Trip Overview

Raise a glass to freedom! Visit the most vibrant cities belonging to America’s historic east coast, birthplace of revolution and America’s craft beer scene.

As well as great beers, we’ve included the absolute best of these cities to explore, and your leader has tried and tested all the best food joints for the inevitable carb cravings – a tough job, but someone had to do it. For the next eight days your social media feed will be on point with a seriously sweet combo of cities, sights and craft beer delights!

2019 Itinerary

Start your tour in Atlanta, Georgia’s electric state capital, and a place of significant civil rights movement history. You’ll head north into Appalachia, sandwiched between the Great Smoky Mountains and the Blue Ridge, the self-proclaimed ‘Land of the Sky. Here, the effortless bohemian vibe and panoramic mountain views of Asheville awaits. If that’s not exciting enough this mountain city is within the top three U.S. cities for breweries per capita, and good ones too! You’ll have time this evening to suss out the scene.

Next up is the nation’s capital. From the impressive Smithsonian Museums and the White House to trendy neighborhoods such as Georgetown, Adams Morgan and Dupont Circle, the capital has something for everyone. We recommend you try out a locally guided bike tour of Washington DC's monuments as a fun way to see the city and the famous sights like the Lincoln Memorial and the Washington Monument. For a taste of history, a pilgrimage to Capital City Brewing Company is a must, for a Prohibition Porter among other fine tasting options. Food on your mind? There’s only one thing for it – Ben’s Chilli Bowl for awesome grub.

Get the best of both worlds in New York. You’ll stay in hipster claimed Brooklyn with its bustling food and craft culture scene, but your two day hop on hop off bus pass will get you into the city for dazzling lights of cinematic NYC. It’s the best way to see the best of New York over a short space of time, including historic landmarks and monuments, ground zero, Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn Bridge and all the foods, hot dogs, pretzels and bagels. What could be better?

Vermont is an outdoors paradise! And if 'Chunky Monkey' and 'Phish Food' mean something to you, then drop everything: Ben & Jerry's ice-cream factory is on your doorstep! For the serious beer lovers, then joining your tour guide for a visit to Hill Farmstead brewery is a must. You won’t thank us for the early start but it’s worth the effort - these are probably the most in-demand beers in the USA, and if you’re not there before it opens you ain’t getting in. Don’t worry, we’ll make sure you’re there in time.
