    Feather Fallls Brewery, in Oroville, California. Great selection of beer, amazing entertainment venue, and (duh) gambling!

    I was at Sam Adams a few days ago. It was cool. There isn't much to see, but it was neat to see one of the pioneer American brewers up close.

    Great Lakes last week. Massive brewery, nice brewpub and a fun tour. Guide knew her stuff.

    Kane this morning for a growler fill and a quick walk admiring the barrels they have hanging around the warehouse.

    I've sadly never been to a brewery. But I enjoy hearing you all tell stories of your experiences.

    My girlfriend and I stopped by Kane this morning also. We were deciding on how to get one of those barrels in the car without being seen.

    We had also visited Troegs on Wednesday. All in all a good week

    Foothills for me as well. More recently, a new brewery near Smith Mountain Lake called Sunken City. Small, but worth a stop if you're in the area.

    Went to Yards in Philly on Friday. Great place to grab lunch and have some fresh beer. We were drinking their seasonally released DIPA which to them the call "Epic Ale", Cape of Good Hope. So delicious and so fresh. It was kegged the day before. It was a solid afternoon.

    Went on a cruise two weeks ago out of New Orleans. On the way down we stopped at Abita. We had a good time and got to try some of their seasonal and select brews.

    Iron Hill brewpub in West Chester, PA. Great little place. Amazing beer and food. I had some bourbon Octogon while there, a BBA quad, and holy hell was it delicious. Plan on hitting Tired Hands for the first time next week. I can't believe I haven't been there yet, seeing as how it's only a 45 minute drive away!

    Holy City Brewing and COAST Brewing, both in North Charleston, SC.
    Our state's "pint law" passed in June, so we can now enjoy full pints served at local breweries instead of samples only.

    Done Troegs most recently. The new site in Hershey is much better than the old one in Harrisburg. Gift shop has room to browse, tasting room/bar works well, self guided tour well laid out with good signage, etc.

    That's an unusual combination of locations, not to say a distant side trip, one place from the other! :slight_smile:

    My wife and I take frequent, one or two-day pub crawl trips, or we try to plan our itineraries when we are on other vacations trips so that we stop at breweries for lunch and dinner where possible. We visited Fenton Winery & Brewery and 51 North Brewing here in Michigan over this past weekend on our way to a wedding reception. I am closing in on 200 different breweries over the years, and my wife has 170+ to her credit. It's a fun thing to do.
