Fredericksburg Brewing Co., Fredericksburg, Texas
The oldest brewpub in Texas is also the state's first B3, a term coined by vacationing beer geeks who noticed a growing number of B&Bs with attached breweries.
Fredericksburg Brewing Co. likes to call its invention a "bed and brew" -- 11 individually styled rooms poised just above the restaurant, a night's stay that entitles you to four free samples of house-made beer.
Though other breweries have since moved into this Hill Country town, this German-inspired B3 maintains a top-notch beer selection with a helles lager, porter and red ale that consistently garner medals at national and international competitions.
After a night in the Admiral's Quarters or Cowboy Room, you can stay cool in the brewpub's climate controlled beer garden or browse historic downtown Fredericksburg -- where sidewalk consumption is legal -- while knocking back a fresh beer.
Fredericksburg Brewing Co., 245 E. Main St., Fredericksburg, Texas; 830-997-1646; from $129 per night
Saratoga Resort and Spa/Snowy Mountain Brewery, Saratoga, Wyoming
What the tiny city of Saratoga lacks in population it makes up for in locally made beer.
Buried inside the massive Saratoga Resort and Spa is the Snowy Mountain Brewery, one of the oldest brewpub operations in the state.
In 2009, after a several year hiatus, during which its brewing equipment lay dormant, the resort's owners hired brewmaster Steve Simpson. It has since maintained a steady tap list of nine house beers, from Saratoga witbier to Citra IPA.
Whether you stay at the resort during Wyoming's short summers or harsh winters, you'll have your pick of outdoor activities from hunting, fishing and golfing to cross-country skiing and ATV adventuring. You can also soak in Saratoga's natural hot springs, which are corralled on the grounds into a public 70-foot pool and four smaller teepee-covered pools.
Saratoga Resort and Spa/Snowy Mountain Brewery, 601 East Pic Pike Road, Saratoga, Wyoming; 800-594-0178; from $165 per night
Bonaventure Hotel/Bonaventure Brewing Co., Los Angeles
When the Bonaventure Hotel opened in downtown Los Angeles in 1976, it was considered the pinnacle of postmodernism.
An oasis of luxury in the center of urban LA, the building features a central atrium flanked by four clovered-room wings and walkways lined with specialty shops, boutiques and restaurants serving food from around the world.
Amid the opulence and global grandeur sits the Bonaventure Brewing Co., a brewpub on the hotel's fourth-floor outdoor pool deck.
In 1998, the hotel's proprietors crane-lifted a 10-barrel brewery onto the property and turned Bonaventure's poolside restaurant into Downtown LA's only brewpub.
Today, as the city's craft beer options grow with the national trend, BBC (as it's known locally) remains a brewing bastion, sitting so far removed from street level that many Angelenos don't even know it exists.
But get a room at the luxury hotel and enjoy a Marathon pale ale on The Patio (an outdoor lounge with unparalleled views of the surrounding city) and you'll feel at home with the Hollywood elite.
Bonaventure Hotel/Brewing Company, 404 South Figueroa St., Los Angeles; 213-624-1000; from $169
