Golden Pints 2015


Although Crema is a single entity and is usually broadly in agreement on beer-related matters for this post we each wrote our own answers. But as you might expect there was a great deal of overlap in our responses.  

Disclaimers: We run the homebrew club for We Brought Beer at their Clapham Junction store. Chris brews part time at Weird Beard Brewery.

Crema's US Beer Odyssey Autumn 2015

It's been three years since we last visited the US. This time round we put some serious thought into planning out our trip. Three weeks sounds like quite a long time but I can assure you that it is insufficient for visiting all the breweries you are interested in. We started by roughly mapping out our route, then we wrote a long list of all the breweries we wanted to visit. As we worked out the distances we'd need to travel each day the list of breweries got whittled down to the bare essentials of what we could realistically manage. We were supposed to be on holiday after all and driving for six or eight hours a day would make it seem more like work than rest.
