Check out France44.com for some upper Midwest goodies shipped right to your door. Let me know if you want recommendations.
Thank you! I have definitely incorporated France44.com into my plan. Also, Bruisin' Ales in North Carolina has a great selection of states.

Recommendations for Wisconsin or Ohio? Favors IPAs followed by porters or stouts, then on to lagers, red ales, etc. Fruity beers are at the bottom of the list.

I can track down some New Glarus. They typically have an Imperial IPA called Scream in Spring/summer otherwise I’m sure moon man or spotted cow would do the trick

what did you find for south dakota? i’ve heard both dakotas are hard
I've been so lucky with the amazing offers for help on this project. The neighbor of a coworker was taking a hunting trip to South Dakota and brought back something from The Knuckle Brewing Company in Sturgis. ND was available from France 44 - a Drekker.

I think Sea Dog and Shipyard might be easier to get in Washington State than Allagash. But I'm pretty sure I can get Allagash online from Craft Beer Kings. Either way, I think I'm on the home stretch! Thank you for the tips!
sounds like youve completed a lot! which states are u missing?

Ya know,I honestly thought you were fucking with us when you joined. Pretty cool to watch you see this through to fruition.
My Craft Beer Kings package came in the mail yesterday. I officially have everything in hand except those that are always offered locally. They'll probably taste terrible by April....but who cares!

Now, figuring out how to manage a 50-beer flight/sampler for 10+ people is the next logistics hurdle...

I will be back to post pictures and details in a few months. Thank you for all of the support!

So the big event was in April...and it was epic! A total success. We ended up with 51 beers (Washington D.C. was a bonus beer!). None were so old that they were not drinkable. Most of the beers were stored refrigerated for 1 to 6 months.

For the actual sampling we had guests walk from station to station for about 17 tasters. There was a break of an hour or so between each round, with three rounds in total. I estimate about 12 people made it through the entire thing - including the birthday boy, of course!

I made a fact sheet for each beer and then a map for each region. I'm posting a sample of our home state of Washington and the regional maps along with some photos.

The maps and the full list. Some of the states had more than one option for guests to choose from.
