Best thing to do is to try and make it to Vermont and drink from the source. Great food, scenery, activities and beer. It's worth it to make the trek and I'd be happy to play tour guide for anyone that comes up.

My UPS bills for 2012 were $2,000 and that's after saying no to almost everyone that asks me to send them Vermont beer. It's just too expensive.

Brew Brothers sells pearl malt. That's the only place I've found in Oregon that regularly carries it. And I believe do online sales as well.

Don't get me wrong, there are places to get great beer. I was talking in terms of local production.

But the fact I have to drive to the city - I don't exactly live in the sticks - kind of demonstrates what I'm saying. We have a "beer store" that is owned by the biggest multinational beer companies... it's not surprising there's less demand here.

Killington is too far south I think. I am flying solo on my annual trip to VT late Feb. Will probably:
-Jay on the 20th
-Hill Farmstead
-Stowe on the 21st
-Alchemist
-MRG/'Bush on the 22nd (depends on snow)
-Lawson's Finest

My travel plans are flexible, but I must end up at the MRG/Sugarbush/Waitsfield area for the last couple of nights as I'm friends with a crotchety old B&B owner that I need to hang out with.

But I always welcome new adventures and new people to show me around mountains and where they hide the good stuff. I'll send ya a PM closer to the date and we'll see if we can work something out. Thanks for the offer.
