My Virtual Beer Trail

The Beers

Every state has its beer trail. That is the road that links the celebrated breweries of each state. Listed below is my journey along the virtual beer trail of those notable breweries. I evaluate them on a range from one to five -- five being the best.

The table below is sortable by clicking on the column title. For example, if you'd like to find a good pilsner, sort the Style column. Or if you'd like to find a good German beer, sort the Location column.

Click on the beer name link and a pop-up window shows you what the bottle looks like. Enjoy!

Do I have any favorite beers that aren't listed here. Yes. In fact, my favorite isn't even available to the general public any longer. Budweiser Brew Masters Private Reserve was only sold to the public from 2005-2007. It was also given to their employees as a Christmas gift. This was the best, smoothest beer I've ever had. 8.5% ABV was also a nice bonus. Unfortunately, this beer is no longer brewed. Next, my favorite beer is Czechoslovakian Budweiser Budvar. That is the one purchased in Europe. Due to trademark a dispute, it's imported into the US under the name Czechvar. It doesn't taste the same. The closest I've found is Saranac's Bohemian Pilsener.
