theroamingpint.com - Each week in honor of #TT Travel Tuesday on Twitter, The Roaming Pint features a new beer traveler for the week. We've met some pretty incredible people that have some amazing stories, such as Chris and Meredith of BeerGeek.TV who are approaching their 700th brewery visit this February in Austraila. In fact, our beer travelers go all around the world seeking out the best beers in places like Germany, Belgium and yeah, even India. Even though I would not recommend their beer, it is a part of their nation/culture nonetheless, and is a part of what makes beer travel so great.

We've met plenty of NuRVers who also share their love for great beer while on the road. If you have been known to seek out a brewery or two and would be interested in being a featured beer traveler, drop us a line at theroamingpint@gmail.com. We would love to hear the stories, of where you've been and what you've tried.

And if you have yet to seek out great craft beer on your trip, please email me! I am a firm believer that there is a beer out there for everyone. I'm not talking some crap "domestic light" beer or any beer that pays millions to advertise their beer. That is crap beer. I'm talking good beer and I am happy to announce it exists!

Little known traveling fact: Most breweries will let you sample their beer for free if you ask to just try a little when at a brewery (only exceptions are states with laws prohibiting free samples) And if you're feeling really adventurous most breweries will have a sampler tray, sometimes called a flight, where they will give you ~4 oz pours of each of their beers for a pretty decent price. That way you can start to explore your palate and understand that there are big differences between a hoppy beer and a malty beer. And then you can get really good and start to tell the difference between a Pale Ale and an American IPA :) With thousands and thousands of beer recipes out there, you're bound to find something you like!

Your turn... Leave us a comment with your favorite beer story:
