Around the U.S. in 15 Brews

Beer is great. It’s also, according to the numbers, pretty darn popular. In 2015, the American beer industry shipped the equivalent of 2.8 billion 24-bottle cases domestically and around the world, selling more than $100 billion in beer and malt based beverages just in the U.S. Also, as of 2015, there were 4,824 brewing facilities/locations in the US alone. Even for the most ambitious taste testers, that’s a tall order.

Luckily, Travelversed is hitting the road and pulling up a stool at the best breweries in the country. It’s a hard job, but somebody has to do it. From Vermont, to Illinois, to Massachusetts, Travelversed presents “Around the U.S. in 15 Brews.” Let’s go!

Hill Farmstead Brewery (Vermont)

We begin our journey with a trek to the breathtakingly picturesque town of North Greensboro, Vermont, to visit the critically acclaimed Hill Farmstead Brewery. The brain child of local independent brewer Shaun Hill, Hill Farmstead Brewery began in a re-purposed farm house back in 2001.

Multiple awards, high profile interviews, and plenty of kegs later, Hill Farmstead is easily considered one of the best in the business. Their beer menu is always changing and they don’t ship directly to customers, so if you want a taste, you’ll have to get in your car too.
