No matter where you travel in the United States, chances are you’ll be close to a worthy tavern. The trick is to find it. To that end, we found The Beer Lover’s Guide to the USA , by Stan Hieronymus and Daria Labinski (St. Martin’s Griffin, 2000), a tremendous resource for any traveling bar aficionado.

Another way is simply to ask around; that’s how we found many of the following places: Alaskan Hotel & Bar 167 South Franklin Street, Juneau, AL 99801 (800-327-9347, 907-586-1000) • Baumgartner’s Cheese Shop 1023 Sixteenth Avenue, Monroe, WI 53566-1764 (608-325-6157) • d.b.a. 41 First Avenue, New York, NY 10003 (212-475-5097) • Horse Brass Pub 4534 SE Belmont Street, Portland, OR 97215 (503-232-2202) • McSorley’s Old Ale House 15 East Seventh Street, New York, NY 10003 (212-473-9148) • Norwich Inn 325 Main Street, Norwich, VT 05055 (802-649-1143) • Puempel’s Olde Tavern 18 Sixth Avenue, New Glarus, WI 53574 (608-527-2045) • Rose and Raindrop 532 SE Grand Avenue, Portland, OR 97214 (503-238-6996) • Southport Lanes and Billiards 3325 North Southport Avenue, Chicago, IL 60657 (773-472-6600).

We hope you enjoy our work.
