My 'to do' map - Microbrewers of Los Angeles county
For a long time I've meant to attack this systematically and finally 'cracked the codes' of the state ABC site. Here's a map of licensed microbrewers, brewpubs and home brew suppliers in the county:
Due to the higher costs of meeting county health dept requirements, most microbrewers don't serve food but most have 'tap rooms' for tasting. Surprisingly, there aren't that many places categorized as brewpubs.
I challenge one and all to Drink Local Brews and show us your (regional) maps!
@InsidiousRex, thanks for the link - they're Way ahead of me :-). Hope they keep it up to date. To my surprise, it lets one toggle display of specific categories on and off.
@RBHound, I'm aware of BeerAdvocate but, even more so than Chowhound, keeping up with the volume of interesting posts can lead to subject matter burnout. Perhaps it's time for a beer and a recharge .....
Knowing where the breweries are with maybe a site link is some help, but not much. Better would be to link to reviews by the beer bloggers down there.
