Directions are usually the best effort we could come up with using Mapquest or Google Maps from the hike (or near by) to the Brewpub.  If you are not sure about something, look at the web sites for the various hikes or Brewpubs.

If you can't find the exact hike we mention, or you're not up for the hike we list, that's ok!  Just go for a walk of at least 1 mile.  Then when you've worked up a good thirst, go and enjoy a great beer!   One of the hikes is usually around 1-3 miles and more or less flat.  The other hike is usually 3-8 miles and may have some altitude gain.   Do whichever one you're more comfortable with.  It also helps to call ahead to see if the Pub (and sometimes the park!) is open when you want to go there.

If you want to send us a few pictures of your hikes, or brewpubs you've visited, that would be great too!

If you discover a new Brewpub (a place that brews their own beer on premises) that we haven't listed yet, or you discover that one has stopped brewing, or if you have any other questions,
