Road trip

Postby thebuddrik » Thu Aug 20, 2009 1:11 pm

The wife and I are on pretty intense road trip. We left yesterday and am now in Athens, Ga. We leave here and will head north and east twards NYC and possably Boston. Let me know of places, beer related, that I shouldn't miss.
Also, is there any laws about bringing beer across state lines?

I'm glad you brought that up. Yes there's a law
for ever beer you transport you most bring one for me.
I know I know that sounds crazy but it's true :shock:

Brewery Ommegang! NY. Redtail has it wrong about the law. It's me not him who gets the beer tax.

No I'm pretty sure they make American Ale. Come to think of it, aren't they Dutch? not Belgian?

This is the first time that I have down time and am not dead tired from walking. We are in Bemidji, MN right now. Not a whole hell of a lot in this town. You know it is bad when you ask a local to recommend a restaurant to you and she says "to play it safe just go to Appelbees";and that sucked!!
So far I have only went to Samuel Adams for a tour. I was bummed out because I felt like I had swine flu when we were in Boston and had to take it easy. Feel fine now so all is good.
Whenever I go out to eat I just ask what they have local and try that. The Wisconsin beers have been my fav so far. New Glarus in particular was good (thanks trip ; )). I am drinking an IPA called Wild Ride by Sand Creek as of now.
Cant wait to see what else we come across!!

Travel broadens the mind! When you get to Colorado, you may decide never to leave, with all the great breweries they have there. :wink:
I would like to remind you, however, that the west coast is full of great breweries too. :D
