Thanks for All the Comments
We'll try to make the Florida Can Opener in January - that might work out. If we bring enough beer, we might not notice the quality of the site.
I've been to New Belgium and hung out in that trailer - it's very cool. They take it to various places as a way to publicize their products.
I've also been to Deschutes and Full Sail, as well as Anchor. Haven't hit Sierra yet, though we plan on it. There are so many great micros out there, and they really love it when you come to visit them on their home turf.
Dianne, we actually have a house in Vermont - in Barnard, just outside of Woodstock. I'm very familiar with the breweries there. In fact, I'm getting together with a bunch of them this weekend to talk about the trip - John from the Alchemist in Waterbury, Paul from Burlington Hearth/American Flatbread, and Tim from the Norwich Inn/Jasper Murdoch. We may even stop and see Ray McNeill down at McNeill's in Brattleboro. I've been doing a Vermont Beer and Cheese Festival at my bar every year for the past nine, so I've become pretty good friends with a lot of them. I love all things Vermont!!!! And thanks for the advice on the water tank. We're hoping to reach Key West in late Dec. and then head up the West coast in early Jan, so looks like we'll just miss you.
Thanks again everyone...by the way, our motto is, "Opening minds, one beer at a time..."
