We're pretty lucky here in San Diego; seems like you can't swing a dead cat without hitting a new microbrewery. Just used Scribble Maps to figure out my distances:

Nearest microbreweries: Hess 1 mile, Callahan's (San Diego Brewing) 1 mile, Alesmith 1.2 miles, Ballast Point 3 miles

Nearest liquor store with a decent beer selection: Plaza Wine and Spirit .6 miles

Nearest homebrew supply: American Hombrewing Supply 5 miles, Ballast Point Brewmart 10 miles

(Bonus - White Labs yeast headquarters - 1 mile)

My homebrew store is about 2 miles from my house and there must be 50 microbreweries around.

I have two stores within 15 miles of me. I get a pretty good price on bulk malt at one of them.

I live in the middle of nowhere. Nearest microbrew is 40 miles. Nearest homebrew shop is about 100 miles and the nearest place to buy decent beer (with a fairly large selection) is about 25 miles. Every once in a while my local grocery store will have a decent microbrew though and I usually have good beer on tap!

Have a great beer store and homebrew shop less than 10 miles from my place but no brewery anywhere close. Its a shame a city the size of Dayton, OH does not have a microbrewery. I would even say there isnt a legit brewpub in Cincinnati either. I cant count Rock Bottom or BJs and the other breweries dont even have a pub. The closest place is actually in Columbus and it is an hour drive away.

I think I got you all beat.

Quay Street Brewing Company, Port Huron Michigan 292 Feet.

Eastern Shores Homebrewing Supply 0.3 mi (Three blocks South of me on my street)

Wolverine Market Beer and Wine 0.3 mi (Three Blocks North of me on my street)

(And these are just the places in walking distance. There are 4 other great beerstores within a 2 mile radious from me. Another brewpub 15 minutes from me, and 2 more places to by homebrew supplies in a 5 mile radius of me.

This is Quay Street Brewing company, fyi...(The back view)

This is my street from my Loft window during the annual classic car show.

Basically the Brewpub is at the corner of the far leftt of this pic, just before you cross the bridge, then 2 more blocks further is the LHBS, and 3 blocks north (to the right) of the view is the market I talked about.

Also about 150 feet from me is a restaurant with about 12 microbrews on tap and a couple hundred bottles. And about 1 block past the lhbs on the opposite side of the street is a coffee house that as 4-5 micros on tap, mostly Bell's and Dragonmead.

Pfft...I guess Quay Street is okay. If you're into, like, paradise or whatever.

It's a good hour and a half drive to either of my "local" home brew stores. It's about 30 minutes to the closest brewpub. Sucks to be me
