Why You Need to Party in Ljubljana for Slovenian Statehood Day

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Uncategorized

June 25 is fast approaching. Though National Catfish Day deserves plans of its own, you may want to put those plans on hold until next year, and spend the 25th in Ljubljana, Europe’s best kept secret instead. Ljubljana has the architecture of Spain, wine of Italy, politeness of Germany, and food of Greece while being affordable and still relatively uncrowded from tourists. This little gem of Slovenia deserves your time. In 1991, Yugoslavia fell apart. […]

San Diego Beercation – Day Four

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Uncategorized

Day Four – All Points West Today we hit all points west of where we’ve been so far, and essentially the remaining breweries (Well technically there are still about 95 others, but the big ones). We’re going to spend the day in the sun, by the surf, and even catch a famous sunset on the cliffs at the obviously named Sunset Cliffs. C’est apropos. Did I use that right? Let’s begin at Stone, the biggest […]

Day Three – The Great Whyte North Day Three takes us about 20 minutes up north to the amazing concentration of craft breweries in the town of Miramar. I hope you saved some room yesterday. Hidden among the miles and miles of non-descript industrial park buildings are several amazing breweries. Next to the Pottery Barn warehouse and a distribution center for a pharmaceutical company might be the next Stone Brewing. Come along but do not […]

Today we hit up South Park and North Park, a three mile or so stretch of beer heaven […]

San Diego Beercation – Day One

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Uncategorized

If you have one goal in San Diego it should be to spend the maximum possible amount of time outside in the sun. I mean like no more than 15 minutes a day inside. That includes ordering at places, using restrooms, and sitting down. The weather here is a gift to you and you better not squander it. If you do, the polar vortex will find you and exact revenge. Life is too short to […]

Your San Diego Beercation Begins Now

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Uncategorized

San Diego is a town known for surf, sun, Mexican food, and of course beer. The beer options here are so good it’s worth a visit just for the breweries, but the combination of all of the above makes it a perfect destination. There are now over 110 breweries in San Diego and each one is probably worth visiting, but I’ve done the hard work and come up with the best itinerary for a San […]

Beercation in Montreal and Quebec City

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Uncategorized

You may be thinking Montreal and Quebec aren’t beer towns. That’s where you’d be wrong. Both towns have a passion for beer that trails only their passion for hockey and gravy covered cheese curds and fries. Though the spoken language may be different, these towns share a love for the common language of good beer, and most interestingly, what seems to be a particular specialization in excellent Belgian style ales. You won’t find many big […]
