So What's a Beer Trek?
As American craft breweries have grown from a mere handful to more than 1,500 in the past thirty years, beer has evolved to the level of wine in connoisseurship -- and it's no surprise. With beer sommeliers, brewer awards, beer tours and sold-out beer festivals, the lager-loving trend
has fostered a new generation of beer-lovers, causing many Americans to embrace the motto: "Want beer, will travel!" Thus, the beer trek.
In recent years the term "beer trek" also has become known as "a flight of five to nine beers." It's just like a flight of wine, but sounds cooler.
