We often tell you to get out there and do something. The stories that we’ve posted about our roadtripping adventures “out there” have been some of our most popular. As more and more breweries have opened across the state, beer touring has become increasingly popular. That’s why we are happy to welcome myscenicdrives.com aboard as a sponsor of the Washington Beer Blog.
The idea of packing up the car and heading out on a wine tasting adventure is not at all new, but beer travel is just now being discovered. “I personally think beer travel is really no different than visiting the wineries,” says Eric Theriault of myscenicdrives.com.
Whether you are simply looking to go explore a new beer destination on a Saturday afternoon, or you’re looking to plan an entire vacation around beer touring, myscenicdrives.com can help. myscenicdrives.com provides both a rich, user-friendly Web interface for personal computers and a light-weight mobile Web version, ideal for smartphones such as the iPhone and Android. Once you select a drive, phones with GPS capabilities and software (such as Google Maps) will easily get you on the road.
In their own words,
myscenicdrives.com came about from my search last summer for a scenic drive. I wanted to hit the road and drive somewhere new and exciting, but when I was researching drives, most websites out there just list the drives, and unless you are intimate with a map (if the site gave you one at all), you have no idea whether the drive is 5 seconds away or 5 days away. And so the site was born with our simple motto: tell us where you are, and we’ll find you the perfect scenic drive.
The site just launched last Tuesday (March 30th), and we will initially be focusing on the Pacific Northwest.
The Washington Beer Blog invites you to visit myscenicdrives.com and take it for a test spin. We think you’ll like it.
