Looks like a trip to the Northwest and east coast should put your collection over the top.

Congrats, and great pictures.

I'm a little sad to see Hops, Capitol City, Legend, etc in my area and no Clipper City, Dogfish Head, etc. If you go to a Dogfish pub, try the 75 minute blend IPA.

And go visit Allagash if you get the chance.

And three of the weakest brewpubs in Portland! haha. Anyways, that is a bloody impressive list otherwise.

Of course, the best places for a beer fan to visit in Portland are Allagash Brewery, the Great Lost Bear beer pub (arguably the best beer bar in the country), and Geary's Brewery (one of the oldest and most important brewerys in the American craft brew movement, and the oldest craft/micro brewery east of the Mississippi). Gritty McDuff's, Shipyard, and Casco Bay Brewing would be next on the list, but there are a lot of other great places around the city to see.

There's another city named Portland out on the west coast that has almost as good a beer scene, too, but not quite as good as the "real" Portland.

I was a bit bummed to only see Alesmith and Callahan's from San Diego. Alesmith is awesome and Callahan's is a joke. But there are a ton of good breweries here.

If you come back to Michigan, I recommend Founders in Grand Rapids, and Michigan Brewing Company, in Webberville (near Lansing).

There are plenty over by Detroit area, but then you'd have to go over by the Detroit area...

Also a few in Traverse City area, like North Peak Brewing, Mackinaw Brewing Company, and Right Brain Brewing. Michigan has plenty of them, but I'm in an island of no breweries where i live in the LP.

Looks like you've had some cool trips. I've done 1/2 dozen here on the East coast and a few more brew pubs , but nothing compared to the number of places you've visited.
Do hope to do a tour of the new Mayflower brewery in Plymouth Ma. problem is they only do tours on Thurs and Friday nights and my girlfriend usually works late.
They do offer a 64 oz growler full for $8.00 and $2.00 deposit. that alone is worth the trip.
