Has anyone here ever tried to take a beercation via Amtrak over a 30-45 day time period? I'm considering a Rail Pass with 12 or 18 segments to visit breweries next year. However, to keep the costs down as far as renting a car or using a taxi in smaller cities I'm curious about how many breweries are within easy walking distance (less than 8 blocks) to a brewery and a hotel. I'll compile a list of those that you suggest and use it to help with my planning. When I get to a large mecca of beer places like San Diego, Portland or Seattle I'll rent a car and stay a few extra days, but I'm looking for those highly-recommended breweries that are in the smaller communities that are serviced by Amtrak and likely to be the only brewery in that town. Does anyone know of any breweries that fit this description? If anyone wants to consider planning their own trip like this I'll start your list by suggesting my hometown brewery, Arcadia, which is about 3 blocks from the train station, and there are three hotels within 3-6 blocks too. Nearby is Kalamazoo which has Bell's Brewery that is near Amtrak (about 3-4 blocks), and I can think of two hotels that are 4-8 blocks from the train. And besides Bell's, there are also three other breweries within that walking area. Thanks for your help.
