[hr] Thanks to Bill and Debby for taking time to answer our questions! We love featuring beer travelers of all types, from “professional” to just starting out. Whether you’ve visited many breweries or just enjoy seeking out local craft beer when you travel, it’s just one more way to immerse yourself in the local culture and get to know the area/locals. One of the best ways in our opinion! If you know someone that you think would be interested in being a featured beer traveler, let us know! We love hearing from all types of travelers and all the great stories they have to share. Cheers to good beer!
