    Nice list! I just noticed that you are missing Stone from your California breweries. (Maybe it was included in the “etc., etc.”?) Trust me, you must go to that one in Escondido. The food is equally amazing as the beer. Also, I had the great fortune of stumbling upon Lost Coast in Eureka last year. The food was not as memorable, but the beer was excellent. Tip: Bring a jacket. Even though it may be July, it WILL be freezing!

    Thanks for the tips and for making me revisit my list. I’ll add those both to the list. In fact, I’d love to take a month and just do an entire CA beer venture. So many amazing beer places, so little time and $$ :o)

    I managed to find a few more to add to your list should you go to Toronto, Ontario. You don’t mind, do you? 😀

    Steam Whistle and Mill Street Brewery. Big thumbs up.
