    Visited Titletown Brewing Co. in Green Bay, WI on a business trip. Also Stone Cellar in Appleton, WI. Both were very good, but the jalapeno elk burger at Titletown was freakin amazing! Stone Cellar had the better darker/hoppier beers, and Titletown had the nicest,cleanest tasting lagers I've had in a long while. And their Kolsch was top notch, among the best I've ever had. Titletown could use some more hops in their lineup, and a couple more dark beers.

    How is it possible that on a mountain bike forum, with hundreds upon hundreds of miles of excellent trails here in Western North Carolina, there's not yet been a post listing any NC breweries? (unless I missed a post somewhere in the previous five pages? apologies if so)

    I guess everybody that rides here is too busy riding and drinking to read the forums. OK, going from memory here. * = top choice:

    California
    *21st Amendment Brewery - San Francisco
    Beach Chalet Brewery & Restaurant - San Francisco
    Magnolia Gastropub & Brewery - San Francisco
    ThirstyBear Brewing Company - San Francisco

    Note: I hit all these and a few other pubs while touring San Fran on a cheapo rented hybrid bike.. 50 miles in a day and a half. Great way to explore the city!
    Dobovedo's Journal of Journeys » Blog Archive » How TO Tour San Francisco – Part I
    Dobovedo's Journal of Journeys » Blog Archive » How TO Tour San Francisco – Part II

    Georgia:
    Moon River - Savannah

    Ohio
    Rivertown Brewing - Cincinnati
    Great Lakes - Cleveland
    *Willoughby Brewing - Willoughby (Cle)
    Also numerous in Columbus and Cincinnati during the 90s that are no longer brewing. Anybody remember Barrelhouse in Cincy?

    North Carolina:

    Asheville Brewing Company - Asheville
    Craggie Brewing - Asheville
    *French Broad - Asheville
    *Green Man - Asheville
    Highland - Asheville (T)
    Lexington Ave. Brewing (LAB) - Asheville
    Thirsty Monk (nano) - Asheville
    *Wedge - Asheville
    *Pisgah - Black Mountain
    Brevard Brewing - Brevard
    Nantahala - Bryson City
    Olde Hickory Brewery - Hickory
    Heinzelmännchen - Sylva
    Headwaters - Waynesville
    Frog Level - Waynesville

    South Carolina:
    *Thomas Creek - Greenville/Spartanburg

    I'm probably missing a couple, but I was drinking at the time.

Next it was on to RockArt in Morrisville VT....huge operation when compared with Trout River, Madison Brewing, NorthShire, and Kingdom Brewing......

    Is Rock Art still brewing, had some of their beers when i went to the Vermont Brewfest in Burlington. They had some really good beer, but remember them being on the smaller side. I think we stopped at Harpoon to, they had a really nice outside open area. Vermont is so beautiful, I love it up there...Thanks for sharing....

    For those in the San Francisco Bay Area or planning to visit, check out Social Kitchen & Brewery on 9th and Irving. Great selection and great beer. Cool vibes and good times.

    Jeff...just noticed this post. Hey, I'm going to be staying in Lyndonville for a night in a few weeks. Staying at the Wildflower Inn. You mentioned that some places in town serve Hill Farmstead. Do you remember which places? Also, how's the drive from Lyndonville to HF? I've heard people say it's a bit confusing, true?

    I don't want to speak for Jeff, so forgive me, but...

    Positive Pie usually has one or two HF beers on, as well as cans of Heady, and is right in Lyndonville.

    The drive to HF from anywhere is pretty daunting, mainly because it's in the middle of nowhere, and roads can be marked funny. GPS is useless in most cases.
    From Lyndonville, it's pretty straight forward in the beginning...VT-122 N to VT-16 S, from there it's a series of back-roads (some dirt) until you reach the farm.
    Both times I have been, I ditched the GPS, and relied on a simple Google.Maps print-out, which worked out fine.

    As Jeff mentioned though, give yourself enough time for driving mistakes/confusion, so you can get there on time.

    Thanks man. Appreciate it. Yeah, I'm pretty good with country back road driving but the signage thing has me a little worried. People keep mentioning that.

    Now THIS is a worthy list. Not a lot know that Rogue started in Ashland nor that Ballard was THE Redhook spot when beer was BEER and Redhook was served unfiltered (before lameass Budweiser bought them and ruined Redhook). Anyone with AB brewing in St Louis on their list should be absolutely ashamed of themselves... that's a factory, not a brewery! and I used to LIVE there!

    Have FUN!

    Hey i have been away for a week and am just seeing Carl Hungus inquiry now....I would add The Tamarack(inside Burke Main Lodge) in addition to JFryauff's suggestions.....they have a good selection of local brews.....including Hill Farm(although they rotate different brewerys fairly frequently.....they did have Kingdom Brewings "Skinny B!*$ch" as well as one other from KB when we were there Labor Day weekend.....Enjoy your visit to the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont......

    Vermont passport Pursuit 9/29-10/4/12

    Saturday we headed up to Northern Vermont……Fiddle Head was our first stop…..the former Brew master from Magic Hat opened this up last year or so……interesting set up…..samples and then only selling Growlers of their 3 styles of brew: IPA, Vermont Pale Ale, and Helles Lager….All were tasty…The IPA was seriously delicious…….after checking in to our hotel and getting unpacked we headed to the Church Street area of Burlington…..Three Needs was on our list of breweries to visit….unfortunately they were not brewing at this time…but we enjoyed a few Switchbacks and Rock Art Ridge Runners….this place looked like a seriously fun college bar….but we were there at approx. 5:30pm…….

I sampled the Humdinger Series……Hex Oktoberfest….CircusBoy Wheat….and the seriously good HIPA..IPA.

    Day 3 on our quest...

    Monday…..Hiking Snake Mountain in the morning…..we met up with our youngest daughter and headed to Stowe….first stop Von Trapp’s Brewery…..We enjoyed a Helles Lager and the Oktoberfest….we arrived just as the sixth cell needed to be changed….so we were delayed a bit but the brew was worth the wait!......next onward to Ben and Jerry’s…..after an enjoyable tour and samples….we drove down Rt 100 less than a mile to the new location of the reopened former Alchemist ....now called Alchemist Cannery….Hurricane Irene had wiped out the original brewery and pub……they reopened at a substantially higher in altitude location….but only doing the brew operation...no pub or restaurant….and they are concentrating on their famous double IPA….HeadyTopper….what a brew!.....we left with a 4 pack….

    Pre-Christmas Skiing visit yields.....

    We headed up to VT for some early season/pre-Christmas skiing as well as visiting a few more Vermont Craft Brewery’s. First stop on our way to Burlington was The Drop In Brewery in Middlebury VT. We were greeted at the door by a friendly VT transplant from Port Jervis NY whom asked if we were looking for food or beer. We went with the beer and headed in to The Drop Inn……set up as a store front with beer memorabilia all over the place to look at and enjoy. The beer bottle, can, growler collection was especially interesting given the variety. We began to work our way through the 6 beers on tap with sampler size glasses. Red Dwarf, Heart of Lothian, Shooting Star Session IPA, SuperNova IPA, Sunshine Happiness, and Christmas Cake Ale were all enjoyed. A brewer came up to say hello, he was clearly not a VT resident and came somewhere from the British Empire based on his accent. My wife loved the Christmas Cake Ale and bought a “Squealer”(little bit smaller than a Growler and a lot smaller than a Grumbler) to enjoy later on our trip. We picked up some glasses also. Great visit!

    We headed to Burlington and met our daughter at one of her and our favorite spots to eat near the Church street area, The Farmhouse. They always have an amazing selection of brews on tap as well as delicious local fare to choose to eat.

    Friday .........

    We continued...

    We enjoyed a day of skiing at Sugarbush on Friday. Took a quick look at the map and realized how close we were to The Bobcat brewery in Bristol. We headed over past the old Glen Ellen Ski area (Sugarbush North) and then past Mad River Glenn ski area on the way through the notch and down the mountain to Bristol. What a scenic drive including seeing a rainbow in the waning light! The Bobcat is located right on Main Street in Bristol with plenty of parking out front and nearby, the parking is the old style front in rather than bumper to bumper parking. We sat at the bar and gave a try of the BobCat IPA and the Bobcat Downtown Brown. Both brews were excellent! Given we were quite a ways from Burlington and would be driving in the dark in a snow storm we decided to head out after only 2 beers.

    Saturday we skied at Bolton Valley and later headed back to Burlington’s Church Street area for dinner at the Three Tomatoes……we enjoyed a few Switchback Pale Ales and called it a evening.

    We got up early on Sunday to head back to Sugarbush for another day of skiing. It had snowed all day and night Saturday so we knew we would be in for a fantastic early season ski day. After a full day of skiing (last run at 4pm…skiing in Alpenglow). We loaded up the Honda and headed over to the Alchemist to sample some Heady Topper as well as pick up some brew special ordered by fellow MTBR’ers. Great trip with a couple new breweries visited.

    Last week took my sister and fiancé to the Gardner Ale House in Gardner, MA. Food was good and the beer was excellent. My wife and I shared the beer sampler then ordered our beers. She had a pale ale, I had the Face Lift IPA. Pretty good. second and third round I had their Face-Off Double IPA which was to die for. If you are in north central MA, I would recommend a stop. I did bring back a growler back to GA and enjoyed it for Christmas.

    Will also be visiting a couple new ones here in Asehville area this week. Oskar Blues new location in Brevard and a brand new brewery downtown called Wicked Weed (referring to hops). This one has been generating a lot of buzz (pun intended) and should be a great addition to the lineup.

    Visited Helltown Brewing (Mt Pleasant PA) last weekend, and this past Saturday I checked out The All Saints brewery in Greensburg PA. All Saints is practically right in my back yard, I can ride my bike there without even crossing a street. I almost hate to admit this but the All Saints Brewery has been open for over a year and it's less than a mile from where I sit right now and yet Saturday was the first time that I ever stepped foot in the place. Is there something wrong with me??? If you are in the Pittsburgh area I recommend both breweries. Helltown's Idle Hands IPA is really good!

    Impressive lists JeffSkisMontana and dobovedo. Can't help but think you guys have to make it out to Minnesota sometime however. There's an impressive upstart of both new and longtime quality brew pubs in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area going on and it makes for some great times on your bikes. Coming from a track/road background, there's always crits that start and end a certain venues as well. But the area with it's lakes and bike friendly biking access makes for a nice, enjoyable ride from place to place with friends as well.

    As far as my list, it's extensive. I've hit several on your lists from Colorado. Can't say enough for the Washington and Oregon scene as well. If I ever hit my 10 post limit around here I'll put up some pictures.

    Oscar Blues Brewing of Colorado recently opened a new facility in Brevard, NC. We took the tour and visited the tasting room last week. Heard a good blues band. This brewery is large compared to most in the Ashevile area. The Yella Pils I am drinking was purchased by someone else. I much prefer their Old Chub Scotch Ale. The GF liked the Deviant Dale's IPA. Dale's Pale Ale is their flagship brew.

    The growler is from Lexington Ave. Brewing, Asheville.

    Stopped by Altamont Brewing in West Asheville. They were pouring their golden ale, amber ale, IPA and stout plus a bunch of guest taps. The Grrrrowler we took home was a bit different from the norm. They are made from spent brewing ingredients. My dog loves them.

    I've drank at several breweries but have only taken two tours of the facilities. First was Sam Adam's Boston Brewery and more recently a friend of mine showed me around the new expansion of the Uinta facility in Utah. And Jeff, Squatters and Wasatch brewing do, in fact, brew their production out of the same facility in SLC. Though I have been told anecdotally that they brew on site what they serve at their respective locations.
    Don't you hate it when a sentence doesn't end the way you think it octopus?

    I was on the big Island last week and made visiting the Kona Brewery a must do agenda item. It was a cool little place. All kegging at the Kona location, they only bottle on the main land. After the tour we sampled some good stuff you can't get elsewhere and the girl giving the tour/tastings gave us extra beer Didn't get any growlers since our hotel had some Konas on tap and my drinks were paid for at the resort.

    I've been there a couple times as part of a round-the-bay road ride. I didn't think the service was bad, and the food tasted fine but just about anything would after riding up the strand into a head wind.

    If only the outside seating was better. Gets pretty cramped with too many idiots at the table (pints and riding buddies).

    Yes, as long as you've tasted beer there which I'm sure you have.

    I am visiting a trio of breweries tomorrow in San Diego:

    Green Flash
    Ballast Point
    Stone

    Pretty excited minus the fact that work and weekend plans have put a halt to my riding the past couple of weeks so my gut is growing and will grow even more tomorrow.

    Hmmm. I like lists, but it never occurred to me to list all the breweries or brewpubs I've visited.
    Then again, I've been beer hunting since Redhook, Grant's and Hale's opened in 1983, so it would be one HELL of a list!!

    Let's see- so for the moment, I'll just add that I visited Lazy Boy Brwg in Everett, WA last week. I had a nice Oktoberfest and an interesting "Norwegian Death" (presumably a fun poke at Iron Horse's very popular "Irish Death").

    I haven't toured many breweries but the Leinenkugel brewery is actually really cool despite the fact that I don't like their beer. Everything was pretty picturesque other than the new visitors center that was full of touristy trinkets. I'd definitely visit again if I was in the area.

    We spent a few hours at Calfkiller Brewery last weekend, it was fantastic! Located outside of Sparta TN and run by two brothers that do everything. If you are ever in Nashville or Cookeville try them out, Brown Recluse was my favorite

    Visited a Brewery?

    Went out to Santee yesterday to check out BNS Brewing. They've only been open for 10 months but are already doing great things. There is a nice outdoor seating area and a fun country themed bar.

    Visited a Brewery?

    Just finished a trip to Aviator Brewery in Fuquay-Varina, NC tonight. They have a good selection of beers and they only sell in kegs and cans. They claim since they use a liner in the can, once the beer is sealed in it is almost as fresh as a keg. We'll see.

    I wouldn't **** you, you're my favorite turd.

    While I was home on leave I visited the Yuengling brewery in Pottsville, PA. Awesome tour throughout the brewery, the one in Pottsvile was the original brewery so you get to see "the cave" which is pre-prohibition. Oldest Brewery in America, 1829.

    Well today headed over to Jack's Abbey in Framingham MA.....enjoyed a flight of brews including: Mass Rising D IPL, Session Rye IPL, Berliner Lager, and Framingham Lager. My wife had a pint of Leisure Time Lager. Had not tried any of these before....Hopomonious Union was what I had several times.....all were very good....Mass Rising was my favorite. This brewery specializes in Lagers....all styles...the tour was very interesting because this crew is trying some special recipes. They had a barrel room just for specialty brews. Fun time.

    While I was up in Kerville riding the Cannell Plunge last weekend I went to Kern River Brewing twice. The place we stayed at was literally next door to it.

    Had their Just Outstanding IPA and the Shuttle Bunny White DIPA. Good stuff!

    I recommend visiting New Glarus Brewing Co! Gorgeous Brewery!
    Considering it's size, not a drop of beer is shipped outside the state of Wisconsin!

    Sam Adams.....

    Finally made it to Sam Adams in Boston(Jamaica Plain section of town). It was raining and our first cold day of the season. My brother and wife came along. We arrived just before 11am and walked in for the 11 am tour. Excellent tour which included generous sampling and a Trolley ride to the local establishment that was the first to have Sam Adams Lager on tap (Doyle's). If you bought a Sam's on TaP then you got to keep the special glass! The same glass was being bought by many at end of tour for $8.50. We had a nice lunch and a few brews then headed over to Belmont Wheel Works(very nice bike shop in the area).

    At a local brewery on my day off after a long weekend.

    Tustin Brewing Co. in Tustin, Ca.

    Fantastic IPA and great food. Not my first time here but figured I'd add it to my list.

    Anchor Brewing a couple months ago. 2 day old Liberty Ale was delicious. I forgot how good the beer is from these guys. Underrated in my opinion

    I'm sick of all the Irish stereotypes, as soon as I finish this beer I"m punching someone

    For explorers of the Sierra, I'll vouch for:
    Mountain Rambler, Bishop, Ca - good beer, good food, best hangout spot in Bishop now.
    June Lake Brewing, June Lakes, Ca - fantastic beer, beautiful spot, owners are mountain bikers more than happy to share favorite trails (hard to find in this area).
    Fifty Fifty, Truckee, Ca - Great beer, great food, fun spot, if a little pricy these days.
    Sierra Nevada, Chico, Ca - You know it, I know it, still making great stuff and fun to visit.
    Tahoe Mountain Brewing - Go to the tap room in Truckee for a different experience from the Tahoe City restaurant.
    Mammoth Brewing Company, Mammoth Lakes. 395 IPA may still be my favorite beer, but super bummed they've stopped canning anything.
    Coldwater, South Lake Tahoe - Dug the Rye IPA, food has been hit and miss, but think that's a new business thing and expect great things.

    Need to try: Alibi, Incline Village - hearing good things.

    I went to the Lucky Bucket brewery in Omaha several months ago. Just a few weeks ago I went to this one also in Omaha. I drank too much and was sick all the next day. Stupid me.......

    In Santa Rosa, there is Annadel State Park which features about 20+ miles of rocky, tech singletrack.

    Then a few minutes away is the Russian River Brewery.

    I live about two hours away and made the trek to this hallowed ground. Came home with $400 of Pliny and Blind Pig IPAs.
