    Always a good visit to distilleries/breweries and sometimes they even feed you snacks!

    I have done plenty of boos tourism. German beer halls, Belgium breweries (not too many are accessible though), Guiiness (Ireland), Heineken (Amsterdam), Jack Daniels (Lynchburg, TN) - Dry County), Mendoza Wineries, Napa Wineries, and a bunch I am blanking out on right now.

    The idea is for you to still be sober enough to buy a few bottles at the end of your visit.... ;)

    I really enjoyed Algodon Winery, it is in San Rafael, Mendoza.

    Algodon yes... now I remember your visit to San Rafael.

    If you come back to Mendoza, let me know... there are a couple of producers I want to set you up with in Mendoza and Salta that you must visit.... :)

    We enjoyed both of those as well. Best Irish coffee ever at Jameson!

    Closer to home, Anchor Brewing in SF has a great tour, with lots of free beer at the end.
