"The Great American Ale Trail" is an excellent addition to my can't-hit-the-road-without-this travel book collection. This book is so much more than a listing of beeratoriums across the country. Your time will be well spent as you immerse yourself in local color, anecdotes, history, and amazingly well-detailed descriptions of craft beers that will make you thirst for the beers themselves and also will give you the knowledge and confidence to venture into new places on the map and try the local brews. The Ale Trail is a travelogue that sets the bar a notch higher for informative food guides. Not only will you learn more about the craft beers in your own vicinity, you'll find yourself looking up cities where you have friends, reading them excerpts from the book, and encouraging them to go out and explore the craft beers in their home towns. A must for any foodie's library.
