Have you been looking for a next-level beer experience? If you love craft beer and are interested in how it’s made, make your next vacation beer-centric and book a room at one of these brewery-focused hotels. From New Hampshire to Tennessee, here are six of our favorite places to enjoy a room with a brew.
If you’re “outdoorsy in the sense that you like getting drunk on patios,” the Dogfish Inn is the place for you. Featuring beer-centric amenities and design elements, each room in the inn is stocked with everything you need to enjoy a day at the beach. Located in coastal Delaware, the Dogfish Inn sits on Lewes Harbor and is the perfect place to explore the brand’s Rehoboth Beach brewpub and nearby Milton production brewery. If you’re planning a weekend to stay, book a spot on the Grain to Glass tour, which will give you an inside look at the distilling process and some normally off-limit parts of the brewery. Don’t worry – drinks are included.
For an immersive beer experience on the west coast, we’ve got our eye on Rogue’s Bed ‘n Beer. The apartments are located above the Rogue Ales Public House on Newport’s beautiful waterfront, and upon your arrival, you’ll be greeted with a perfectly chilled Rogue Ale in your room’s mini fridge. During your stay, take a tour of the South Beach brewery and visit Rogue’s two-story tasting room overlooking the Yaquina harbor.
North Woodstock, NH
Originally the Lincoln Railroad Station, this historic inn is as quintessentially “New England” as it gets. The 30-barrel brewing facility has produced award-winning ales, and the onsite brew pub is an homage to true north country style. The Woodstock Inn Brewery offers a limited amount of Brewer’s Weekends throughout the year – learn how to brew beer and get some other exclusive perks.
This “adult retreat” at the oldest brewpub in Texas is the perfect getaway for anyone who loves great brews. A stay at this charming B&B comes with a complimentary pint for each night of your stay, and since it’s located above the brewery’s restaurant, you’re just a few steps away from breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Need another reason to make the trip to Fredericksburg? The small town allows sidewalk consumption, so you can take your frosty brew to go on your evening stroll.
McMenamins is a family-owned business that runs over 50 brewpubs, breweries, and historic hotels in the Pacific Northwest. The Anderson School is a hotel converted from a junior high school built in 1931, and today features bars, restaurants, and classrooms turned into hotel rooms. Check out the Beer 101 overnight package, which includes samplers of McMenamins handcrafted ales so you’ll get to try a little of everything.
In an exciting partnership with Brewery Ommegang, you can spend two nights at this beautiful inn as part of a Bed & Brew package. The hotel was built in 1874 and has been beautifully restored, and the Belgian-style brewery is just six miles down the road. You’ll get a VIP guided tour of the brewery, a custom growler with your choice of on-tap Ommegang beer, two nights lodging at the Inn at Cooperstown, and lots of other goodies. We’ll drink to that!
