A New England Brewery Road Trip
New England is ideal for so much more than leaf peeping this time of year. It is home to some of the best beer in America. As a style, the hazy New England IPAs born out of the region have exploded and there is fine barrel-aged work being done up and down the East Coast. But unless you have an extra couple week’s of vacation, it’s nearly impossible to get to every worthwhile stop in New England, especially when breweries like the Alchemist and Hill Farmstead are up in the hinterlands of Vermont near the Canadian border. Here, an easier beer trail—a brewery road trip you can make on a long weekend that’s mostly one easy shot up highway 95 with just a couple brief detours.
A Craft Beer Crawl Down the Pacific Coast Highway
Also known as Highway 1, the Pacific Coast Highway route runs along most of California’s coast. Over 650 miles in length, it stretches from the north in Mendocino County all the way to the south in Orange County. It’s surely the country’s most scenic road trip route, but you’ll want to keep your eyes on the road and hands on the wheel—the PCH is often single-lane and usually twisting and turning right on the edge of a cliff. One false move, or one strong beer, and you could soon be swimming. That makes it all the more vexing that traversing the PCH, top to bottom, is one heckuva trip for the beer traveler. Here are the craft beer stops you should make (with plenty of time in between, obviously). – Aaron Goldfarb
