SeekABrew US Distribution Map

SeekABrew US Distribution Map

For readers who join me on The Quest for Brewed Nirvana, I would like to share a helpful tool.  The US Distribution Map by Seek-A-Brew is available HERE.

The home page looks like the screenshot above. Press Virginia, for example, and you will learn that 137 brewers distribute their wares in our fair state, as of the latest version.

The site offers a compare feature, which returns a Venn diagram of two states. Here in the Commonwealth of Virginia, particularly in NoVA, we also have easy access to beers distributed in nearby states of Maryland, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Delaware, and the District of Columbia. By going across the Potomac to the north, Virginians gain access to 12 more brewers as shown in the table below. We can also venture east of the Potomac and enjoy 16 more brewers who distribute in Maryland.  Just a bit more effort to cross into Delaware and we are rewarded with access to 4 more.

Welcome to Beervana. Yes, Santa Claus, there is a Virginia!
