Mitch Steele Dishes on Upscale Food and Beer Destination Concept

Former Stone Brewing Co. Brewmaster Mitch Steele shares a few details about his new craft-beer venture—and hits on a few industry trends in the process.

Progressive alcohol legislation reform in combination with the national surge in craft-beer popularity has allowed Cincinnati’s impressive brewing DNA to be thrust into the spotlight.

With 300 days of sunshine per year, one of the largest concentrations of craft breweries in the United States, and the granddaddy of craft-beer festivals, Denver, Colorado, has a long history as a beer travel destination.

Beercation: Tampa, Florida

Florida was long a craft-beer backwater, but over the past few years, that reputation has completely shifted, on the strength of an intensely creative brewing scene on Florida’s west coast.

Beercation: Asheville, North Carolina

Asheville has everything you’d want in a perfect craft-beer town—clean water, endless outdoor activities, and a cool counter-cultural vibe.

Beercation: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Beer Done with Intensity (and a Wry Sense of Fun)

Beercation: Portland, Oregon

Portland’s beer culture offers something for everyone—from some of the best barrel-aged sour beers in the country to an expansive chain of locally owned craft brewpubs and bars, and craft-beer pioneers in their fourth decade of brewing.

Beercation: San Diego

San Diego’s all-encompassing craft-beer culture continues to support and incubate a growing number of younger breweries.
