Micro-Breweries and Twisty Roads Tour

I gave my oldest the Christmas gift of a ~4-5 day tour of Twisty Roads and Micro-Breweries. In the past we have done multi-day tours through VT and the ADKs, but so far he has not been south of PA on a bike. I am a big fan of the roads in WV and VA around the Blue Ridge.

Looking for suggestions of breweries we can string together with great roads this May-July.

Thanks!
Rob

This should help. http://beermapping.com/ Also there is a phone app called "Find Craft Beer" https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/find...340206461?mt=8 I use both all the time when traveling.

I have enjoyed a number of beers at Morgantown Brewery in Morgantown, WV.

Piccadilly in Winchester, VA is good.

In Frederick, MD Brewer's Alley is one of my favorites and hit it every time I'm nearby.

Try this site if you get down near the BRP / Skyline Dr area.

BrewRidge Trail

tons of excellent roads in the area also. Check out the Catherders thread in the Regional forums for some other recommendations.

Supposed to be a new brewery opening in Feb in Staunton VA too. Should be in full swing by the summer.

Red Beard Brewery

You could follow the BRP all the way down to Lynchburg and their is a decent pizza / brewery in downtown, near the James River. Jefferson Brewery

Lots of options...........

oh yeah, if you swing thry Syracuse, bring down some Dinosaur BBQ.

I'll second mountain state brewing, plus one of the owners, Willie, along with his father, have a bunch of beemers. Also, while on your way south or on your way back home, plan a stop at the http://www.elkcreekcafe.net/ in Milheim PA, great beers and great local riding, a good place to spend a few days exploring.

Might be a bit South for you. But the missus and I did a micro brewery tour last 4th of July. Nine breweries in five days. Most were within walking distance of a place to stay.

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=807378

Cities visited were Chattanooga, TN; Bryson City, NC; Ashville, NC; Knowville, TN; and Nashville, TN.

Had a great time from what I remember.

If you get to Asheville, NC don't miss "The Wedge". Pretty cool place! Good barbeque at a place called 12 bones too!

I'd like to recommend "Nanthala Brewing Company" in Bryson City.

Try some "Original Sin".. it's good stuff.
