CATEGORIES: Feature   Travel  

It’s easy to score a good night’s sleep at these hotels, which tuck you in with a beer before bed.

At Portland, Oregon’s Hotel deLuxe, the mini-bar’s more than Snickers and Schweppes; it’s loaded with craft beers and artisan snacks to pair with them, complete with tasting notes.

The Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia continues its partnership with Dock Street Brewing, collaborating on a slew of brews that incorporate botanicals grown in the hotel’s rooftop garden, like the recent aphrodisiac-laden Spanish Fly, brewed with ginger, yarrow and wormwood.

At Jsix, the restaurant adjacent to Kimpton’s Hotel Solamar in San Diego, chef and homebrewer Christian Graves hosts a Craft Beer Hour, where he showcases the wares of one local brewery each Thursday.

The Four Points by Sheraton hotel collection has always been ahead of the craft beer menu curve; now, the LAX location pours 100 beers at new eatery Brewster’s−a Beererie.

McMenamins’ nine Northwest hotels (like the sprawling Edgefield estate in Troutdale, Ore., and Portland hipster-haven Crystal Hotel) are beer-lover must-stays; the 10th, a 45-room former Elks Lodge in Tacoma, Wash., debuts this year. Each spot pours house-brewed favorites like Ruby Ale and Terminator Stout.

Why a Miller Lite Was the Best Beer I’ve Ever Had

I’ve worked in craft beer for nearly five years now. I’ve had the fortune to try some truly amazing brews: Pliny the Elder, Heady Topper, Bourbon Barrel Aged Expedition Stout. Supplication? I’ve got one in my mini-fridge. The reason I’m telling you this is because I want to frame my statements here properly. I’ve had good beer, trust me. The best beer I’ve ever had, though, was a Miller Lite.
