What two things go together better than craft beer and travel? They go together so well, that building a vacation around craft beer destinations is now relatively common.
The Hoppy Half-Pint
New Orleans is home to a rich and varied culinary scene, which is by no means limited to such iconic staples as beignets, gumbo, crawfish etouffee and jambalaya. There's way more to eat than what Zatarain's offers. However, after a Saturday spent wandering the city, I was looking for some legit gumbo.
New Orleans, home of Mardi Gras, crawfish beignets, gumbo, the Sazerac, the Saints, the French Quarter, ungodly summer heat – and lots of coffee. The place is full of coffee shops, and not just Café Du Monde. One new and modern local coffee shop is Café Bon Ami.
This is Part 1 of a series on how to grow and brew your own beer. Over the year, I'm growing my own hops, building my own brew setup, making my own recipe, brewing a batch, fermenting it and then bottling it.
Where do you go for some great beers, coffee and scenery after a funeral? If you're in Oregon, Portland is a good choice. Rogue, Cascade Barrel House, delicious food, Barista cold brew, tons of walking, and a 35mm Canon AE1 Program. What could go wrong?
I will freely admit @Nerdvana is one of my favorite local Frisco Texas spots. The coffee is legit, and this magical place also displays and sells tabletop and novelty role playing games.

Big Bend Brewing Co. operates out of a (modern) barn, with a taproom located just a few steps from the actual brewery. It's "the most remote brewery in America" and aptly, their tagline is "The beer from out here." Out here, the vistas are both beautiful and forbidding, the people are both welcoming and hardy, and the beer is good.
This here is a collaborative description of a Sunday afternoon in McKinney,TX., including The Celt Pub, Emporium Pies, and Tupps Brewery. There might be sunshine and bottle trees in here, too.
