My Beyond the Northwest Quest has brought me to Whippany, New Jersey. Craft beer capital in some circles... Oh, who am I kidding, we took the kids to visit Grandma.
One of the things I enjoy about traveling is tasting the local beer. In the process, I learned about a few minor challenges in procuring beer in the Garden State. First, you can't buy beer in grocery stores. You need to go a wine and liquor store. Next, they're not so friendly to mixed six-packs. We're spoiled in Oregon.
Anyway, I wanted to sample beer that's not available in the Northwest, so here's what I picked up:
Merry Monks' (Belgian Golden Ale), Weyerbacher Brewing, Easton, PA
