    Your favorite brick and mortar

    I am travelling across the USA for 6 months in my RV visiting breweries, but am also a bit of a blade geek. I am looking for any outstanding brick and mortar shops to visit along the way. Any favorites?

    I can't help you with any brick and mortar recommendations (with the exception of Korin and Epicurean Edge), but am curious what breweries are on your list!

    Japanese knife imports for sure. Had a chance to visit for the first time over the holidays and had a GREAT time.

    Held all the knives I wanted to, chatted with Jon about all of my questions. Got to try out stones. He even did an impromptu sharpening theory demo for a man who was in there while I was. He even had some cool stuff not on his site.

    I would recommend his store to anyone.

    Jon is a great guy, and I had a blast while I was there.

    Mowgs.

    Oh heck, if you are passing through Lexington KY skip the brewery and go for the distillery. Woodford reserve (bourbon) has a fantastic tour, http://www.woodfordreserve.com/Disti...DistilleryTour.

    If you must do the brewery, then try Kentucky Ale, they make a great brew called "Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale" (notice the theme), http://www.kentuckyale.com/tours.

    I can't help with knife shops, no first hand experience. However, I hear that Japanese Knife Imports is a great place.

    If you make it to San Francisco check out Bernal Cutlery in the Mission District. Great selection and Josh has a wide knowledge of knives and is eager to share that with his customers!!

    Too many to list, but in Cal I am going to Lost Coast, Pelican, Firestone Walker, Lagunitas and Russian River. Always available to share a pint if anyone is interested.

    Wow it must be nice to be retired (I assume). 6 month tour of breweries with the ability to crash in the parking lot!
