Great idea, but they need some data verification. I found two problems in a few minutes. They listed Iron Hill's corporate office as a location offering tastings (not open to public) and another in Easton, MD that is actually a mid-west brewery that doesn't even distribute to Maryland. Also - it's location is a residential neighborhood.  :(

I noticed a few errors in the Dallas area as well. I'm sure it will get better in time. I was amazed they had so many already.

Yeah, I reported the errors. They probably filled their database with an internet search.

Thanks for sharing this resource.  The website is a nice start on an intriguing concept. 

It would be helpful to see "suggested routes" or a grouping of breweries by location. I would want to know the breweries that I could actually visit, geographically, laid out in a way that was easiest to put together an actual "trail" or itinerary.  Maybe I overlooked that functionality?

Cheers.

After you search a state, the map in the upper right shows locations of results. You can zoom in, etc.
