The Street is a financial media company that covers the business world. Apparently they noticed that craft beer is doing well and put together a list of the
10 Best Craft Beer Vacation Destinations. Here’s the list below, though it’s not clear to me if the destinations are in any particular order or not.
- Full Sail Brewery, Hood River, OR
- Stone World Bistro and Gardens, Escondido, CA
- Highland Brewery, Asheville, NC
- Brewery Ommegang, Cooperstown, NY
- D.G. Yuengling & Sons brewery, Pottsville, PA
- Portland, Maine
- Samuel Adams Brewery, Boston, MA
- Sierra Nevada Brewery, Chico, CA
- Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, Milton/Rehoboth Beach, DE
I love Yuengling, and it is a great tour, but it’s hard to lump America’s oldest brewery in with the more recent craft brewers. And the new owners of Anchor Brewery will be surprised to learn that they’re owned by North American Brewing, as incorrectly cited in the article.
Overall, it’s not a bad list. I’ve been to seven of the ten destinations and can attest to those, and I’ve heard great things about the other ones. But it seems weird that Colorado, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Portland, Oregon are all noticeably absent. What places do you think are missing?
