51 breweries to try this holiday season
If you throw a stone in San Diego, there’s a chance you might break a brewery’s window.
But, with the holidays upon us, many will leave the county to lands that don’t have 130-plus breweries.
Never fear, as the craft beer revolution has spread coast to coast. In most major cities, you’ll find unique regional brews that speak to the tastes and traditions of wherever you go.
Use the charts and links on the following pages to find a brewery wherever you are traveling this holiday season.
Side note: Each highlighted location is categorized as a regional brewery by the Brewers Association. For states that did not have a regional brewery, a microbrewery was selected. While some of the selected spots may not be considered “craft” by more astute cicerones, they do reflect what is available in certain states and market share.
Great Lakes breweries
Greater Texas breweries
Upper Midwestern breweries
New England breweries
Alaskan and Hawaiian breweries
