A video tour of Stanley, the on-the-road home of The Roaming Pint
Road Trips for Beer come in all types. Some folks will book a night or two in their favorite beer town. Others plan their vacations around breweries, festivals and other beer goodness. But few chuck most of their possessions and move into an RV so they can visit great beer destinations across the country.
The couple behind TheRoamingPint.com have been doing just that for nearly two years and blogging about their adventures along the way.
Road Trips for Beer caught up with Brian Devine and Maria Scarpello at Cigar City Brewing in Tampa, Florida, joined them on the tour (third best in the country, according to legendary tour guide and funny-hat wearer Bob Lorber) and enjoyed a few pints with them afterward.
You can learn all about them on their well-designed website, which includes an FAQ section as well as a map of their journeys (Cigar City was their 181st brewery visit). The site also features interviews of fellow beer travelers, including one with Road Trips for Beer editor Gerard Walen.
Brian and Maria were kind enough to let Gerard film a video tour of their 29-foot motor home named “Stanley,” where he met their traveling companions Ernie, a black lab/terrier mix, and Buddha, an English Bulldog. Be sure to watch it through to the end, where they discuss how they deal with their on-the-road spats.
It’s great relationship advice!
