Like all bad - I mean great - ideas, this one started over beers.

About 8 of us are planning to pile into my short bus and do a 4 day blitz of as many breweries as possible. We're leaving from central Alberta, heading through BC, down through Seattle to Portland, then back through Montana...

A quick google search reveals somewhere over 150 breweries and brewpubs. We're ambitious... but won't hit them all.

What are some favorites?

I want to come!

You should check out BigSky in Missoula.

Also Pike in Seattle

I have never been there but I like their beer.

Definitely hit up Black Raven in Washington. Red Hook is good as well... $1 tour gets you a decent amount of tastes. Lazy Boy Brewing is also pretty cool.

Being from Montana, I'll only comment on my faves in Montana.

Personally, I'd probably skip Big Sky, but it's loads better than the nastyness at Bayern. Kettlehouse also has some good offerings in Missoula.

Montana:

My favs:

Blackfoot Brewing: Tasty IPA + other offerings
Lewis & Clark: Great IPAs
Red Lodge Ales: Great IPA + Chocolate Stout
Carters: Excellent all around
Flathead: Excellent all around

Oh! Thanks for the heads up on the "beer mapping project."

All these suggestions... we're going to need more than 4 days...

You have Tree Brewing in Kelowna and Cannery in Penticton. Not quite along the trans Canada highway, but I'm probably going to check out those breweries this weekend.
