Duluth, Minn.
Situated in a picturesque port town perched on the shores of Lake Superior, this historic inn comes with water views and an attached brewpub. Fitger’s seasonal stouts, fruit beers and beloved hefeweizen are considered some of the finest in the Northland, a region brimming with excellent breweries.
600 E. Superior St., (218) 722-8826

McMenamins Kennedy School
Portland, Ore.
Located in a former elementary school, this hip hotel is decked out with chalkboards and colorful local art. Even better, the campus features an on-site gastropub, an array of funky bars and, yes, generous pours of McMenamins’ handcrafted stouts, ales and IPAs, some of the best-loved suds in the Northwest.

Trapp Family Lodge
Stowe, Vt.
This European-style resort in the Green Mountains was founded by descendants of the von Trapp family — yes, the singing siblings from The Sound of Music. The movie connection ends there, though. With rustic villas, relaxing massages, a variety of hiking trails and, now, a brand-new craft brewery specializing in Austrian-style lagers, this 2,500-acre retreat is ideal for beer lovers with refined palates.
700 Trapp Hill Road, (802) 253-8511
