As some of you may know — and plenty of you don’t — I recently started a new job and beginning next week I’ll be hitting the road for a good six or eight weeks.
The area of the Northeast that I’m scheduled to cover includes the majority of Vermont, all of the state of Connecticut, a few stops in Massachusetts (mostly Attleboro through Cape Code & the extreme western end of the state) and a few days in the greater Albany area.
While I do know some of the places I should be sure and check out while I’m on the road — American Flatbread and the Magic Hat brewery in Burlington; Thomas Hooker in Bloomfield, CT — I’m very much in need of some more suggestions. I’m looking for every suggestion you can think of – including breweries/brewpubs, bars & pubs, and even top-rate package stores; really, if you think I should check it out, than please let me know!
It’s going to be a long, lonely two-and-a-half months on the road (don’t worry, the blog isn’t going anywhere… not much else to do in a hotel room in Central Connecticut but drink good beer and blog about it) and I’ll need all of the good beer escapes I can get my hands on, so keep the suggestions coming (comment about them on this post, any other post, or feel free to email your suggestions to me).
Thanks so much everyone! And wish me luck…
