Home Brew Hotels

House rentals where craft brew comes with the territory

iraxmas_8_27_15_durham_loft_night_400We brought you a stellar list of hotels with hops. But sometimes you’re looking for a homier vibe, and that means checking in via new-era vacation home rentals you can book online (often at a great price).

Enter the likes of AirBnB, VRBO and HomeAway.com, which have a surprising amount of vacation rentals offered in former breweries (like this one, in London, located in a magnificent converted 1800's Victorian operation overlooking an elegant courtyard), in brewery-dense areas (like this stunner near Sam Adams, in Boston, and Tipping T, a stylish, eco-friendly rental in Austin, TX adjacent to Jester King Brewery and Stanley's Farmhouse Pizza).

If you could rent a house in any beer town, which one would it be? Tell us below.

And read on for the best beer lovers’ house rentals we’ve found.

Thankfully the Pacific Northwest go-to Rainier Beer lives on, but its old brewery has been converted to incredible lofts like this one you can rent for just $110. Feeling adventurous? You could head down under to Australia and camp out in this brewery cottage on the grounds of Red Hill Brewery, or literally sleep in a massive converted wooden beer barrel, in Germany, thanks to this listing on AirBnB.

Got a crowd? The Brewhouse Mountain Eco-Inn, located on 4 acres of mixed hardwood forest in the Conewago Mountains of Pennsylvania, is filled with a world-famous collection of vintage beer cans from around the globe, antique bottles, prints, neons, signs and every imaginable type of breweriana (and sleeps 10 for just $379 a night). Sleep tight, beer fanatics!

Bright, Light, and Belgian

To the novice, Belgian beers are thought to be by turns “heavy” or “rich” and “full-bodied”, but such descriptors believe the fact that Belgium’s beer tradition—in addition to many a very big brew—includes super-refreshing, lighter styles,......

Fire and Spice

Craft beers have been taking a bath in Kentucky’s finest barrels. The results, in the right brewers’ hands, can be delicious. Americans have enjoyed bourbon for centuries, but it wasn’t until the 1990s that craft breweries began tinkering with bourbon-soaked barrels. The......
