopping!). Bruisin Ales seemed higher priced, but have more Imports if that's what you're looking for.

    Will be in Brussels, Belgium for 2 days at the end of my 2-week Europe trip... I plan on spending the 3/4 of the time drinking at Cantillon! And the rest drinking water, eating pommes frites and sleeping.

    I just visited the CCB brew pub last week and it was more than worth it. The line up was amazing. If they still have the Guava Berliner Weiss on tap, try it. And the Cubano Espresso Brown Ale was worth the aroma alone. Also, wait until there to get your Jai Alai. The ones I bought there were only 2 days old. :sunglasses:
