Beer travel is much more fun when you know what places to visit, what to expect, and when you connect with the breweries ahead of time. I like to find out the basic information: name, website, address { sometimes it’s difficult to find the place so it’s best to know in advance}, the social media names to be able to follow and get in touch and the hours. I love knowing if a place serves food or not and usually what kinds of beers to expect. My husband and I travel for beer so when we are out and about, stumbling upon a brewery is great but it can be a real drag googling nearby breweries and coming up with many that are not actual breweries, especially when you find out after trying to get there…. So I create these time consuming lists before we go. I ask some key beer friends on twitter for advice and take off!

These are my lists.
