It's only Wednesday and I'm already thinking about the weekend; shooot, I was thinking about the weekend as I went to bed on Sunday night. Don't act like you weren't too.

So, what's the big plan? For me? It's usually slinging back a few craft brews.

One of my absolute favorite things to do, at least once a month, is get an hour or more outside of Rockford and hit up every craft brewery along the way.  My boyfriend and I just Google "craft breweries," get in the car and go.

Looks like we'll be heading further east on our next road trip (and getting a room because we always drink responsibly, of course). Forbes just announced the best craft beer bars by state and according to Craftbeer.com, the best beer bar in Illinois is The Brass Tap in Orland Park.

Oddly enough, that's the best craft beer bar in Wisconsin, too.

Have you ever been there?
