    I always thought that Dragon Stoute was the strongest beer ever - alebit ultra ghetto - in it being nearly 40 proof.

    I didn't know there was one in Philly... I really want to go there now


    I've only been to one, Victory Brewery in a Philly suburb. They make some really nasty beer concoctions. I actually went there last year with my Biology class because we were studying plant life or some BS and my professor wanted to demonstrate the fermentation of yeast by taking us on a brewery tour. he was a cool guy haha

    The Sam Adams Brewhouse in Philly is closed.

    Victory Hop Devil is drinkable stuff. The first place I found it was in a bar called Toronado in San Fransisco. The brewery did a food and beer fest in Battery Park last year. It can also be found at the Old Bay Restaurant in New Brunswick.

    Holy crap, Jumba...that's a lot of samples!

    The only one I've been to (besides a microbrew bar here and there) is the coors brewery in Colorado. Sucky beer but a huge place and very cool.

    I was also in the Baccardi factory in Puerto Rico...does that count?

    Well I worked for Anheuser-Busch so I got a tour of the brewery in St. Louis in 1995 and then was just on a cruise and saw the Bacardi factory in Puerto Rico .

    I was at the Sam Adams brewery in Boston and the had an empty bottle of that Boston Utopia. It was a special brew and they only made 1000 bottles...it smelled just like Jack Daniels - they had this special beer on tap that was only available in Boston for the 375 anniversary. It was called Sam Adams 375 and it was a lager just like the Colonial people made in 1630 when Boston was founded..it was so friggin amazing. It tasted like candy, very sweet..the foundation was molasses.

    I have also been to the Anheuser-Busch brewery in Merrimack, NH. Its only one of 4 breweries in the US that have the Clidesdales..huge friggin animals.

    Its interesting. The Anheuser-Busch plant is all about educating you about the process with a small taste test at the end. The sam Adams brew was like - this is how we do it...lets drink!!

    They are both free, and both fun!

    Had to add a couple more to the list after my trip to Green Bay.

    Titletown Brewery is a great night spot in the downtown area. The building is an old train depot, and the beer is outstanding.

    Hinterland Brewey is just across the street. Kinda trendy with an ecclectic menu.

    Still about a dozen more that're stored somewhere in memory.

    I've been to a few Breweries...

    Blue Point (Blue Point, NY) - right down the road from me ;)
    BrickHouse Brewery (Patchogue, NY) - Another one right around the block
    Black Forest Brew Haus (Farmingdale, NY) - A BrewPub that makes my favorite beer
    John Harvards (Lake Grove, NY) - I frequent this one often. Excellent food.
    Southampton Publick House (Southampton, NY) - People go nuts for this, but I think it's a bit overrated.
    Sam Adams (Boston) - Did the tour and then hung out in the tasting room. Boston Ale rocks. It's a little different from the Boston Lager. Harder to find on LI.
    Guinness (Dublin, Ireland) - One of the highlights of my honeymoon. Being as fresh as it is, the beer is truly great.

    When the Jets come here next year, I will arrange for a trip to the Pyramid Brewery and a few other local breweries.
