Indulge in choice local brews and well-appointed lodging at the following B&Bs for beer lovers.
Hopkins Ordinary Bed and Breakfast, Sperryville, Virginia
Sip freshly brewed craft beer from the comfort of a magnificent wrap-around porch—or beside your in-room fireplace—at Hopkins Ordinary Bed and Breakfast, a beautifully restored 1820s property listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The nano-brewery in the inn's cellar produces small-batch craft brews made with local barley. Varieties include Innkeeper's India Pale Ale and Little Devil Blonde, and you can purchase a growler to go if you're so inclined.
Plan your beer crawl: These options aren't entirely beer-focused, but they're nonetheless fantastic: Sperryville has a local wine trail, and the Copper Fox Distillery, churning out hand-crafted whiskey, is right around the corner. Across from Copper Fox, head to Pen Druid Brewing, which has a tasting room where you can try mixed-fermentation beers.
1777 Americana Inn, Ephrata, Pennsylvania
This enormous Colonial home (it was originally the residence of a well-known clockmaker) offers six rooms with the best of modern amenities: flat-screen TVs, working fireplaces, Jacuzzi tubs. Complimentary snacks and drinks are served in 1777 Americana Inn's living room every evening. Peek into the backyard and you'll spot the on-site brewery and tasting room, Black Forest. Choose from as many as 10 beers brewed on site, or enjoy pub fare for lunch or dinner in the brewery's restaurant.
Plan your beer crawl: Lancaster has so many breweries that it's been called the "Little Munich of America." Downtown Lancaster is home to Spring House, which offers beer-sample trays in its popular tap room, and Wacker Brewing Company. Nearby towns play host to a wide range of breweries as well; see more here.
The Inn at the Round Barn Farm, Waitsfield, Vermont
The Inn at the Round Barn Farm is located in the heart of Vermont's craft-brew country. The property offers a special two-night beer-tasting package with transportation to an array of local breweries (available on select dates). When not imbibing your way around Vermont's Mad River Valley, have a picnic on the inn's more than 200 bucolic acres or take a dip in the indoor heated lap pool. In the morning, a hot homemade breakfast served in a sun-drenched dining room with floor-to-ceiling windows will erase any hint of a hangover.
Plan your beer crawl: Your package includes transportation to beer tastings at spots including Prohibition Pig, Crop Brewery, Heady Topper and more. Contact the Inn at the Round Barn Farm for more information or visit the Mad River Valley Tourism website.
Black Friar Inn and Pub, Bar Harbor, Maine
Like a road-weary 19th-century traveler, rent a room above a tavern in the historical village of Bar Harbor. At Black Friar Inn and Pub, guests enjoy convenient in-town accommodations along with excellent amenities like in-room fireplaces, private porches and a rooftop deck—all within walking distance of the waterfront. And of course, there's the on-site pub, where hearty tavern fare and Gritty McDuff's microbrews are on the menu.
Plan your beer crawl: Try tastings and tours at nearby Atlantic Brewing Company, set on 10 acres of hop gardens and woods, and Bar Harbor Brewing Company, which was the town's first microbrewery. Maine Coast Brewing Company, next to Jack Russel's Steakhouse, offers tours and tastings during the summer.
Eagle Inn, Santa Barbara, California
The Eagle Inn's proximity to Santa Barbara's expanding microbrew community is reason enough to stay. But we're also drawn to its cooked-to-order gourmet breakfasts, breezy balconies and giant in-room tubs. Grab a bicycle (available for guest use) and take a ride along the coast—or pick up a personalized brew map from the innkeepers and embark on an independent bike and brew tour. There are lots of breweries just a few blocks from the inn.
Woodstock Inn, North Woodstock, New Hampshire
If you're visiting the White Mountains of New Hampshire—and you love beer—there's no question you should stay at this charming inn, brewery and restaurant on Main Street in North Woodstock. Adjacent to the historical 19th-century home, you'll find a brewery and tap room where small-batch ales are handcrafted using a traditional seven-barrel system. Tours and tastings at the Woodstock Inn's brewery are the thing to do, of course. Then head back to the inn and read a book by the fire or enjoy some beers and a burger at the on-site Woodstock Station Restaurant.
