10 years ago, just a week after I turned 21, I went on this trip; four of us drove up to Oregon from San Diego on our spring break, touring breweries along the way. During that trip I drank a lot of great beer, yet afterward I found myself contemplating ways how the trip could have been improved.
We could have flown one way and rented a car instead of driving round trip. We could have hit more breweries in northern California. We could have added Washington.
This year I did the trip again. Seven guys, eight days, 1,800 miles, and 23 breweries. And here it is.
