There's the Beer Traveller and then there's the Beer Travelers.
From 2000 to 2002 Paul wrote a column named The Beer Traveller for a Canadian site (which shall not be named). In 2003 All About Beer magazine invited Paul to take over writing their Beer Travelers column. He and Maryanne, his faithful travel assistant and photographer, wrote the bi-mothly column until mid 2010. They still write features and book reviews for the magazine.
Below is a chronological archive of columns for both publications. We're also including some articles published in other places. Click on the title for a brief description. An alphabetical listing of cities is in the side bar.
Old Time Beer & Baseball Tour
Beer. Baseball. Summer. America's heartland. What better way to spend a two-week vacation?

Random Walk Down Memory Lane
A couple of months ago we decided it was time to give our Beer Traveler passports a hiatus. We’ve had a long and pleasant relationship with All About Beer Magazine, almost seven years now. We’ve loved reporting about our travels and the many wonderful establishments that have opened their doors to us as they shared their stories and the fruits of their labors. But, as the old adage goes, all things good things must come to an end.
And it’s no different with us. We no longer travel as often, so we decided it was time to pass the Beer Travelers notebook, keyboard and torch. Once we made that decision, we started to think about our final column. Then, all of a sudden, the memories of so many establishments returned like anxious children demanding attention. We also realized that there are so many more places we wish we could have told you about, but didn’t. All About Beer magazine, vol. 31, No. 2, May 2010
