Remember when you could actually crash on a floor for the night?
It was probably one of those lakehouse vacations, where the beer was ample and beds were scarce; you’d wake up with a sore back, head pounding like a drum … then do it all over again.
Times have changed, friend. Beer is too good now to end the night with most of it on your shirt. And a good night’s sleep, it turns out, goes a long way — especially on vacation.
That’s why your next drinking trip, whether with the guys or your better half, should be down the street from a beloved taproom, in an Airbnb you’d score a “5” the second you pull into the driveway.
Whether you’re squatting for hours at the taprooms down the street or just stopping by to ferry a few six-packs home, these homes have the string-lit decks, backyard pools, industrial kitchens and king-size beds to make sure you’re doing right by the beer ... and that aging back of yours.
