I'm not sure this is my first I know that the travel agency did a east coast cruise last year up to Canada, but I have no idea what beers they had.

Also price isn't bad we paid for the beer ahead of time but pay a "capping" fee fir each beer.

Carnival has a new exclusive beer, Thirsty Frog. Not bad for a guy like me who doesn't like hoppy beers. Their catch phrase is "Live Thirsty". I have no clue how they got away with that (Dos Equis).

The highlight of the whole trip though was hanging out with the brewer at the Dockyard Brewery in Bermuda, the only brewery on the island. He makes an awesome porter and gave me some tips to improve mine. They sell exclusively out of two pubs on the island, one connected to the brewery. Worth the trip if anyone is in Bermuda.

So apparently celebrity is picking 10 craft beers to carry on their newest ship and if that does well then they are going to add 50 craft beers to the whole fleet. We toured 8 different breweries/ brewpubs. Geoff, Marcy and Curtis from Alaskan brewing had a crab feed for us which was awesome. And the 4 major brewpubs in Victoria B.c. Hosted tastings for us as well. We had 4 tastings on the ship all of them featured 10-13 beers each time. I really don't know how I'm functioning today without eating or drinking something every 2 hours
