The 26 Best Breweries in the US (2018 Edition)

Posted By Trav

4 years ago, Jason from Zero to Travel and I sat down to talk about our best breweries in the US.

Since then I’ve hit new levels of beer snobbery/nerdery.

With over 140 breweries visited all over the US, we have to do an update!

The rules:

1) It has to be in the United States
2) We have to have visited the taproom in person.

If you have a favorite brewery tweet us @packofpeanuts, we’d love to hear about it!

If we’re ever near to one we’d be more than happy to meet up, hang out, drink beer, and chat about our awesome brewery experiences!

Spoiler Alert: All the breweries are listed below. If you don’t want to ruin the surprise, stop reading now and listen to the episode first! Then come back and check out all the links.

    We loved this and we love beer! We had to listen over three nights because it was so long but the passion and great beer tips were addicting! Thanks for taking the time and sharing. We live on the West Coast so the only beer we drink regularly on your list is Modern Times. We high fived when you mentioned Other Half because we went there recently on a trip to NY. So good! Ok, so why don’t you try our good local spots: Sante Adairius, Shanty Shack, Alvarado St, Humble Sea. Oh, where is the master list of the 140 breweries so we can see what didn’t make list?

      @Angela Gray – super glad you liked the podcast and yeah, we knew this would be a longer episode. Don’t want to cut something this fun short! I’d love to try Alvarado Street, I’ve heard awesome things about it.
