Nothing beats getting together with friends at your local brewery on a Saturday afternoon, sampling delicious and unique craft brews, and learning a thing or two about the beer-making process. With more than 9,000 breweries across the country and over 700 opened in 2021 alone, according to the latest reports, it’s safe to say we’re having a brewakening of sorts. To honor this ever-growing industry, we rounded up some of the best craft breweries that should be added to your craft beer bucket list.
**The Trips to Discover team appreciates the entire brewing community and all they give back to their respective hometowns. In creating this list, we took into account breweries that are loved by their patrons, use quality ingredients, give back to the community, and most importantly… make some dang good beer!
