I stopped in at the Red Rock Brewing Company in Salt Lake City, Utah for a beer.  I tried the Nut Brown Ale which is noted on the beer list as the most awarded of their beers.  It also explains that this beer is a departure from English brown ales in that it uses American hops and is hoppier.  Well, for my tastebuds I prefer the English nut brown ale taste with the rich malt flavor and less hoppiness.  Your mileage may vary.

New South Brewing in Myrtle Beach South Carolina is so cool that I stopped twice, once in 2012 and once in 2013.  Both times I stopped with my family and enjoyed the tour.  During the tour the owner and brewer gave in depth descriptions of the entire operation.  And they also shared tastes of several beers along the way.  This is definitely a cool diversion during vacation in Myrtle Beach.  The White Ale is a Belgian wheat ale that is perfect for the beach – light and crisp.  The Nut Brown Ale is a rich malty and caramelly flavored beer which is a smooth and satisfying.  I’ve purchased numerous six-packs of both to bring home and enjoy and share with friends.  And, I look forward to future visits to Myrtle Beach and New South Brewing.
