Overview

As craft brewing becomes increasingly inventive, with new beers demonstrating remarkable complexity, one region of the United States is particularly notable for its fascinating brewing scene: the Northeast. New England and the Mid-Atlantic boast some of America's most interesting craft breweries--there, beer lovers can discover exceptional brews, lively taprooms, spectacular views, and many other qualities that make the Northeast a must-visit region for anyone interested in craft brewing. In The Great Northeast Brewery Tour, beer expert Ben Keene introduces readers to sixty two of the most incredible breweries in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, and Washington, D.C. Breweries like Allagash Brewing in Portland, Maine, and Smuttynose Brewing Company in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, allow visitors to tour the facilities, offering an inside look at how great beers are created. Places such as Brewery Ommegang in Cooperstown, New York, where visitors can try delicious Belgian food to accompany Belgian-style ales, and Harpoon Brewery in Boston are surrounded by stunning landscapes. Each brewery discussed is unique and special, much like the region's brewing heritage. Brewery profiles include interesting facts about each brewery and its history, along with useful practical information like directions, nearby accommodations, and local dining options that highlight craft beer. Spectacular full-color photography accompanies each profile, and sidebars throughout the text provide supplementary information on tasting methods, beer styles, and more. The Great Northeast Brewery Tour is an ideal resource for anyone interested in beer, whether you're planning a trip across the Northeast or simply curious to learn more about the region's innovative beer scene.
