5 Hidden Craft Beer Vacation Destinations

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- When you make a habit of incorporating beer into vacations, you start to realize that breweries, brewpubs and craft brewers pop up just about everywhere you can imagine.

We've been writing about beer and vacations for three years now and have come to realize that no list we put together is comprehensive enough. Our first list of craft beer vacation destinations had some glaring omissions, most notably the entire states of Michigan and Colorado. Our follow-up only left folks thirsty for more and our list of the top beer vacation cities from last summer seemed pretty small at 10. Even when we boiled it down to brewpubs worth visiting, we eventually had to expand our scope to brewpubs in all 50 states and Washington, D.C.

With more than 2,400 breweries and brewpubs in the U.S., according to the Brewers Association craft beer industry group, just about any vacation destination in the U.S. is going to have one. So what should the 86% of Americans travel site TripAdvisor (TRIP - Get Report) says are taking vacation trips this summer do to find the best beer-soaked spots?

We advise getting creative. We've already pointed you toward all the low-hanging fruit and advised craft beer jaunts to Denver, Seattle, Boston and Portland, Ore., but there are cozy little corners of America where some of the best craft beer spots are still fairly well-hidden. They're not the places known for being beer towns and, in some cases, sit in the shadow of beer destinations content to hog the spotlight.

We've dug though our past picks and our extended travel itinerary and found five craft beer vacation destinations that aren't known primarily for their beer just yet. We're not going to plan your entire itinerary for you, but we can give you the beer specifics and let you figure out the rest. If you have any gems we're not covering here, feel free to share:
