Default A trip to usa cant wait!!

I I've just booked flights to the USA and I'm heaps excited to check out some of the country's finest brews. I will be on the west coast mostly so I was wondering if any of u local guys could recommend any places to go that would be of interest to a home brewing enthusiast. Lol.
So excited to check the place out! Do Sierra Nevada do brewery tours? Any good craft brewery's on the west coast around SanFrancisco will be in LA too briefly.

Which cities will you be visiting (besides San Francisco)? That will help us give specific advice.

Definitely need what city's you will be at. Just for reference Sierra Nevada (located in Chico) is about a 4-5 hour drive from San Fransisco.

Here's my list:

Russian River - http://russianriverbrewing.com/ (there will be a wait unless you get there right when they open)
Lagunitas - http://lagunitas.com/# (on the way up / back from Russian River from San Francisco)
Sierra Nevada - http://www.sierranevada.com/ (is a decent drive from San Francisco, but is an amazing place to get beer / lunch)
Anchor - http://www.anchorbrewing.com/ (in SF, hard to get a tour booked)
Heretic - http://hereticbrewing.com/ (Jamil Z's brewery, located in the East Bay Area)
21st Amendment - http://21st-amendment.com/ (also in SF - not my favorite, but might as well if you're in SF)

Down in Southern California the only one I've been to is Stone Brewing Co. which is closer to San Diego - so may be somewhat of a drive depending on what part of LA you'll be in. Hope you have a great trip!

So it being a family trip we will be flying into LA driving to San Francisco and staying a few days then we will head across to Las Vegas via sequoia Yosemite visit the Grand Canyon and then have a week to do whatever we want from Vegas on! Prob fly to the east coast to Wilmington then maybe down to Orlando.

Can I ask from where? Just curious.

Around LAX?

I live on the opposite side of LA (east of downtown, airport is west of it) so I know the ones over here. There is a cool pub called Golden Road, a small microbrewery called Eagle Rock. Off the top of my head those are the only ones I know.

If you go to SD, there are a lot of cool places, but it is 2 hours south of LA. Worth it for sure, but maybe not possible for your itinerary.

There are many more microbrews/pubs in LA, I just don't know them very well. I'm always meaning to check them out more, and you have given me a good excuse to do that. I have a couple publications with lists, I can check them out and post again maybe.

When is your trip?
