Oh MAN !!!! The one of the objects in my travels is the discovery of GOOD brew-pubs and I have found some.

On our trip to N.M. two years ago,it was one in Moab and two in Grand Junction along with the Red Cliffs Winery on the Colorado River above Moab.
Last year,it was Firestone/walker in Paso Robles,The irish pub in Novato with a Kilt Lifter,Pizza Port in Carlsbad,one in Eureka and on.
One place I would love to go is to Milford,De. whyich is home to Dogfish Head Brewery which has some of the greatest IPA's in the country. Their 60 and 90 minute ones are unbeatable,IMHO,but the 120 minute at 15% is not drinkable for me. It's only one of two times I've ever thrown out an opened beer as it's it tasted like a cheap whiskey..
We regularly try to stop at different McMenamins in Wash and Oregon whenever we go there along with the Rogue in Newport and Astoria and the Deschutes in Bend. Along with as many wineries as we can.
Here in our area besides the above mentioned,there is the Ironhorse Brewery in Ellensburg that has an Irish Death,a red and a brown ale.Then there are all the previously mentioned ones from Seattle and north.On the Kitsap Peninsula,where I live we have Hood Canal Brewing,Silver City Brewpub and Hale's Ales and then going across the Hood canal Bridge to the north Olympic Peninsula,you have two breweries in Port Townsend and about 15 wineries in both of the areas.At last count there were over 750 registered wineries in the state of Wash.
Life is great when you can have acess to all these great libations.

Awesome, thanx Bigdog We are actually going to do a route this summer that we will hit many of these fine establishments along the way. We will be going down into Oregon to see Crater Lake and we figured staying in about the Bend area first. Then we will make our way to the Oregon and Washington coasts and up to Abbotsford, BC so we will definitely look for these ones along the way. We did not know there was a Rogue in Astoria as well, now we don't have to go as crazy down in Newport. Thanx so much for the post.

Just wanted to say I have been following the thread and I am really getting excited about heading out this summer and sampling the offerings of our state Indiana. I also noticed that alot of you have listed local festivals for wine and beer. So I wanted to share a web site I have found related to the topic of festivals and tastings. Here is the link The Beer Festival Calendar Also here is a link to a wine event the wife and I attend Vintage Indiana Great time every year.

OKAY,here's the latest scoop on the Bremerton Beer Fest. It's gonna be on Saturday the 23rd of July from noon till 9PM and will be centered on Picific Ave in downtown.There will be about 24 breweries and some foods along with some music. The area is about a two block from the Bremerton Marina,for you boaters,and the same from the Seattle-Bremerton ferries.(if they are still running by that time)It's also on facebook as;Bremerton Summer Brewfest.
My step-daughter has a shop,Ish Vintage clothing,right down and I'll probably be there all day,when I'm not out imbibing that is.
There is a Wal-mart on Wheaton way which is right on the busline to downtown...Anyone attending can IM me andf mebbee we can get together.

Thought that y'all would like this one.There are a number of them,but I think this is the cutest one. I haven't seen Tiger Beer in a number of years,but I think they have it at one of my favorite markets that have a REALLY GOOD selection of beers.

Just as a matter of info,I grew up in Olympia about 8-10 blocks from the brewery and some of my friends from the hood were members of the Schmidt family,the owners of Oly Beer.I graduated from the old OHS and of course the school motto was "It's the water".I do still drink it when I can find it and normally have enuff for friends in the MH.I have a relatively extensive collection of Oly glasses and mugs,trays,a bunch of miscellaneous items and even a couple of cases of longneck Oly's that even Rob Schmidt couldn't remember when they were brewed.One of those cases is still unopened.
Love my beers...

I was at the Pelican Pub and Brewery in Pacific City OR several times this past summer. I'm not a beer drinker, but their hamburgers were incredible and there's so much to watch because you're right on the beach. The weather was great and after we tired ourselves out walking on the beach, we sat and watched the surfers and the dorymen race their boats up onto the beach. YouTube - Pacific City, Oregon Boat Landing On Beach Great place. There's also a huge "sand mountain" and the kids have a blast walking up and sliding down it.
Another place to visit, though I couldn't go because I had my dog with me is the Rogue River Mail Boat Rides. I did get to go on a whale watching trip out of Depoe Bay in a zodiac boat (smallest working harbor in the world) and had a blast though we didn't spot a whale. YouTube - Fast fishing charter boat goes full speed at the rocks

I was able to go because the young woman was a certified captain and a marine biologist who liked dogs. It was a wild ride! Very informative and very reasonably priced.
