Its been a hectic week or two with my recent Vermont beer trip (posts & photos coming soon), but I've received some great #beertography! So much so that I'm posting FOUR today in celebration of the impending Fourth of July holiday weekend.

Ok that's it for now folks. I've got a bunch more great submissions but I'll save those for next week. Hope everyone has a fantastic 4th. Bonus points to anyone who submits Fourth of July themed #beertography over the weekend.

Don't forget to email your beertography to or you can just tag your tweet with #beertography and I'll save it for next week's entry.

To The Green Mountain State!

Tonight, my friends and I begin a journey North for a whirlwind tour of the best breweries and brewpubs of Vermont. Check out our planned stops:

Hill Farmstead Brewery
The Warren Store in Warren, VT (where they sell bottles of Lawson's Finest Liquids)
The Alchemist
Trapp Family Lodge & Brewery
Vermont Pub & Brewery
American Flatbread / Zero Gravity Brewing
The Farmhouse Tap & Grill
Three Penny Taproom

Its quite an ambitious schedule for 4 days including hiking Mt. Mansfield on Saturday morning, but we're determined. Out of everything listed I've only had a few Hill Farmstead offerings before (luckily enough some do make their way to NYC occasionally). You may notice that a brewery not on the list but featured in the lead photo is Magic Hat. Even though it is Vermont's most prominent brewery and we will be a few miles away, we've elected to pass it up. They make a few good beers but I think the other smaller breweries blow them away. Who knows, maybe plans will change...but for now, no Magic Hat.

We'll also be making a stop at Valley Malt in Hadley, MA, run by husband & wife team Andrea and Christian Stanley who we met at Brooklyn Wort. The couple is bringing back artisanal, local malt and we will be using it in our upcoming homebrews!

If you follow me on twitter, I will be tweeting our adventures and untappd'ing everything (provided there's some kind of cell service in the mountains) we drink. If you have any other suggestions of places to stop in at in VT, feel free to send them my way!

And the Winner is...

A big congratulations to Giancarlo Annese & Sarah Tobol from BeerUnion! They swooped in mere minutes before the deadline with a great smattering of Founders Beertography. The entry above was selected as the winner for its ability to make you thirsty AND haunt your dreams at the same time. I also really enjoyed their photo below, mainly because I recognize the color of the neck labels of Founders and therefore know this is a pretty darn impressive group shot.

Thanks to Founders for the prize pack donation and Special Thanks to all those who submitted entries. Keep your eyes peeled for the next beertography contest coming later this Summer! And if you have a brewery you'd like to suggest as the focus of the next contest, let me know!

In the meantime you may have noticed that there hasn't been a Beertography of the Week. This will be remedied early next week and all submissions of the past few weeks will be considered. Also, I'm happy to announce that beertography now has a Facebook Page that you can like if you feel like doing so. Also if you like the Facebook page, you'll be able to upload your beertography at any time! So lets review the options for beertographizing:

- via email at
- via twitter, just use the #beertography tag & mention me if possible
- via facebook, upload directly to the page

Beertography of the Week - June 1st

This week's Beertography of the Week comes to us from the fine folks at BeerCycling and continues our bike, beer & organic theme from last week's FoodCyclist feature. This has to be among the most unique of our user submissions so far and definitely the best to feature real live frogs. For those of you unfamiliar with HUB, it stands for Hopworks Urban Brewery and features an organic line of craft beers based out of Portland, OR. The beer being guarded by Kermit there is their fantastic Secession Cascadian Dark Ale which I highly recommend you seek out if you haven't had it already.

Were you inspired by the FoodCyclist's ambitious bike trip around the globe? You should probably check out BeerCycling and all of their beer-themed bicycle trips including one in BELGIUM! It sounds amazing.

Check out BeerCycling on the web or follow them on twitter.

Don't forget to email your beertography to or you can just tag your tweet with #beertography and I'll save it for next week's entry.
