That's subjective! Nice galley though.

Best to have a friend bring the beer.

Re: Beer Cruising

Before I am found guilty of being an Arrogant Bastard, I salute you all as comrades in the pursuit of happiness...

BTW, If we could sail there, I would have recommended Vermont, Montana, and Colorado.

Looks like any of a dozen places within a mile of my house. Grand Rapids has the official title Beer City USA. We have more micro breweries per cap than anywhere else. New laws let the stuff get bottled & sold around so you can often get them in bars & take-outs in any Michigan port town. In Grand Haven, there are two micros in sight of the docks. Traverse City has a few as do most of the small towns. Never cheap but always affordable.

After a hot day of working on the F'ing boat, I agree, mass produced swill has its place (as long as its almost freezing and you can't really taste it anyway). I usually keep some Bravaha Extra around for this purpose. At Q58 per 12 pack in Guatemala, that's about 61 cents per can.

Re: Beer Cruising

I'm so very very proud that no one has promoted the general US swill (Bud?!?), and have actually called it out for what it really is.

Must be a boaters good taste!

Re: Beer Cruising

PNW. May I suggest Bellingham WA with the San Juan islands to cruise and at least four microbreweries, several of them award-winning (check out Boundary Bay). And, for a place to enjoy beer while working on your boat, Port Townsend WA is pretty special. Especially if you have a wooden boat.

Cheers,
Annie

Re: Beer Cruising

Micro beer selections like that are everywhere in New England. All the large outlets have a micro beer display taking up about 5 yards of refrigerator space. My favorite is Ipswich but there are so many.

I just wish a few would sell their product in cans. No bottles allowed on the savboat except at the dock.

If you are ever in Newport get your propane tanks serviced at the place on Coddington Hwy. There's a brewery next door.

More and more craft beers are being packaged in cans. Modern beverage canning technology actually makes it superior to glass.

Just took this while grabbing a six pack at the grocery store... I forgot to mention yummy Fort George Vortex which comes in 16oz cans. Pretty sure that is an 8pack of 21st Amendment in the box.
