    I'm going to be driving from Detroit to Louisville the first week of April, any good beers/stores to stop at along the way? What do any of you recommend?

    What do I need to get in Louisville/ where is a great beer store nearby?

    For the trip:
    There are a few Anderson's store locations around Toledo. I was impressed with their selection in Columbus, so maybe look into that ahead of time for the trip back.

    Dutch's in Cincinnati is a little out of your way, but the selection is good and all of the beers are stored in a walk-in cooler.

    [Edit: I see someone on the Great Lakes forum recommended Jungle Jim's in Fairfield. I second that.]

    And, of course, Louisville is covered in the post above.

    I am also looking for any breweries or beer brands that are quality that I can't get in Michigan. I've had Firestone, and Green Flash, any others that are must haves in the area?
