I stopped in at Three Weavers Brewing Company in Los Angeles, California after a long coast to coast flight and enjoyed their Expatriate West Coast IPA. After all, would you drink an East Coast IPA in Los Angeles, really? And, I really enjoyed the delicious hop profile.
Kunstler Brewing, San Antonio, TX
I stopped in at Kunstler Brewing in San Antonio, Texas, after a long day of frustrating travel. Their Big Emma We Heavy was a great start. The Kolschineal with Prickly Pear and the pepper rim was amazing. Great beers and perfect way to wind down a hectic day.
Suburban Brewing Company, Honey Brook, PA
I stopped in at Suburban Brewing Company in Honey Brook, Pennsylvania. I was pleasantly surprised to find the brewery when I stopped at Jerry’s Pizza Pie for cheesesteak pizza and pepperoni rolls. Quick shout out to Jerry’s. Years ago when we had family in the area this was out go to pizza place. It’s been more than five years since we made it there and so glad we did and what a delicious treat! So, back to the beer. Of course I had to try the Willy Scottish Ale – Scottish Export – and I was not disappointed. It is caramelly and delicious. It is malty and hoppy in the British sense of hoppy. Very well done. I just wish i had brought my growler so I could have brought some home with me. Also, the arcade there is cool, including the Pac Man mural in the restroom.
Hellbender Brewing Company, Washington, DC
I stopped in at Hellbender Brewing Company in Washington, DC and tried their Ignite IPA. Very nice, so I bought a six-pack for the guys back at the office to try. I also tried their stout and bought a crowler for a good friend. Very nice beers. Great spot to stop in and relax.
Stray Dog Brewing Company, Orleans, ON, Canada
I stopped in at Stray Dog Brewing Company in Orleans, Ontario, Canada. The flight of Pale Ale, California Common and two IPAs was good. The Double IPA was also good. The beer that I enjoyed the most was the Oatmeal Stout.
The staff were really friendly. They were setting up for a small local event taking place in the brewery later in the evening. And, the brewery dog was very friendly to all people in the taproom.

Bicycle Craft Brewery, Ottawa, ON, Canada
I stopped in at Bicycle Craft Brewery in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. I was impressed with their beers. From the flight I enjoyed, Frequency APA has a tropical hoppy flavor, Velocipede IPA is a bit grapefruity, and I always love a Wee Heavy and Mr Templeton’s did not disappoint with caramelly and biscuit flavors. My friend’s flight included On the Lam IPA with mango and pineapple flavors. My son-in-law would love this hazy IPA. Delicious beers. Great people. Nice atmosphere. Cool logo – bought t-shirts to bring home.
Flora Hall Brewing, Ottawa, ON, Canada
I stopped in at Flora Hall Brewing in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. It was late. I tried the English Ordinary Bitter. So nice. So mild. So drinkable. What a perfect way to bring the day to a close. Relaxing with this and some maple popcorn and nuts was just what I was hoping for. Also tried Lemondrop and Oatmeal Stout.
These were also both very good. What a cool neighborhood vibe! Great place to stop!
3 Brewers, Ottawa, ON, Canada

I went with the sausage and sauerkraut. So delicious. Three sausages plus wonderful sauerkraut. Delicious! For beer i went with the Honey Drop Ale which was slightly sweet from local honey and a very flavorful ale. Great beer and great food – made for perfect pairing.
Sterling Pig Brewery, West Chester, PA
I stopped in at Sterling Pig Brewery in West Chester, Pennsylvania for lunch and a beer. The Pulled Pork Platter was just awesome! Their barbeque is amazing in addition to their sauces and side dishes. That Molasses sauce and the Jalapeno sauce – delicious. My wife had the brisket which was also wonderful. My brother-in-law had the Snuffler IPA which is very nice. He’s shared cans of that with me in the past. I tried This Little Piggy Single Hop Mosaic and Centennial – both great IPAs. The Le Cochon Noir was so chocolatey that my wife who does not like beer enjoyed it. And the Gourdfather Imperial Pumpkin Ale was also so tasty that my wife liked that also. We had a wonderful time there – great vibe and surroundings. Great place to stop in for food and beers.
