    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 .........
