2 great books for beer and travel

I confess with glee: many of my travel plans revolve around beer. A brewery tour, a renown brewpub, you name it. From the XXXX brewery tour in Brisbane, Australia, to a smashing beer-matched dinner at Vancouver, BC’s Alibi Room, if I do make plans for a trip, those plans usually have something to do with beer, especially craft beer and microbrew.

Two beer books have come my way of late that are proving especially useful:

Northwest Beer Travel

Get it on AmazonLisa Morrison’s Craft Beers of the Pacific Northwest: A Beer Lover’s Guide to Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia does a brilliant and comprehensive pint-by-pint job of the beer scene in British Columbia, Canada, and Oregon and Washington in the U.S. Pacific Northwest. As an Oregonian myself, this book has been teaching me loads about places where I’ve yet to lift a pint. (There’s also a more in-depth review on my sister site, Antsaint)

Colorado Beer Travel

Get it on AmazonEd Sealover’s Mountain Brew: A Guide to Colorado’s Breweries takes you on a tour of over 100 breweries in Colorado, in the Rocky Mountains of the U.S. In addition to learning the history of each brewery and what they serve, you really get to know the people behind the brewery, making each place come alive and get the ol’ thirst going. Hmmm, my in-laws live in Colorado—and my wife and I are visiting there come spring. Looks like I’ll be doing some field research to check out a few of these Colorado breweries…

What’s your favorite place to lift a pint? Any favorite beer-and-travel resources?
