by Jay Morris

I have friends that have done wine tasting vacations proudly proclaiming "We're going to the Napa Valley". Now "We're going to Kalamazoo, Grand Rapids, Detroit, Ann Arbor and Chicago" is the new Napa Valley for beer lovers. Each of those cities have world class breweries, and smart beer lovers can see that entire region in just a few days.
