The highlight was visiting Russian River Brewing Company in Santa Rosa. Pliny the Elder was had, as well as a few other varieties. It's a great place in a nice little town. Clearly a local favorite because it was packed on a Thursday afternoon. Unfortunately, my camera disappeared at some point during the trip so I don't have pictures to show off but I know you'll trust me.
I also randomly picked up an IPA from Uinta Brewing (located in Salt Lake City) which I quite liked. And good old Moose Drool from Missoula made an appearance. There were plenty of other beers that I had but the trip was mostly about spending time with friends and thus was a great success!
(Give it a few years and maybe I'll even get into wine-making!)
