    Firefly and Relic brewing are the best within a short distance (~5 miles) of me. Not a huge fan of traveling for beer so I haven't hit up nearly as many of CT's breweries as I should've by now. We've got a decent amount of solid breweries considering the size of the state.

    Wow, you probably have more breweries by you than banks! I make it a point to buy NC brewed beer when I am in NC. I have had many of those listed but had no idea how many are out there.

    Hm. I think McMenamins Oak Hills brewpub is a little bit closer to home than their Cornelius Pass Roadhouse, although it looks like we're about halfway between them. Vertigo Brewing might be a smidge closer than Oak Hills.

    The map shows Brannon's Brewhouse in Beaverton, but it's been closed for a few months now.

    I'm lucky being in North Jersey. Magnify and Crickethill are both within a few miles of me. I'm a regular at both and have gotten friendly with everyone there. Ramstein is close though I'm not a big fan. Kane, Carton, Defiant, Angry Eriks and Rinn Duin are all reasonably close as well. Tired Hands and Troegs are a little bit of a drive but are next on my list. I'm sure there's one or two I missed but these are the one's I frequent.

    The closest brewery for me is Brasserie du LĂ©man in Allinges, Haute-Savoie, France. It's 5km (3 miles) from me and they make some good organic stuff!

    From where I'm sitting at this very moment (work).... probably 2 miles to the Brooklyn Brewery with Dirck the Norseman being a very close second, and then Transmitter, Rockaway, Finback...

    Nearest , geographically,is Flipside brewery, about 2 milles except that there's a river in the way and it's about 10 miles by road.
    I live in a village but within a half hour's drive there are well over 20 breweries.Perhaps over 30 . There is a brewery in the UK for every 65 square miles or 50000 people.

    Locally, there's a little brewery that just operates out of a brewpub called Motor Row Brewing about five minutes from my house. In terms of breweries that actually bottle, Revolution and Lagunitas are both about 15 minutes away.

    Well, I live right around the block from a Rock Bottom...so technically it's that.

    DC Brau is 11.3 miles away and Denizen's Brewing is 4.8. Flying Dog is about 36 miles away, but depending on traffic it could take me just as long to get to DC Brau because driving in DC is a nightmare sometimes. Recently, a lot more nano breweries have opened in the DC area so it's nice there is more of a variety here these days.

    There's a tiny place with so-so beer (Launch Pad) that is about 2/3 of a mile from my house.
    Dry Dock's the closest really good brewery at around 3 miles.

    Not sure where this data came from, but the brewery closest to me was a brewpub in a box that closed down. There are also ones close to me listed that are not even open yet....

    Smith & Lentz is newly opened and about 3 or 4 miles from me, across the street from Fat Bottom who are soon moving.

    Southern Grist is finishing construction now. They will be the closest to my house at under 2 miles.

    There is an East Nashville Beer Works that is coming next year to the neighborhood.

    I moved to Nashville 3 years ago and there were essentially 4 craft breweries.
    Yazoo
    Blackstone
    Jackalope
    Fat Bottom

    Now there are close to 30.

    I live in a small town near Lansing, MI and we have small brewpub that isn't very good. I never see anyone there. I'll be shocked if they make it through 2016.

    Fortunately, I live an hour away from Founders, Perrin's and Dark Horse. And within 90 minutes, I have Bell's, Oddside Ales and New Holland. I've learned those are good distances for me. They are far enough so I won't go visit frequently but close enough that I can get there if they have a special event.

    I live 2 blocks away New Jersey Beer Company but they only brew about 4-5 beers.
    The nearest notable brewery is Other Half in Brooklyn which is about 30 minutes away. Carton and Kane are just under an hour away but I don't have a car so I hardly ever get down there
