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.

Casey Brewing & Blending (Colorado)

Over to Colorado we go, where an obsession with oak-barrel aging and a love of beer led Troy Casey on his greatest adventure. Casey Brewing Co., established in 2013, uses 99% local ingredients, oak barrel aging, wild yeast, and bacteria to create their world-renowned flavors. Like most of the breweries on this list, Casey Brewing & Blending has a huge menu. Research recommends that you try a bottle of Advanced Oak Theory.

Side Project Brewing (St. Louis)

Side Project Brewing’s humble beginnings can be traced back to the kitchen of owner/brewer Cory King. A passion for wine-making opened the door to home-brewing craft beer and the rest is history.

The pride of St. Louis, Side Project Brewing is a craft brewery specializing in 100% barrel-aged brews. The size of their beer menu is as immense as it is diverse, ranging from Bier de Champagne to Missouri Wild Ale. The hype is real.
