As the summer travel season is almost upon us, my wife Katie and I will be making our first extended trip of the year over the Memorial Day weekend. The inspiration for our upcoming trip is baseball and craft beer, as we are setting out to see every Minor League Baseball team that plays in Alabama while also visiting more of the state’s craft breweries.
Our schedule is built around attending MiLB games, but we will assuredly be visiting craft breweries and seeing other local sights. Here is our schedule…
In addition to seeing games at every Minor League ballpark in the state, Katie will get to attend the Rickwood Classic. We regularly attend Barons games at Regions Field in the Southside District, but she has never been to the annual game at Rickwood Field. So this year, we are making it happen.
In addition to the baseball games, we plan on visiting the following breweries…
Fairhope Brewing Co. in Fairhope
Serda Brewing in Mobile
Big Beach Brewing Co. in Gulf Shores
For good measure, we’ll also be exploring some Civil Rights sights in Montgomery and Selma, too.
To see everything together, you can check out the Google Map I created that combines two of my favorite interests and some of the other sights we plan to visit during our trip.
You can follow along with our trip on the usual social media accounts. I’ll be posting regularly on Twitter (@MyGeogLessons), Instagram (@MyGeogLessons), and my Facebook page (My Geography Lessons). If you enjoy craft beer, you can follow my check-ins on Untappd (MyGeogLessons) by sending me a friend request.
