Start your adventure with a welcome meeting at 07:30 hrs in Atlanta, the capital of Southern hospitality and electric state that holds significance to the Civil Rights Movement. Next, we head north towards the Appalachia region, where bohemian vibes and panoramic mountain views converge in Asheville. Spend your evening exploring the city’s local beer scene. From the ever-progressive Burial Brewery, that offers experimental batches of Belgian-style brews with a southern kick, to embracing nothing but funky, sour wild ales in one of Asheville’s leading microbrewery taprooms – the Funkatorium, you’re bound to find a beer that quenches your thirst. Boasting an astonishing array of breweries per capita, you’ll soon find their hoppy IPA’s and silky dark stouts flow as strong as Ashville’s mountain spring water.
Take time your time exploring the nation’s capital, a city steeped in political history, where the Washington Monument, Smithsonian Institution and Lincoln Memorial stand as a testament to America’s extraordinary narrative. To get the most out of your visit, we’d recommend taking a guided bike tour (optional), followed by a pilgrimage to the iconic Capitol City Brewing Company for a cool pint of Prohibition Porter. The city is also known for its infectiously rhythmic jazz music and punk rock scene, so we’d definitely recommend finding a local speakeasy when you’re in the city to soak up the local talent. End your day at another long-standing local favourite, Ben’s Chilli Bowl.

Before coming face to face with the hustle and bustle of the Big Apple, we explore downtown Brooklyn, an area bursting with creative pop up bars, boutiques and an eclectic mix of culinary delights. Whether you want to hunt for vintage treasures at the Brooklyn Flea market, indulge in fluffy pancakes at the Time Out Market New York or wander through its Botanic Garden, there’s plenty to keep you busy in this hip New York borough. Afterwards, get ready for the ultimate whistle-stop tour on your hop-on, hop-off bus pass will stop off at every major hot spot and hidden cultural gem on your way to the bright, cinematic lights of Times Square in New York.

Today you visit Stowe, a village at the base of Smugglers’ Notch State Park in northern Vermont. Arguably one of the east’s best mountain resort areas, thanks to its dense pine forests and narrow mountain passes, Stowe is a playground for outdoor adventure seekers looking for hiking, mountain biking and rock-climbing opportunities. We’d recommend following the Recreation Path towards the West Branch of the Little River through town to enjoy spectacular mountain views. If you’ve got a sweet tooth, why not get a smooth tub of the iconic Ben & Jerry's ice-cream direct from the source, as its flagship factory is right on your doorstep. To quench your thirst, the Hill Farmstead brewery is a must, crafting what are probably the most in-demand beers in the USA. Stay for their bottles & growlers, that boast a great mix of rustic farmhouse ales.
See Day 6.
End your tour by the Atlantic Ocean in the historic, cobblestone-lined streets of Boston. If you have the time, why not immerse yourself in the city’s history by following its iconic Freedom Trail. Winding its way around the city center, the trail connects 16 historically significant sites, buildings and monuments, from a Revolutionary War battle site to wandering around the country's oldest public park. With a thriving culinary and pop-up bar scene, be sure to tuck into local seafood specialities in the bustling Seaport District or enjoy a bit of Asian fusion in Chinatown. Our last evening will be spent at one of Boston’s most iconic beer landmarks, the Samuel Adams Brewery for a farewell tasting paddle.
